RPGaDay 2016 - Day 19


August 19 - What is the best way to learn a new game?

Play the game, twice, with different groups, and run it once. Different groups will help you catch rules that maybe the other group missed while both playing and running will expose you to different facets of the rules that you may not see entirely in playing or running. It probably does't hurt to have a good solid read through the rules and then do so a second time after some time has passed, but I know that can be a tall order for most folks given how busy we all are, but trying to get a number of different play experiences in, including running the game, is probably the best way to learn.
