Rules. The important part of a game. They are actually the game. But are you like me, fed up of reading them over and over because you have forgotten them or they are too complex or because you haven’t played the game in a while (that's more me)? So we are now going to babble about rules. Should they be complex? Should they be standardised? Should they all be made so the players can jump right in? Or should they be something we have to trawl through to get to the heart?

First impressions of brand new games that we’ve played. Did we think they were good, bad or ugly? Also, try to guess what these games are by their vague descriptions.
