As far as I am aware nobody at any of the clubs I go to plays Impetus. I would like to play the game but having read the rules a number of times I am concerned that the preconceptions I have picked up from reading them will mean that any game I lead will not go well.

I suspect that the problem is me reading the rules as a relatively serious tournament gamer and trying to work out how to extract advantage from them as I read them but the rules not really being meant to be played that way. What I want is to play a game against an experienced player to learn the game then reread the rule and play the same player again and see if all the things I think are issues are actually not.
