That doesn't say anything about accessibility or game style.

I think most people would say that solitaire is a casual game, and
minesweeper isn't.

I have a simple definition for a "Casual Game" that I always use:

"Casual games have a short duration of play and are easy to learn."

As a result of these two dynamics, casual games are a mass market
phenomenon. To some extent, it does not matter what we, as an industry,
think. It matters how we define ourselves to the end user: short and easy.
