I agree, that there is no suitable game tag, and probably use::learning
does not fit will.
Generally we have a minimum 7 packages per tag to avoid tag explosion.
With auralquiz, kwordquiz, kgeography and purity-ng we have only four,
while the others are served well with use::learning.
I think currently use::gameplaying and may be use::learning could be

I can't answer this one with certainty, but I believe the review
interface is only accessible by selected people.
