What are your thoughts on house rules?
I use them in one case - because my wife loves Carcassone, and I don't, so we play with a hand of tiles because I know that she likes it and it adds enjoyment for me. But in general, I don't like house rules and I think using them is actually indicative of a game that you don't like. In fact, my example above is case-in-point - we use the house rule because I don't like the game! Happy wife, happy life after all.
But is that a problem? It shouldn't be, because we have MANY AMAZING games out there! They don't all have to be perfect for me, or you, or anyone.
