  • Thou shalt make up new silly terminology, such as "Jimmy, Tommy, and Skyke".

  • Thou shalt say dumb things every once in a while, by defending randomness, matchup luck, or pretending any massively underpowered or overpowered things are fine. Following that, thou shalt have those be extremely mockable statements. Hearthstone uses the tried-and-true "too confusing for new players", EA uses "pride and accomplishment", awetalehu uses "strategicality tactics balance".

    • It is worth noting that Chess Evolved Online has already succeeded by taking a piece from each of those statements, by first implementing the "Pride" piece, and then combining "...new players" with "...tactics balance" to accomplish nuance.
  • Thou shalt fill the game with stupidly underpowered things.
  • Thou shalt have players call you an idiot most of the time, for justified and not-so-justified reasons. As a bonus, thee games where players call the game pay-to-win seem to be even more successful.
  • Thou shalt prioritize theme significantly over gameplay.
  • Thou shalt have a set of pieces or mechanics completely bomb on arrival.
  • Thou shalt devalue people's armies shrewdly. Do not nerf any direct problem piece, but nerf some random other core part of it that other armies also use, so you can ruin some random other armies in the process while claiming plausible deniability.
  • Thou shalt have the game's base be a clone of a popular, already-well known game.
  • Thou shalt turn your game's meta into an adorned version of Solitaire, Rock-Paper-Scissors, Tic-Tac-Toe, or any combination of the three.
  • Thou shalt not actually play your game.
  • Thou shalt wait for extended periods of time before adding new gamemode-style features.
  • Thou shalt continually switch your game's monetization scheme.
  • Thou shalt ban criticism.
