This is a pyramid scheme repackaged
After reading the rules and the discussion that has occurred, I've decided that WMPBH is nothing more than a pyramid scheme slightly redesigned (with a skill component) to make it plausibly legal. An additional change from the classic pyramid is the lack of payment for recruiting. All this means is trhe author gets ALL of the fruit of your recruiting where in an illegal pyramid, you'd get paid something for recruiting.
The way this thing is designed, the author is guaranteed to make money and late players are virtually guaranteed to lose money. That is the 'essence' of a pyramid, and this reeks of one.
Just my .02 - I'm not playing this, as I'm too involved in SQ, Maranatha and soon, Dar.
