Abstract: We make several observations on the Mycielski ideal and prove a version of the perfect set theorem concerning this ideal for analytic sets: If $A\subseteq{}^\omega2$ is an analytic set all projections of which are uncountable, then there is a perfect set $B\subseteq A$ a projection of which is the whole space. We also prove that (a modification of) an infinite game of Mycielski is determined for analytic sets.
