Cool SSH Account?

I am currently connecting to my system using SSH. I have setup a game server for someone I know (usr/local/games/ja) but I cannot always be adjusting files and restarting things for them so how can I give them full access to this directory with out worrying about them messing up my system. I have been learning so much around here thanks everyone for sharing your Linux knowledge with me.

Try
* creating an account for the gamer to use
* give the gamer-user account minimal rights
* modify ssh so that the gamer-user can log in
* give the gamer-user the rights needed to modify files in the directory with the games
* create a softlink from the games directory to the gamer-user's home directory

Not exactly the response I was hoping for.

If someone could tell me how to setup an account like the one described in my first post that would be great.
