Did you REALLY put down that you DO want boxed games but DON'T CARE if they have manuals?
Yes. I guess my thinking was that if someone had the BOX, then in all likelihood, they had the manual. smile But now you've got me to thinking. Hmmm.

I just assumed you considered playing without the manual to be part of the challenge! laugh laugh

Me too. laugh I was thinking that if you are smart enough to be a developer, you don't need manuals. wave

I've gone back and changed it - usually, I don't read the manuals, (most of the time they just say how to install and navigate - and I usually just figure it out myself), but now I'm thinking that NOT having the manuals might lessen any value or worth of the game. Thanks for getting me to think. smile

Mike,

I think if anyone at all is entitled to do whatever they wish with their game - the creator is certainly the only one who can always dispose of, sell, trade, paper their walls or do truly anything they want. Definitely get the manuals - though I must confess I never read the durn things til I have a problem. I just grump around my office, go online and look for posts, talk to my kids and then finally the last thing I try is to get the manual out. Then it's usually "Ohhhh so that's what I am supposed to do" laugh
