A game is done for fun, can be skilful and is non-athletic, say darts, or chess etc. A sport can be done for fun and is athletic as well as skilful, say rugby or football, etc.
a game is something for fun.
a sport is something people often place bets on.
when there is a lot of money involved in a game, the "game" becomes a "sport."
dictionary.com defines a game as "a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators."
Sport is defined as "an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature."
There is virtually no difference in the meaning of them, even when using them as verbs. For example, you can make fun of someone by making game of them, or sport of them.
Where the two words differ somewhat is when they are used as adjectives. For example, you hunt game (used as a description of what you are hunting). Sport as an adjective can describe any number of games and is also used to describe clothes.
Game you can play with your friends like on a low level. Sport is on a bigger scale like between states or countries.
