Lovely book with themes of love, power, games & environmentalism on non-renewable resource. Piers Anthony sure broken the cliches of both science fiction & fantasy in this mashup when I first read it in late 1980s.
Games chosen by number (type of game) & letter (mechanical, chance, mathematical, tool etc...)
Naked serf get to wear clothing as a citizen. He's like a Gorbachev on trying to reform the system & the citizens revolted on not mining Photonite & reduced power in the known far future galaxy. Ditto their medieval counterpart in temporary merge as x Phazenite moved from Phaze to Photon to restore the balance.
Nice symmetry on Animalhead & aliens. Same with the contrast of untouched ,but static world of Phaze with polluted world with domes of high tech Proton.
