We don’t like our players to metagame, but let’s be honest:
It’s really hard not to do ourselves.
When our players are strategizing out loud, we listen in, of course. And often we modify our stuff based on it.
“It’s for a better story!” we say.
Give this a try: Leave the table sometimes. Let your players plot and strategize. Let your villains not know what’s coming their way.
Let your players surprise you every now and again.
It really is a lot of fun.
