comment What games are suitable for a large number of people with only a pack of playing cards?
What we called it in college can't be repeated in polite company, though the name I know it by most commonly is "Oh Hell." The rules on Pagat pagat.com/exact/ohhell.html describe in the variants section our scoring method (if I remember correctly, it's been a while), with each player earning 10 points per trick bid if they make their bid, or losing 10 times the difference between their bid and their tricks if they're over or under.

comment With both Seafarers and Cities & Knights expansions, how many victory points should I play to?
@ICodeForCoffee Yeah, you mentioned the rule books, but I wanted to be thorough about looking for any official sources for the answer, and documenting their failure to provide an answer, before referring to BGG. I also thought it was worth checking the online rules, in case they were newer than what you had and had been updated with the answer.

comment Resolving Diplomatic actions in a RISK-style board game
@Stephen Yes, that's what I'm suggesting. It is a bit Catan-ish. I wouldn't make the explicitly only valuable to one player, but instead something that players may or may not need depending on the circumstances. "I need to build more ships to cross this ocean, so I need steel, while you need more artillery for a land attack, so you need gunpowder."

The question is definitely on-topic here, see for instance the definition on Area51 area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/5220?phase=commitment or the thread on meta meta.boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/236/…
