I think that is the most coherent game theory there is. Have fun. At Gencon I had quite a few discussions about game mechanics and set up, but at the end of the day, if the game is fun to you, play it.
For me, rules, whether in a RPG or board game, are tedious and take away from what I'd rather be doing . . . which is really fighting zombies in the apocalypse . . . and keep me from getting to the meat of things. But there is another side of the discussion.
Some gamers really enjoy mechanics, the complexity of figuring something out, with equal emphasis put on the playing field that allows them to better figure out their odds of survival. If I have X and X skill and he has X and X skill, then I have an X chance of overcoming it. This is gambling at its heart, which is what most games are, some form of gambling, however complicated.
It all began with the caveman running the odds against spearing the cave bear!
