So, I played Do: Pilgrims of the Flying temple for the first time on Thursday and later again on Saturday.
The first time, the Journal seemed to enhance play.
The second time, the Journal seemed to be more of a distraction.
One thing I noticed was that on the first go, we didn't touch the journal until we role played out what we were planning on writing. The next time I played, we did the journal part willy-nilly. Including before and after the role play.
I checked the rules and there are no clear guidelines on this. I am trying to figure out if one group gelled better than the other or the Journal is a distraction or..?
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
