The game consists of creating with the contribution of the various participants a pseudo-random number generator in a certain range 0-r. We can start for example from here: Given a pair of fairly large numbers (N, n) where N is odd and is such that N = p ^ 2 + n * p where p is a factor of N Given a number A, such that (x + n * A) * (x + n * (A + 1)) = N with negative x Take x as an absolute value and make x mod r = K K is our pseudo-random number The heart of the game is to find a way to vary A such that the pseudo-random numbers K are uniformly (obviously almost uniform) in 0-r
