    Correct.

    's does not mean plural: acts like link word.

    Sometimes it seems like your rule book is a rudderless ship that has lost both power and anchor.

    I meant that in the sense of these rules are near and dear to your heart. (It would be nice to have a written copy.)

    I meant it would be nice to see all of the rules (i.e., what is allowed).


    The rules that you use 99.9% of the time do not mention linking words or letters.

    Maybe 'revealing' or 'conceals' would be a better indicator. (Took me awhile, to see 'ammo'.)
