These rule changes create opportunities for cooperation, as well as the possibility of crises. That’s because most players will probably end up owing far more than they can hope to repay if they ever have to cover all of their debts at once.

This creates a great opportunity for players to learn how debts get restructured, as well as the importance of knowing everyone’s place in the hierarchy of the capital structure.
