  This week Chris and Fletcher are alone again as they talk about rewriting the rules to games.  That could mean rewriting a whole rulebook to make it clearer, writing rules summaries, modifying the game with your own rules, or even making up an entirely new game with the components of a game you didn't find all that great to start with. Speaking of rewriting rules, check out www.orderofgamers.com for some amazing rules summarizes.
