But have not (yet) run a controlled study to validate or negate these observations. Your thoughts and experiences?

by Hawke Robinson published May 25, 2017 last modified Oct 04, 2017 06:11 AM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Here is a summary of many observations I have made over the decades through various experiments in trying to optimize the RPG experience.

She asked: "What's the research question/hypothesis?"
