Obs: Something happened to my thread title( something really strange)

Hello there again guys!

I'd like to ask you one more time for a little help with a few hints/ways to convey my ideas in spoken (or written as well) japanese.

1 - How would I say [to level/to even] in japanese, without resorting to 五部に戻す/する ? as in "to even the odds"/ "to level the ground"

2 - What about, [to balance](as in a game design sense), as in "balancing (the rules/mechanics)of a game"

3 - Is there an equivalent to the expression "beggars can't be choosers" which can convey the similar idea with natural japanese?


I would naturaly provide the background like I always do before asking for input from you guys, but I'd like to spare you from the monstruosities I've said today, just this time -.-.

Thank you for the patience!

1)
?;)
The verb differs depending on the situation. ならす is the most appropriate for "to level the ground", but I think "to even the odds" should be treated as a kind of set phrase, something like 優劣をなくす.

2)
I would use バランスを取る.

3)
贅沢言ってる場合じゃない or 背に腹は代えられない
