The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. 
Currently the 8 richest men in the world have wealth equal to the 
poorest 3.6 Billion people. 
The gap between the rich and the poor has been increasing for decades. 
Each hand represents 10 years starting with the 1950’s. 
One player is the Rich. The other player is the Poor. 

At the end of 7 hands, the player with the most points wins. 
If the rich player wins, it is business as usual.
