Playing in a game with some friends years ago. A bystander came up and sat and watched. Then he pulled out a rule book signed by the author. Then he started offering his opinions. Then he started telling us we were just flat out playing wrong. Then after one of my friends moved his figures the bystander declared that he had moved horribly, reset my friends units, then proceeded to lecture us as he moved the units to where he thought they should go!!

He soon left the area…..
