GW leads to the multitape game GM defined by Semmes in [14, p. 202], which can be described as follows: I has to play his numbers on a single rows, while II has to play her numbers on a table containing ω -many rows.
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
Games for lim ~F The idea to require II to fill a table with ω -many rows allows us also to define a (quite trivial) game for lim ~F (hence, in particular, for all Bξ ’s).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
Moreover it is easy to check that f : X → ω ω is in lim ~F if and only if there is some τ ∈ LSlim ~F such that f = fτ (this is because the use of the table with ω -many rows allows to directly code the definition of “being limit of a sequence of functions” into a single game).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
Parallel to our analysis, Daskalakis et al. [2011] analyzed a different setting: random games which structure is drawn from the Erd˝os-R´enyi model (i.e. each edge is present independently with the same probability p) and utility functions which are random tables.

Of course, a die can find itself located on the surface of a game table for a number of different reasons, one of which is surely the one of having taken part of a rolling experiment.
Quantum dice
At the beginning of the game the die is placed on the surface of the game table with its upper face oriented either along the z -direction, or along the x-direction.

The attentive reader will have certainly noticed that Fz = σz and Fx = σx , where σz and σx are two of the three Pauli matrices (and this explains why we have unconventionally chosen letters z and x to denote the two rolling directions on the plane of the game table).
