I took the Monoopoly rules back out again. I'm also moving these here because the indentationis confusing. Under the entry for Nobilis there were secong level bullets, then this at the three-bullet level.

  • Taken Up to Eleven in Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine: the author had to clarify that you can take a Wound to prevent someone from healing one of your previous Wounds — and might even want to, if playing as Nightmares' Angel or other Wounded Angel characters.
  • The Treasure attribute's upper echelons were so confusing that a free minibook, The Story Of Treasure, had to be released to clarify.

The third-level bullet appears to be about a different game: is the second level point below it about Nobilis or Chuubos?

I have commented out the following examples:

  • Monopoly:
    • The mortgage interest rules
    • The auction rule
    • Free Parking

  • Overtime in Collegiate American Football.

  • The computer formulas used to rank the BCS teams.

  • Icings are easy to spot and deal with. Conversely, icings are hard as hell to accurately explain (at least until the rule was changed).

They are Zero Context Examples, and do not explain how these rules fit That One Rule. If you know what any of the rules are, and are able to expand the entries so that someone who are unfamiliar with the rule can see that it fits the trope, then feel free to do so.

How well does it match the trope?
