comment Is it always better to play a knight immediately?
Depends on which version of the rules you are using -- the original German rules where ties go to the first player to play the knights or the later rules where ties cause noone to get the bonus.

comment What's the highest score that can be achieved by pegging?
The jack flip is not scored during play (pegging), but rather scored before play when it is flipped.

Its also confusing that it is written as "Consume>Trade", but the Trade happens FIRST, followed by the Consume.

comment What techniques do high level SET players use when looking at a layout of cards?
For every pair of cards, there's exactly one card that matches the pair to make a set. Since there are 81*80/2 pairs in the deck, and each set contains 3 pairs, there are (81*80)/(2*3) sets...

Your math is off as it counts sets that differ in attributes as the same even if the combinations of the differing attributes are differing. There are actually 1080 possible sets.

comment In Poker, what happens if paying a blind puts a player all-in?
In your example, it should be 310 total in the pot preflop -- 40 in the main and 270 in the side.

comment Recommendations for a wife who likes dominion
While generally a good game, I would have to say that Powergrid is about as unlike monopoly as you can get. Then too, its not a great choice for 2 players (Robots is a must for 2P)

comment Beginner Power Grid strategy
Depends on the group -- in many groups keeping your money hidden (though the rules state it can be hidden) will just annoy the other players, slow down the game (as they calculate how much you have) and result in you not being invited back for another game...

comment Can you build a settlement anywhere if you have the resources for a settlement and a road?
There is no such implication in that sentence. The only implication of the sentence is that from your initial setup of two settlements and two roads, you cannot build a third settlement without first building a third road.
