    How to use "Pettifog" in context?

    There is no secret to the success of "pettifog" - it is a strictly technique based game. To play, two players agree on a real or fictitious price for an underlying item and then swap shares of this item back and forth until one player has control of the majority of the underlying share, at which point that player is said to have "pettifogged" the item.

    Essentially, by buying low and selling high, a player can artifically influence the price of an underlying security, making it harder for their opponent to trade and make money.
