Element 39. Lack of Showstoppers > Relevance—Why Add This Element?

Relevance—Why Add This Element?

A showstopper is some aspect of the game that will simply stop you dead. It is obviously relevant because it can preempt your ability to succeed. It is not an element easy to overcome. However, if it is recognized up front, there might be a way to eliminate it. Quite often the showstoppers are simply ephemeral images, much like the Wizard of Oz.[2]

[2] In case you don’t remember, the Wizard was a guy behind the drapes pulling levers and pushing buttons that made it all appear real, when it was all an elaborate hoax.
