You’ve probably run into this: you pick up a game and it looks good. You read the rules and they look good! And then you start to play and…something is missing. Assumptions you didn’t notice but are required to understand start to crop up, procedures that were easy to read are hard to implement, whatever.
Now, in this day and age, and especially in the small press world that I do love to talk about, it’s easier than ever to reach out to creators and patch up little hiccups (or explain big chunks of assumptions that have simply gone undiscussed — it happens).
So…do you do that? Or move on? Or some mix?
