The study of non-local games has involved fruitful interactions between operator algebra theory and quantum physics, with a starting point the link between the Connes Embedding Problem and the Tsirelson Problem, uncovered by Junge et al (2011) and Ozawa (2013). Particular instances of non-local games, such as binary constraint system games and synchronous games, have played an important role in the pursuit of the resolution of these problems. In this talk, I will summarise part of the operator algebraic toolkit that has proved useful in the study of non-local games and of their perfect strategies, highlighting the role C*-algebras and operator systems play in their mathematical understanding.
