 * @short The main KDE game object

 * The KGame class is the central game object. A game basically

 * - Player handling (add, remove,...)
 * - Game status (end,start,pause,...)
 * - load/save
 * - Move (and message) handling
 * - nextPlayer and gameOver()
 * - Network connection (for KGameNetwork)
 *
 * Example:
 * \code
 * KGame *game=new KGame;

       * A "clean" policy means that the property is always the same on every

       * A "dirty" policy means that as soon as setValue is called the
       * property is changed immediately. And additionally sent over network.
       * This can sometimes lead to bugs as the other clients do not
       * immediately have the same value. For more information see
       * changeValue.
       *
       * PolicyLocal means that a KGameProperty behaves like ever
       * "normal" variable. Whenever setValue is called (e.g. using "=")
       * the value of the property is changes immediately without sending it
       * over network. You might want to use this if you are sure that all

     * the given player.
     * Note that you HAVE to overwrite this function. Otherwise your
     * game makes no sense at all.
     * Generally you have to return TRUE in this function. Only then
     * the game sequence is proceeded by calling @ref playerInputFinished
     * which in turn will check for game over or the next player
     * However, if you have a delayed move, because you e.g. move a
     * card or a piece you want to return FALSE to pause the game sequence
     * and then manually call @ref playerInputFinished to resume it.
     * Example:
     * \code
     * bool MyClass::playerInput(QDataStream &msg,KPlayer *player)
     * {
     *   Q_INT32 move;
     *   msg >>  move;

    * It is called when a new game connects to an existing network game or
    * to the network master. In case you do not want all players of both games
    * to be present in the new network game, you can deactivate players here.
    * This is of particular importance if you have a game with fixed number of
    * player like e.g. chess. A network connect needs to disable one player of
    * each game to make sense.
    *
    * Not overwriting this function will activate a default behaviour which
    * will deactivate players until the @ref maxPlayers() numebr is reached
    * according to the KPlayer::networkPriority() value. Players with a low
    * value will be kicked out first. With equal priority players of the new
    * client will leave first. This means, not setting this value and not
    * overwriting this function will never allow a chess game to add client
    * players!!!
    * On the other hand setting one player of each game to a networkPriorty of
    * say 10, already does most of the work for you.
    *

    * which is @ref playerList(). The second argument is the player list of
    * the new client who wants to join and the third argument serves as return
    * parameter. All <em>player ID's</em> which are written into this list
