What are games without objects like to play...?
I don't know of any games without objects for sure. My guess is that the things we do that are obviously games, have obvious objects, and so the answer to your question is, "it's not obvious that we're playing at all."
But if you have any games without objects in mind, say them! I might be missing something.
Oh and right on about the Demon of the Ring.
I take it as a discipline, kind of: since I can only speculate and suppose what goes on in other people's heads, I'd better not base my thinking about games on what's going on inside their players' heads.
