History of the play

If we were to built a narrative from this play, we could say something like this :

"This game with 23 participants had a typical old style slow science dynamics. People worked hard at publication an focus on publications. But when they try to falsify others, they work even harder. The result is a very slow discovery process with an extremly high quality (and avg >0.995% of true results for theories)
