I would add another one that applies to guys that host games and have no concept how to design a playable balanced scenario…

I participated in a couple of games where I had to exit my troops off the far end of the table. The problem was even if I had made the maximum move each turn with no opposition I still could not exit the table edge before the game ended.

Another example my defending force could only be activated if the enemy came within X inches of them. The scenario was designed so the attacker could by pass my units and still win. There was no combat whatsoever.

I could provide more examples…
