A playfield forms the basic foundation of an Amiga display and determines
its fundamental characteristics.  To form a playfield, you program the
hardware registers of the custom chips with the basic parameters of the
type of display you want.  Forming a playfield involves selecting the
number of colors, setting up a color table and bitplanes, and selecting
the resolution and display mode.

To understand how Amiga playfields work, it will be helpful to review how
the Amiga's video displays are produced.
