What Is Metagame Design?

In many games, there is a largely unseen factor that determines the winner. That factor may not be directly related to the game’s stated objective and rules; the method, action, or strategy used may push the supposed limits and/or environment set by the game. In other words, metagame is the game behind the game. Today, game design and developers should do well to get metagame design right while creating competitive systems, because this is where one can find a lot of emergent fun.
