Ashby’s book was my own first introduction to cybernetics and I recently returned to his discussion of regulation games in connection with some issues in Peirce’s theory of inquiry.

In that context it appears that the formula $\rho \subset [\psi^{-1}(G)]\phi$ would have to be saying that the Regulator’s good moves are a subset given by applying the portion of the game matrix with goal values in its body to the Disturber’s input.
