In this article, the metaphor of game provides insights into how successful Finnish scientists defined and depicted their creative processes. Data were juxtaposed from 26 life-story interviews of recognized scientists to reflect the complexity and individuality of the creative endeavor. Various stages and characteristics of creative processes are described in the form of a collective-data story, a collage-like dialogue that creates multiple layers of meanings to illustrate the creativity game and its elements (various roles, backstage work, rules of domain, and individual engagement).
