There is a Prize Fund, which reflects how much money the winner will get when they win the game. The Host may change the value of the Prize Fund at any time by publishing a Story Post stating the new value and explaining the reason for the change; its value is tracked in those Story Posts.

forWin doesn’t have to mean Win.  Also, for more money people do crazier things.

CoV against ->  for If the Host wants a story hook, why not. The prize money could have an effect during the game.
