I agree, it is hard to come up the specific scale of handicap, however
what I meant by 'easy' is that to give handicaps in Rental chess does
not require any special torture to the rules.

As for where the handicap zorkmid comes from, from the same the salary
per turn comes from. However my original idea that I discarded was to tax
the better player, but such a rule would be far too complex I would think.
