"Sometimes the game is a better teacher than the rulebook."
EXCEPT! If you happen to know that this quote (or something very nearly like it) was actually said by someone else please tell me so I can credit them. My google searches haven't found anything. This thought occurred to me out of the blue and as I mulled it over and edited it I wondered if perhaps I hadn't inadvertantly stolen it from someone else and my brain just tricked me into thinking that I thought it up myself. Because it certainly sounds like something someone else would have thought up and said already, doesn't it? I don't know. Anyhow. I don't mean to take credit for something that isn't mine but if it is mine then by golly I want all the credit please. =)
