Have you ever read anything that was so technical, or full of exposition that you couldn't understand what you were reading?
While there are a lot of well-written gaming rules, others can be great cures for insomnia. It's even harder for someone with a working-knowledge of the rules trying to impart his wisdom on a pack of newbies, moments before they start playing.
