I was reading SJG'S Murphy's Rules the other day and wondered. Is there a updated version of this somewhere for games made after that was published?

For those not familiar Murphy's Rules was a column in Pyramid magazine that pointed out serious flaws/oddities in board and RPGs. Things like in HERO games a baby can apparently throw a football the length of a football field. Or I believe in Runequest a person with few hit points has a greater likelihood of surviving a limb removed

Who's got the flaws?

I used to have a book collecting those...haven't thought about them in decades. Wish I still had it!

I remember these. It would be cool to see a reboot.
These look like fun! I notice that SJG was its own target in half of these, which is classy as hell - it takes confidence to have a sense of humor about yourself. It would be harder to do something like that today since simulationism is out and abstract is in.
