Get somebody else, preferably who has not played the game, to proofread them.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Thomas Whitten wonders...

What are some irrational reasons you have for not buying a set of rules one would otherwise play? (As opposed to other reasons people buy rulebooks, such as collecting.) I've left off things such ‘poor layout' and ‘lack of diagrams', as I would consider those rational reasons for not buying a set of rules. Perhaps others would disagree.
