I was warned, by folks that never played it, that the original West Wind Vampire Wars ( I think there's a new version on the way ) was virtually unplayable as written.

I was told by someone who had played it, it had beautiful concepts, but required so much to make functional as to be almost writing your own game.

I'm grateful to both; I bought it, found it fascinating, but, at best, an idea source book.

I put 'some weight'; in most cases, it's not enough, and in a blog, I expect 'we'll be setting it up Friday night, and will post results'.

GiantMonster wonders...

It seems lately that I have read a lot of game reviews where the reviewer has read the rules but didn't play a single game before writing the review.

So my question to you is how much weight do you give a review where the reviewer gives their opinion on the rules without actually playing the game?
