Entertaiment is a broad category of activity, encompassing everything from recreational to intellectual. It can be as simple as playing a board game or as complex as solving a puzzle, and it can be shared with others or enjoyed alone. While the word is often associated with amusement, entertainment can also be a form of catharsis or an escape from reality. For example, seeing a drama on stage or reading a novel can provide an emotional “cleansing,” while watching a comedy show or playing a strategy video game may engage the intellect.
