With regard to the strategies, there can be pure and mixed strategies. A pure strategy means, according to the definition above, that a player always picks exactly one of his avail­able strategies. But there are games where it might be ad­vant­ageous to make the op­pon­ent believe one might choose more than just one strategy.
