If a player’s rival is his own corporation, he wins if he has more capital than at least three other players


Suppose there are six players playing and there is no federalist in the game. Players: 1-2-3-4-5-6, where player 1 has the least capital, and player 6 has the most capital at the end of the game. Based on the rules, it turns out that there are three winners in the game? since game 4 has more than 1.2 and 3; Player 5 is more than 1,2,3 (and 4), and player 6, because it has more than 1,2,3 (and 4 and 5)?

Well, it depends on who your rival is, but there could be up to 5 winners

In an N player game, there can be any number of winners from 0 to N-1.

It's a game about meeting or failing to meet your own win condition, rather than declaring a single winner at the end of the game. This has various impacts on how the game plays out, some positive, some negative, some depending on your perspective on what you're looking for from your games.

(Of course, in a game where I have the most capital of all players at the end, I'm the true winner, regardless of how many other players met their victory conditions )

Yes that's correct. In fact, there can be 5 winners, if the rivals works out just right and (in your example) player 6 has 5 as a rival, player 5 has 4, player 4 has 3, player 3 has 2 and player 2 has 1. Since then they will all have more money than their rival. It's also possible that there is only 1 winner if that rivalry is reversed.

This game is not defined by who wins it.

It is defined by who doesn't meet their victory condition.

And there is always at least one player who won't meet their VC.
