If I am in a game, I obsess over stuff like what I am planning to do with my character or looking up strategies, of course, I have played for a while and am a total geek for this stuff.
The only people that I have come across that do that are people like me, who also GM, and they're fairly rare. Most of my non-GMing players have to be whacked over the head with the rulebook every once in a while just so they remember it exists. I have actually heard some of these people say, "Why should I have to learn all the rules? That's the GM's job."
My honest, ruthless opinion? Drop one of the players. Of course, that's good for you, but not necessarily good for them.
What are you talking about? if you are not the one being dropped, it is fantastic!
Oh ho, are we going to have a ruthlessness face-off? YESWEAREONETWOTHREEGOIWIN
I say that any more than 4 and it just gets stupid. 5 is pushing it.
My personal comfort zone is five, with six being the absolute limit.
