Message to All Players in This Game

Suite à une remarque d'un joueur (certains ont bénéficié d'une faillite bancaire et pas d'autres), j'ai modifié les données initiales de la partie afin que tous les tycoons aient les mêmes liquidités et donc la même capacité de crédit pour le premier tour.

Following an observation from a player (some had the benefit of a bank failure and others not), I modified the initial data so that all tycoons have now the same cash and borrowing power for the first turn.
