Players connect to a gateway which tells them the server to connect to.
Once connected, they can request the list of games running. This is a
list of _all_ games running across the poker cluster.
Once players have the game summary, they can request the details, e.g.
what seats are occupied, etc.
I know the id and thus the pid of each player since everything from
the client side goes to a matching player process. The issue is that
messages are routed to a game by the player process and so the game id
in the packet needs to be converted to a pid.
I'll go with term_to_binary for now and trade packet size for speed.
