Quoted from Blackbeard:
Gee, is it THHHHAATTT bad?!
yes...yes it is. I had like a 30 min game on hobbit. After 15 min, I was wishing the ball would drain so I could stop playing. I was bored to living shit. The game is 0% immersive. Great games have a good balance, between great layout and rules that keep you engaged. Giving you short burst goals to accomplish that you care about, while having a bigger overall story you are trying to complete and acknowledge. It's a fine line to walk, as if you make the rules too complicated, nobody knows what is going on, and don't know the objective, nor care about it. There is no fun in chaos.
