We will for sure have to tackle this issue for the actionscript version but
solving it is going to take quite a bit of work.

Basically I'm thinking the server will have a copy of all saved game data
(ie those values that persist across maps, such as the one that keeps track
if you've floated down as a puffball or not), but getting that working is
going to take a bit of work and time.

For the in game games, each game client has access to his own data and they
have the ability to communicate with each other and share data.

Let's think this out...

What are some of the reasons you'd want data stored on the server?

The one you mentioned would be the amount of gold they have.  What if when a
player entered a game, they broadcasted how much gold they have to the room
and each game client stored that information so that everyone then knew how
much gold that player has?

What do you think about that?
