What is the meaning of the expression two can play this game ? I have often heard it as a reply to a statement. When and in what context is it used ?

You can find the definition here
Two can play at that game: something that you say when you intend to harm someone in the same way as they harmed you:
When I found out that my husband had been having an affair, I thought "two can play at that game!"
If Person A is playing tricks/mind games, Person B's response is:
Two can play that game
meaning that B will use A's tricks against them.
