  • That's Not Fair!

    ...Or is it?

    Most people would say that a good game has to be fun. But does a good game have to be fair? For a lot of players, the feeling that a game is unfair can really suck the enjoyment out of it. But different players have wildly different opinions about whether certain games are fair or not. As long as nobody's actually cheating or breaking the rules, what makes a game fair or unfair, and how does that affect the experience of playing it?
