True, I haven't gotten into the meat of the game quite yet, but I have seen 
time and again where a game simply gets too complicated for its own good. 
Case in point - my own internet simulation. We went from almost no rules 
three years ago to having pages upon pages of rules. Two months ago there 
were too many, and I'm only one of the people trying to CUT OUT rules.

I suppose the comment - vaugely made, as I did it at about 1am - should have 
been expounded to be something of a caution to not write rules just to write 
them.
