comment When is it a good time to offer a draw in chess, and when should I accept one?
The comment, "but at some point your wife is going to start making loud yawning noises", is priceless. +1

comment When is it a good time to offer a draw in chess, and when should I accept one?
Yes casual play. If you're a ranked player, I assume that would change when your willing to draw and when your not willing to draw.

I love settlers, but I've had friends balk at playing it since it looks complex to them. It's not a quick game to teach people.

comment With both Seafarers and Cities & Knights expansions, how many victory points should I play to?
I've noticed the omission from the rules books, hence why I asked the question. Even with my limited play of Cities & Knights, I've noticed it does slow the game down. I can see why people prefer not to combine the expansion because of the game length issue. I'm willing to try it, but I will make sure this is a large mass, ever on random maps.

revised Which resources are better at the start of a Catan game?
Tweaked my suggestion a little and added a warning about building on the coast, something one of my friends did when we started playing Catan.
