You might change the word "bet" to "wager"-it's a little more refined and civilised...and insert in the title "wager match-entry fee required"

wager: i did not even hear this word before and i am afraid that non natives either (please confirm me other european forumers! thanks!)

We need a word that is so common and simple so everyone (an uneducated native, or a foreigner) will understand.

so this is why i chose "bet" or "betting", i only "feel" that i use is clumsily in my sentences.

other words that could be ok, and commonly known
- champ(inonship) game
- fee
- paying game
- award(ed)/(ing) game
- prize(d) game
- gem winning game
- Geme :) :) (meaning gem paying game)

or such are widely known words i think.

but actually "bet"/"betting" is very good i only think it is weird how i use it.

the only reason i know what "wager" is, is because i learned it at school. so it's not really common imo :)

the only word i could come up with that hasn't been said yet, is "gamble/gambling"

Well the grammar is corrected now. Just change all instances of "wager" to what you will and it will all be fine and dandy. :)
Just remember your article adjectives, please. :D
Thanks!

- Stone bridge can be built only by humans.
- new TC generation logic: if there are fewer players than 4 than the generator will think there are 4 players - placing TC-s around the "imaginary" players too.
