Quite often you see a GeekList appear with titles like 'Easily overlooked rules' or 'Forgotten rules' or 'I got the rules wrong... again.' They're all about a rule you've missed or forgot or misread.

Now, a lot of these have been done and you even see people apologizing for doing one ("I'm sorry if this has been done before"), but I love them! Yes, they have been done before - many times - but who looks at the old ones? And more important: these lists are valuable! Many times it helps others to play a game correct. You'll see quite a few comments about "man, I've played this game 436 times and I never knew about that rule" or "I totally forgot about that!".

So GeekLists about wrong/forgotten/misinterpreted rules are great! Keep them coming! We learn from them.

Here's the MetaList - probably not complete, but maybe it will be, someday. I listed it by games - alphabetically - and added the links to the GLs with the rules errors. In a lot of cases the comments also list quite a few common mistakes.

I stole the title of this list from ratpfink's GeekList (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...).
