Game Genre Concept: A Summary Treatise of a Cooperative Game Model

Hello All,

In a world of competitive game play we're all familiar with, that is team versus team sportsmanship. Or individual free for all gamesmanship is very much like a pseudo-form of "athletic combat". To turn this present game model on its head and invert it into a cooperative game model. Instead in overall relation to what has been known to us for thousands of years in various outlets of competitive game theories. Versus athletic or popular parlor games such as: chess, checkers, backgammon, etc... Taking our present competitive game models as a subtle form of combat, be it one Win's and many others lose.

To another level of social involvement in a "cooperative game model". Where mutual reconciliation is the benchmark for all winners based on there relative performance be it individuals to numerous teams in concert with one another. Achievement here is based on mutual cooperation that is the total highest value to be obtained in game play.

There can be two types of a "cooperative game model", one is basic and the other advanced. A basic cooperative game model will have a fixed point as a end goal or objective. An advanced cooperative game play can consist of transitory or random goals as they appear during game play. Be it with an individual or more than two teams involved in conjunction with the other. Thus removing the binary need or only two teams combating each other as usually seen in a competitive game theory.

A "Team" can consist of several sub-cluster mini-groups or niches that the over arching team will seek in duty roles to be accomplished as a threshold goal. Current competitive games can be reworked with a cooperative game model treatment in a creative fashion. Or new game genres can be invented such as: humanitarian, political, or financial. With a cooperative game model treatment layer to showcase the social needs or obtaining mutual end goals.

A) Humanitarian Game Genre: Where several teams have to work together via game play so as to how to recover from a natural or man made disaster.

B) Political Game Genre: Where several teams work out new policy in the creation of laws befitting the common good of all citizens, immigrants, and foreign visitors.

C) Financial Game Genre: Where in the creation of virtual or real capital monies and how it is managed and reinvested.

There can be "Games" that take into account the genres listed above and many others to form a meta-game environment. Where all these factors are at play at once, be it as a social simulation or other form of game play synthesis in comparison to the overall end game objectives.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Day

Hello All,

Today I'll share another three of my original spiritual wisdom quotations for your enjoyment. With my other segment of "Favorite Quotes of the Day" following right behind.

Good day.


834) If one is a simpleton or a child of youth one is closest to the bountiful multitudes of God. Due to the authentic and true behavior displayed by joyful glee of a child, or a simple man or woman. In authentic behavior there are no: lies, deception, half-truths, guile, or even hypocrisy. One must meet truthful behavior directly and honor it for what it truly is. Otherwise one is not encountering the Holy, but the falsehood of all lies in their lives, which is the polar opposite to God(dess) the Merciful. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

835) To understand is to allow the freedom and range of motion by one's comprehension. Understanding comes to those who are sincere in their intention to know. Such a notion of knowing must be based on a total awareness of one's motives. Otherwise a person's intent to understand is led astray or worse tricked into falsehood. To understand the truth as it presents itself is to marvel at the commonplace and sublime in one instant moment. Truth is often at a premium in a world of double-standards. However it is the brightest yardstick to gauge our understanding of our world before us. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

836) Our souls have never left our place near/in God(dess). We that come to be reborn in the physical world are here to love and be loved.

Our only standard is to live fully and wisely by unconditional love. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
