List building, Points, cheating. . .no, not cheating if it is allowed in the rules
I am of course talking about another companies forums, and where it is quite acceptable to build a list that is the be all, end all of lists. A list to win. Not only acceptable, but seemingly encouraged and scoured over by the multiple rules lawyers to get either approval or scorn, and then no doubt copied.
Points and lists are not verbotten, but. . . well you all know how I feel.
Just seems, in instances I have come across far more than the rest of you, (No that is not a dig, I owned a game store, a GW Stockist shop, that got into FoW. . . ) to fly in the face of the first rule, "to have fun".
Maybe my little LGS had a problem with too many list builder, win, at all cost "hobbyists".
No, No 'maybe' about it!
I just agree with some game designers that points are not the best way. . .but the acceptable way to get to the table fast,
and for two guys that like to play a game and enjoy an evening, I'll tip a pint to that!
