I was talking about rulebook on BGG the other day. Constructing a rulebook by the game designer is not easy and it might often be more of a work by the developer. The rules should be carefully constructed and shouldn't expect the players to find them out by implications. One of the joy in wargaming is reading rulebook and finding every questions have been answered by the rulebook itself and need no further clarifications from the game designer.

What was your last rulebook reading that gave you joy and always answered your questions during gameplay without reverting to internet?  For me, the last time I had such a privilege traced back to Great Campaigns of American Civil War.  What are yours and why?

I have to say that I’ve recently got into LnL tactical and I’ve found that between the rules and the cheat sheets provided, all questions have been answered.  Mind you, I think it is on the 4.1th edition.
