Yeah, it’s not just boardgamers. I’ve see this in role players, miniatures players and board gamers. In all genres of gaming there seems to be a spectrum (oooh-word of the day!) between consumers of highly polished commercial products–who don’t tend to stray far from the provided rules and scenarios–and DIY gamers–who tend to be less rules focused and more interested in overall narrative. Vive la difference!
