I feel that threads are way over-kill for this problem.

What other APIs and Techniques are there? Why do you think there is encryption? I found this in the GetGameMetaData: "encryptionKey":"" and "decodedEncryptionKey":""

comment Simulate forces on a connected chain
There is a fundamental problem with this solution, because the player keeps all energy, it acts like it's inside a sphere bouncing around. In a real system the chain, asteroid, and player would absorb energies to swing about as well as rotate back and forth. At highly tangential velocities, it might look okay, but directly against the line of tension will cause a large "bounce"

Mark, assuming the chain doesn't collide with the asteroid, you only need one "segment" As long as you don't reach the maximum length, you can ignore the chain. edit see my comment on my answer.

@ashes999 No it is not necessary, but on some cards, it does help performance. In some extreme cases, it's required by the card.
