I received my copy of Hail Caesar in the mail yesterday. I'm still working my way through it but from what I've read so far, I like it. This book does not take itself too seriously. The rules appear to be common sense and reasonable. The central premise is that these rules are for friends to sit around a play a reasonable game together, not for tournament play. I enjoy tournaments every now and again, but week to week, I play for both myself and my opponent to have a good time.
On first read through, these rules look like they may deliver what I'm looking for.
