What happens when different people come together to play the same game with different rules without knowing about the differences?

I have found that many people play life's game with different rules and meet with people with different rules of engagement. I don't get why this is so but some how I think the out may not be pleasant. What do you think is the reason behind this and the outcome?

      Apr 21 2013: Thanks ZX Style, your response is right on point. Yes we have people whose values and beliefs allowed them to design their individual rules of success in a certain way. Yes it could be very similar among people in a mono cultural environment but it breeds conflict and distrust in an intercultural workspace.
      Thanks for your insight it will be good to hear more from you.
