  1. Interesting analysis. I fully agree on the idea of meta rules but I found it difficult to see especially communication as rule. (Sorry, I haven’t read your previous blog).But if you define meta rules such as kind of different means controlling play, then it is more understandable. Commucation is means to communicate formal and informal rules or to express agreement or disagreement, for example.
    Some points came into my mind:
    Cathegories are also interlinked with each other: social norms control communication and are dependent on the context etc.
    Social norms may be also group norms of the players if they have played together or othervise been as a group some time.
    Possibly you would include in the personal preferences also the negative side: what some especially don’t want to play. However, it may also been as a separate aspect.
