Playtime and nipping/biting

I have an 8 week old male JRT that I just received three days ago. Here's my problem and question. During playtime with me all he wants to do is nip and bite. I read the FAQ section about this subject and tried to tell him "NO" loudly and push his mouth away when he tries again. He thinks I'm playing with him. I feel this encourages him to do it more. I tried getting a bit more aggressive but he won't stop. Will this take time or am I doing the wrong thing? What should I do?
Thanks for any info provided.
