jogo

If there are any speakers of Brazilian Portuguese here, could you tell me if the reference and connotations of jogo are the same as the English "game" or whether it is a more general term (like German spiel or Turkish oyun, for example). I'm particularly interested in the case of capoeira, which is described as "jogo" in Brazil ("jogo" is one of the more common words in capoeira songs) but probably woudn't be described as a "game" in English.
