Metagaming

Using information, resources or rule knowledge unavailable to the simulated in-game participants to improve a players competitiveness in a game. Example: a player may know from past games that elephants fear fire. The battle being simulated may involve forces that have never faced elephants before. A player who starts a fire with the knowledge that the rules reward such actions would be metagaming.
