I don't think the section is off-putting, but it does feel a little
out of place on the front page, before what you *can* do is explained.
I think these look pretty good, but a little visually busy. There are
lots of things that are surrounded by boxes, and it gets a bit much,
especially since everything is in black and white so there isn't
anything much to highlight the diagrams themselves. I think that you
should try to remove as many of the boxes as possible while still
making it clear what's going on. Something that might help is instead
of surrounding two pictures next to each other with boxes (like the
diagrams under the winning condition), just use a single vertical bar
to separate them, or maybe just the empty space would be enough. In
other places, like where there are blocks of text above each other
that need to be distinguished, a short horizontal bar might be
sufficient. This is mostly a stylistic thing, but I think it could help.

hmmm... I do see what you mean about it seeming more complex than
but I like the Things You Can't Do section - it puts it all those
little things that sometimes confuse people all in one place for
what do others think? how off putting is this section?
Thanks for reviewing more Treehouse rules!
