4 Important Rule Changes That Make Every Game More Fun

Rules are a necessary part of every game, the main reason we can have competitive pastimes that aren't just about hitting each other with sticks.

Well, not just about hitting each other with sticks.

But games comes in all forms, whether they're board, card, or video, and although all these forms of games come with "official" rules, sometimes those rules aren't always the most appropriate. Because these games are played by people with wildly varying levels of experience, ability, and competitiveness, the official rules are often tweaked to suit each particular group's needs. These variations are called house rules, and whether they're done to make the game more fun or more fair, they can dramatically change how the game is played.

The reason this tweak came into being is obvious. The game is mostly played by kids, and kids are greedy idiots. Getting money is fun! Who wouldn't want that?

This is an invite to join our on line V:tM chronicle, Boston by Night: "Power Corrupts..."
Novice players are always welcome as are old pros- rules lawyers need not apply.
Boston is a large city Kindred-wise (about 50 vampires). All of the characters were, at one point, PCs. Since the game has lasted over 5 years, players have come and gone but some NPCs remained for various reasons. I can no longer handle playing all of the NPCs.
I'm looking for new players to take over NPCs and make them your own. It can be intimidating to jump into an established character in a long running game, but these NPCs are very broadly drawn and have had minimal interaction.
