comment How can we play a shorter but satisfying game of Arkham Horror?
Both this answer and this one were very helpful and I've been dithering too long because I can't accept both. I've accepted the other but I greatly appreciate your advice too (particularly about player count and the big 4).

comment Would it be viable to play pandemic with an “eradicate all diseases” win condition?
Are you saying that you've played games where you managed to eradicate all four diseases? (Eradicating one isn't that surprising, maybe even two, but all of them?)

Great advice, thanks! Keeping mean time between "things to do" low (for each player) is important in all games, and this is an area where we definitely bog down sometimes.

comment How to show turn order when turn order can change during the round
This is what I was coming here to suggest. (That or dual tracks, but this seems more elegant to me.) I feel like I've seen this mechanic but I cannot remember in what game.

comment Is it practical for the visually-impaired to play in casinos?
@TomPanning, it depends on the card, but about two feet (a little more "obvious" cards like aces). Face cards are hardest because all you get is the text in the corner, while on other cards you can see a pattern of pips. (Sorry for the delay; I didn't get a notification for your comment.)

comment Is it practical for the visually-impaired to play in casinos?
The people I've played with don't mean to be mean or anything, but especially when there are a lot of cards on the table, it can be hard to track -- wait, is that available blocker card A or card B with similar colors in the art?
