dkieft Posted August 8, 2015 Report Share Posted August 8, 2015 This thread brings to me a long time pet peeve. I have been guilty of this a thousand times in the past, but can we, just maybe, in this new edition, give a serious attempt to... just stop it! The thing is, over-lawyering rules is exactly what the internet does best. We see the rule says "XYZ" so we argue that "XY;Z" is wrong. It is also what often makes games un-fun. Yes, it is nice to have a clean, clear rule set that leaves few question during the game... but when we see a vague-ish wording on a rule, lets not try for the most literal reading. Rules writers are (I think) human and might not always be clear! Lets interpret rules as what makes the most sense in these cases. "I summoned stuff so I lose" is a scenario that makes zero sense. Can we as intelligent players assume that is not the actual meaning of the rule? The AoS rule set is the time to start this. It is super simple and there will be cases where the players might need to "translate" unclear rules. Can we please begin to use common sense instead of "Lawyering" our rules? The game is for fun after all and Lawyering the community into a bad rule does not add fun for anyone really... other than for those lawyers out there....
