How do I say that something being a fair game in Russian?
Fair game wasn't meant to be read literally like честная игра. What it means is something that is allowed to be hunted for by the rules: If you got your purse stolen from an unlocked car the police won't do anything, it's a fair game.
The origin of the phrase has much to do with the hunting regulations, the game (animals/wildfowl) can either be banned or allowed to hunt for. The allowed game is simply a fair game.

- Threesomes, positions, cheating, tips on how to stay hard, cunnilingus and whatever was troubling or confusing, anything was a fair game.
