Player (role)


A participant that takes full part in the game. The most important player role.


A participant called a Player (or also a Gamer, especially if abbreviated to "G" in diagrams) should produce sounds (i.e. make music) while following the rules of the game. It's safe to say that each music game should be played by at least one Gamer.

Most often Players are making decisions that are not only musical, but result directly from the rules of the game. Sometimes though Gamers' tasks don't involve a decision, but require them to follow cues. In that case, cues might be given by another participant or be read from game objects according to the rules of the game (for example randomized with cards or spatial relations of items). In some cases, the task of the players is strictly performative.

Players/Gamers are the main users of game goals and victory conditions.
