    I went to a German friend’s 70th birthday party tonight and he had that kid with pipe photo on his poster of pictures of him at various ages. He swears it’s him but I think he’s pulling our legs. But what if it is him?

    I agree, to each their own. For me, games and rules are like music, we can each like our favorites for different reasons, or I can even like more than one type at a time. There is no way to say one is better than another.

    Ha…excellent point. So true as well, when we consider the number of ‘rules lawyers’ who try to tell us that our favourite rules are not representative of history…hmmm; always good to remind them (1) we are playing with little figures and (2) it’s about having a good game as well as a degree of simulation.

    The ‘simulation’ has to be inversely proportional to the ‘game’ factor, although some rules (‘Snappy Nappy’ for instance) seem to get the balance just right.
