"The idea is to allow players to begin on the levelest of playing fields with equal amounts of 'currency'.

The winner is the one with the the largest contribution to the wealth of the players as a whole."

"In the case of game design should we try to start from a generic game framework?"

NOTE: Some of the foregoing in this BuzzTheHill post is not fictional. Consider its appearance here as a public disclosure and as such, to the degree something novel and not obvious to those skilled in the art has been discussed, the specific intent was/is to put it in the PUBLIC DOMAIN.
