Okay, so I tend to read stuff while I'm on the potty. When you've got little kids around, the bathroom tends to be the quietest spot in the house. I tend to have a few game rulebooks "on hand" to help pass the time. Some games have rules that make great reading, Galaxy Trucker, for example, makes for a good read.

Other games... not so much.

Most of the rules are printed in a type that is so small that I would need to be Ray Palmer, shrunk down to the size of a walnut in order to get a good look at them. Not only that, most of the interesting stuff is on the cards, and looking at stacks of cards on the toilet is awkward.

Never read rules from games that are extremely hard to find while you are on the toilet.

I don't mean they are difficult to find while on the toilet. I just mean they are difficult to find in general.

Some rules are only interesting if you can look at the gameboard while reading them.

Do not open gameboards while you are on the toilet.

Since I agree with you about that the toilet beeing the most quiet spot when kids are roaming all free spaces... Do NOT forget to LOCK the door if you like to be left in peace.

Don't take any older rulebooks in to read composed of non-shiny, conveniently absorbent paper as you might get distracted and confused and then ..... well you wouldn't want to read those rules again. shake

This game didn't have any images - which was probably a good thing.

You might find yourself getting just a little frustrated, and using game components for a purpose different than intended by the game designers.



Nothing better than getting the job done and taking care of business with Monopoly money!

The hardcover editions of the rule books just don't lend themselves to a visit to the can. And if you've got time to read the Battletech manual in the can, something's gone wrong.

It is much too dangerous to take rules that come in a tube into the bathroom. You may inadvertently grab the wrong roll of paper.
