Ok, see
and updated.

- the release summary mentions the Game type and its dual super-types
- we link both to the issues list entry,

The new text is: "The Game type represents things which are games.
These are typically rule-governed recreational activities, e.g.
role-playing games in which players assume the role of characters in a
fictional setting."

This tries to strike a balance between vague generality and the
RPG-oriented specifics from the types initial focus.  I'm happy to
tweak and refine this but at some point we have to say "good enough
for now". However we can keep talking here and in Github and evolve
the description further after this release goes live.

Do we have a rough consensus?
