The Game – Essential knowledge
There is one object to the Game – To get Rent!
Then become a Master at it, find The Key and get to NextLevel, where life is more valuable than wealth, finally.
This is largely achieved by acquiring secure exclusive possession to as much of the surface area of GameWorld as possible by any means, and then to collect it’s ever rising rental stream.
If you are a really wise trader, you’ll be aware of the timing needed to flip your property assets. Eventually if you are a leading GameMaster you will reach a level where you can start making loans secured against the value of real estate, known as DeadHands. Ultimately you may reach Elite status where you can write credit notes representing bundles of 1000’s of DeadHands and trade them on permanently with no guarantee nor insurance required.
In GameWorld rent is the only asset that rises in value. All other assets fall in comparison. Its also the only tax free asset. And the only asset bailed out by government of all sides and ideologies. Any player trading other assets is certain to end up a Slave. Its all priced in… to The Game.
There’s a dangerous FakeWorld myth circulating that talks about a popular game played there called Monopoly. The Game operates something like that so the myth goes. For anyone talking about it in public it’s instant GameOver.
Eventually the Game reaches a stage where it can no longer sustain itself due to all the rents being of higher value than all the other assets, goods and services being made and traded. This is the point where the biggest profits of all are available to the smart investor. As the pyramid collapses most of the DeadHands will fall to close to zero value. This is the time for the Game Master to buy up as many as possible and hold out for a short time for them to be bailed out by TaxFines and Slaves.
This is the time when rents rise more than ever compared to all other assets. Soon the DeadHands will exceed pre crash levels and your portfolio will be priceless overnight often rising 5 or 6 times in value within a single Saros.
Any good GameWriter will try their best not to define terms and rules too clearly. That way the players who are winning, Game Masters, can use this player granted power to understand how to play better, a great advantage over the rest, and then misdirect other players to get even further ahead.
