I must admit that with my decades of involvement in the hobby, I find my tolerance for “heavy” games decreasing. Perhaps it is that I find it increasingly difficult to sit through a 45 minute (or longer) explanation of rules. I also find it increasingly daunting to make my way through a 20+ page rulebook, with these massive tomes taking me back to my days of wargaming wherein such verbosity and detail was all-too-common. As I approach my 6th decade on Earth, I find myself looking for less complexity and complication, not only in the games I play, but also in life itself. Yeah … I’m getting old.
