Part of RAND's continuing work on the theory of games. It is shown that, given a pair of infinite metric spaces and a pair of respective finite mixed strategies, there exists a separable game with bounded continuous payoff on the cartesian product such that the given strategies constitute the unique solution of the game. An analogous result holds for polynomial games.
