Not really "stuck" either, rather insisting that I learn them, since I've noticed that a lot of people's "interpretation" of the rules is often way off base…

Last night my wife came in with a game (Pass the Pig, if anyone really cares), and she handed it to me and said, "We should play this tonight, but you have to figure out the rules."

This got me thinking. Over the years, I have been handed almost every game my wife, family, or friends has ever gotten, and I have been expected to read through and figure it out.

So am I alone in this, or does anyone else get this typecasting? Or are you the friend that passes on the rule and lets others teach you?
