Other: "They may pique my interest, but that doesn't necessarily open my wallet or change my gaming."

Honestly, I think I'm always looking for new rulesets to spark up interest, especially for some of my armies that have been sitting for years. And yes, nice looking rulebooks do real me in. Just like miniskirts

I think an attractive cover is a good idea, but I usually find out more before I buy. I would check it out at a website, for instance. :)

Like others, a nice cover at least gets me to look further.

"Other." I'm similar to the previous posters: a nice cover will attract me over to look at it. I have select gaming interests, so I may pick it up and look through it, but that is as far as I will go, before putting it back on the shelf. I have my rule sets I use. Not in need of anything new, as I am set, for the duration of my life, short or long as it may be. Cheers!

Since I buy most stuff on line, the cover would not sway me – depends on the period/scale more than anything else

I have become less interested in new rule sets as there are lots I have that I under-use; so unless the local gamers are mad keen on it I don't buy it
