It was only until he became one (accidentally) that he found out he actually enjoyed it. That situation parallels my experience with Space Trader: Merchant Marine. With a title that would cause most to fall asleep before they finish reading it or others to believe the game is based around Gorden Brown, a special strike force of economists and lasers the game proved quite a surprise and I ended up enjoying myself."
