Yes, of course, that's what it literally means. But the more common
English word is "player", that's why Okrand used it in his translation.

It depends on the way of the translation.

{'ovwI'} = "competitor"

But if someone asked for how to translate "player" in game of cards, I
would suggest {'ovwI'} - depending on the context of course. If they
play in groups, not each one is a competitor.
