Spille spil / lege lege/lave numre

1.Play games = spille spil
(e.g. play playstation games/computer games/ chess etc...)

2.Play games = lege lege
(e.g. play childrens games like hide and seek, sports games, crocket, boule etc...)

3.Play games = lave numre
(e.g. teasing someone, fooling someone etc...)

The translation depends on the context:
1.: you actually play a certain game

2.: you play like children

3.: you are teasing someone or you are making a fool out of someone
