Since I have a long learning curve with such things I like to play the rules as written and try to "get them right". After several tries tweaking them is an option or perhaps just looking for another set.

Rules are sort of like recopies. IMHO you should follow them the first time to see if they're any good after that adjust to your own tastes.

People need to read and follow the rules.

The biggest crime against our hobby was indulging the notion that "these are your rules, if you don't like them, change them!"

Translation: "In order to indulge every petty wannabe who thinks they're smarter than everyone else, and desperate to maintain sales, we hereby give every player carte blanche to be an ass and blithely ignore whatever doesn't help them look clever, rather than show some discipline and learn to play the bloody game as designed because God forbid we expect any objectivity."

Am I wrong?

Maybe.

But try that changing or ignoring rules nonsense at a Poker game.

"My full house should beat his royal flush."

Or a Chess tournament.

"Castling is a BS move, we don't allow it."

Play. The. Game.
Do you agree?
