comment What does “poker size cards” mean?
There are actually 3 "standard" sizes in the US: Poker (2.5" x 3.5"), Bridge (2.25" x 3.5"), and tarot (2.75" x 4.75"); a narrow tarot size is occasionally seen, about 2.25" wide. Mini can refer to a range of smaller cards: from 1.75" x 2.5" down to 1"x2".

comment Creative handicaps in Settlers of Catan?
@TomAu Aside from the impracticality of increasing the numbers, the intent is to handcap only the more experienced player - asymmetric restrictions. Novices play with 4 and 5, old hands with 3 and 4. Not to mention that 5 & 6 would require also increasing the number of roads.

What are the three prictures - given the rules in Jefromi's answer, knowing the specific 3 pictures would allow the rest of us to try it.

comment When I put the robber on someone in Settlers of Catan, does the resource I take HAVE to be random?
@PatLudwig the FAQ is only for the latest edition, and without the latest edition's rules, it's in several cases going to violate the wording of the rules in use... without there being house rules, mind you... so the FAQ really isn't the final answer.

comment Too few resource cards to distribute, but only one player receiving that resource type. Do they get the cards?
Mine says player order, ending with the player who rolled the dice. Again, older edition.

comment Keeping track of many independent variables on a physical board?
EXTREMELY clumsy in play. It's the cumbersome in Shadows, with a d6; it's far worse with a D10 or d20, as consecutive numbers are not adjacent, except on specially made spindown d20's.

Use a 2.25" diameter wheel, a 1.75", and a 1.25" diameter wheel, stacked. A single shared hub runs through the center of all three and down into the board. Put the arrow pointing to the selection in the corner of the 2.25" square...
