RPG-a-day, day 9: How has a game surprised you?

Day 9: How has a game surprised you?
Sometimes, games surprise me with how their mechanics work out in play. In the case of FATE, I was really enthousiastic about the prospects of giving it a go, and the game then fell completely flat! But there have been positive surprises too: I had read Dungeon World, and I just could not figure out how the system was supposed to work. And then I got to play in a game, and it was amazing! I’m still a big fan of the Apocalypse World Engine.
