Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Sir Gawain combines 3 "games' that were part of every epic poets repertoire in the 14th centruy---"Blow for blow";"temptress"; and " you get part of my winnings." What do you think is the thematic significance of each to the story?

Pt. 3

Violence, sex and gambling seem to be the running themes here mixed in with the Arthurian view of honour framing the themes.
