A "silly game" in this case refers to being in a confusing situation where two people are acting like they are in a competition and being in a game, and it is silly, or pointless. In English, sometimes confusing situations between two people are referred to as a "game", especially when it involves a romantic situation. Ex: I'm tired of these games. Does she like me or not?
