The question was specifically about "before playing" so I'll stick to that. The most important part, IMHO, is how long before playing should you eat. And I feel that is a very personal decision.

For an evening game, I need to eat no more than 4 hours before a game and no closer than 2 hours before. I'm generally indifferent to what the meal is.

When I play morning pickup, I'll wake up and have a small protein shake and small bowl of cereal. That will be ~1 hour before playing but I've never had a problem with it.

In the end, you have to figure out what works for you. Everyone's digestive temperment is different. (Mine, for instance, has changed over time.)
