    As Karol said, 遊んではならない is "You must not play".
    "You must play" is 遊ばなければならない。
    Other example; You must study now. 今、勉強しなければならない。勉強しなければいけない。
    I know it sounds something negative for you, but 〜しなければならない is positive, and 〜してはいけない、〜してはならない are negative.

    Hope it helps you.

    Exactly the opposite: 'You mustn't play'.
