Focused on imparting a skill, lesson, or piece of information to its player that would be helpful to them in other aspects of life, such as a faster typing ability or knowledge about a period in history.
A turn-based game mechanic is the opposite of a real-time game mechanic. In a Turn-By-Turn mechanic (synonym), each player has to wait for the other to have played, so that they can play, and so on.
