Is this supposed to be el partido as in political party? I think for this category el partido needs to be translated as "party" or "political party" not "game"

political party is "partido politico", with out context, "el partido" more commonly refers to a sport match, in fact a football match.

I completely agree but it shows up in the politics section as well as the sports section. I would say that futbol is political but I think the idea for learning the vocab is to understand both meanings. Vas a votar?...cual partido?...no votes PRI!...

I used "party" in an exercise and it was "game." now confused by the answer "party."
