Read all rule before writing?

Postby ps494 » Sat Jan 23, 2010 8:53 pm

The LG Bible suggests reading all the rules before writing. Reason being, you have to understand how each rule interacst with each other. I find this method somewhat inefficient, because you can't memorize each and every rule, and even if you could, you would probably want to reread the rule to make sure you aren't mistaken. What are your thoughts? Do you diagram rules as you go, or do you read through all of them and them before diagramming?

I wrote all the rules down as I read them in my own little shorthand/arrows-and-circles way. If that's what you call diagramming, then yes, don't wait. I also diagrammed the game by putting boxes or lines where letters/numbers would eventually go when I figure out where they have to be. That was done at the end when I had a better idea of how the game functions.
