Game-Players of ...

I just finish reading the Game-Players of Titan from Philip K. Dick

the idea, for those of you that don't know what i'm talking about, is that the population of earth is extremely reduced after a war against the Titanian. after the fight they impose (the book is not really clear about this) a new management system who's base on "chance" and bluff. The game seems halfway between Settler of Catane and LIFE. You pick a card with a number and move your piece accordingly without showing the card. The only thing you can bet is your proprietary titles, dividing the population in two groups : Property owner and None-Property owner (normally someone who lost all is property titles)

sadly the book doesn't give much details about the Game

but I'm sure that we can invent something like it and create an Habitat or a Exo-Planet who is working on it's principle

What do you mean a butterfly cause this ? How a butterfly can cause an enviromental system overload on the other side of a 10 000 egos habitat ?
