In comparison to the excellent thread Words that stop me reading further ..... about words that make you stop reading, what words make you want to read more about a game design, mechanics, etc ... what are some words that intrigue you?

I'll start ...

Unique.
Innovative.
Tactical (when referring to a wargame).
Elegant.
Depth.
Sandbox.
Well-designed (visual design, info design, etc).
Art.
Fog of war (also, when referring to a wargame).
Semi-cooperative.
Indie RPG.
Narrative.

I agree with 'elegant', I just have to read on after that
Weird, but I can't play a game if it's design is ugly, I would rather play an inferior game that looked nicer (female shallow Hal me )

I was aware of the '66 Batman bits for Heroclix, but never pursued the matter as I - rightly or wrongly - assumed it was one of those blind bag affairs. Otherwise I'd have nabbed a set and rebased them to use in some other game.
