What does the term "The Great Game" refer to?

the rivalry between the British and Russian Empires in Central Asia
the Livonian War in Northern Europe
the tensions between the U.S. and China
the Arab–Israeli conflict
Russia was fearful of British commercial and military inroads into Central Asia, and Britain was fearful of Russia adding "the jewel in the crown", India, to the vast empire that Russia was building in Asia. This resulted in an atmosphere of distrust and the constant threat of war between the two empires for the most of the 19th century.
