Come to think of it that's a pretty fair point.
Most games were very "learn by do" back then.
I recall it before the turning keys...
There's a lot of jargon in CW.

Machine-Gun (.50-cal) - To hit 7, 1 die damage, 3 DP. Cost $1,000, weight
150 lbs. 1 space. Holds 20 shots ($25 and 2.5 Ibs. each). Loaded
weapon costs $1,500 and weighs 200 Ibs. loaded magazine costs $550 and
weighs 65 Ibs. Area effect.

I forgot about the learning curve.
I've taken a look at some of the MMORPG's and notice the same kind of thing.
Changing the wording of the descriptive text could be interesting.
