Thanks for all the info guys and keep the tips coming. As someone very new to organizing games (a whopping three under my belt so far) its good to hear I'm doing something right, lol. This thread has given m some fresh ideas to run better games in the future as well.
+1 to all.
I definitely agree about player participation. First game I had there was one player asking a lot of questions on the radio I thought (at the time) weren't overly important. When I thought about it afterwards I realized they were important to the player's gameplay experience (I addressed the concerns at the time of course) and it truly made for a better game. The games after that I got a bit nervous when fewer questions and comments were made and poured over forums looking for AAR's to see how I did, lol.
