A famous plaything, beloved by geeks
If you are like many, my meaning you'll seek
From six letters to five, I'm a journey complete
You can play me once, but you won't get a repeat

You are

Life (or one of two Games of Life)

I'm a famous game, beloved by geeks

John Conway's Game of Life is famous and beloved by geeks

If you are like many, my meaning you'll seek

People seek the meaning of life

From six letters to five, I'm a journey complete

From CRADLE (6) to GRAVE (5)

You can play me once, but you won't get a repeat

Once you die, that's it (unless you believe in reincarnation)
