I don't think it'd do it any harm. Electronics, especially micro ones should be built to run in hot conditions anyway since its only in a small compartment. Its going to pick up heat running at the speeds it runs at one way or another. Its just the way it goes.

I don't see why it couldn't do it for a few hours every day, if it'll do it every once in a while. Its the same thing.
Shouldn't contradict for more wear and tear, just more use. Don't worry.

I'm sure theres a limit of how hot you should get it.
But with micro devices like these, they definetly will get hot, whatever you do.

Just be cautious, thats all.

hmm. I don't think you'll break it, but I wouldn't play on it for more than like 4 hours a day, because I've never dealt with those before, just for work and school, but I really don't see why you wont be able to run games off of it...really. If if it gets hot it won't really break unless you're maybe playing for 6 hours. contact the manufacturer and ask them.

Yea I've heard really rather terrible stories of Asus motherboards and others (but mostly Asus) overheating USB things with melting plastic seeping into the motherboard and killing everything! I'm very serious. Just be careful and don't use too much of that thing too long >_<
