I have always been very attracted to games. In most cases, they are stochastic simulations. A game could be understood as a pre-designed system in which the objective is to beat the other player. Around this large and almost ethereal goal, a set of variables is created to conform the universe of paths one can take. They are idiosyncratic to each game and are what make them unique. Furthermore, the more variables included, the more complex will the system be, with life, macroeconomics, physics, at the pinnacle of complexity.
I'm a big fan of board games and all the differents subtilities in most of them. One thing a fond interesting and can be related to investing is finding a "good combo" for winning. Some sets of cards are better and more robust like equities. Great read!
