– Has your view on Kickstarter evolved? – [...] I don't like seeing the money factor come to the forefront, even before the gaming fun, before the editorial fun. We don't say "It's so cool that 15,000 people are playing my game", but rather "I raised 1,500,000 euros".
I’ve recently tried reading the rules once, then just play the game. If I cannot remember the rule I just give it a best guess and move on. I’ve been completing a lot more games, rereading the rules afterward using this approach has increased my retention of the rules.
