comment Can the Russia no first turn attack rule be realistically extended for more turns?
@ScottMitchell: Yes. That's a viable strategy for Russia, to provoke an Axis attack. A variation is that the wire is tripped if the Russian unit is eliminated (last), meaning that the Axis can "strafe," but not capture. As a practical matter, the restriction might be removed after say, the fifth round.

comment How should I modify Risk to play with 7 persons
@AndrewVandever: Interesting link. I followed up by asking what ratios and parameters were common in more "playable" games. They could be used as a "benchmark" for your version.So perhaps this addition makes the question "less" off topic?

I agree with the two commenters just above, and voted to reopen. I've also edited the question a bit.

comment Is there a “consensus” definition of what constitutes a “strong” or “weak” deck?
@Rainbolt: I got "caught" on my weakest topic on the site, not realizing that normally neutral English words like strong and weak could be opinion-based regarding MTG; it was meant as a definition question. Your point about the other site has merit. I did not know of that one, only this one.

comment In Axis and Allies, how do you choose which player plays which country?
The question is NOT "how should you choose which player plays which country," which is subjective. It is "how DO you choose..." Some people have dealt with this in their own games, and I am primarily interested in what they DID. That calls for an "experienced" fact-based answer.

comment What is a winning strategy for Italy with Diplomacy
@PieterGeerkens: I think I saw this comment on another one of my posts, and my recollection was that of congratulating you for a brilliant result (under the circumstances).

comment Is there a “consensus” definition of what constitutes a “strong” or “weak” deck?
@Rainbolt: I edited the title to ask if there was a "consensus" definition as to what constitutes a strong or weak deck. It is now a "yes-no" question that can be answered objectively.

comment Is there a “consensus” definition of what constitutes a “strong” or “weak” deck?
@Rainbolt: In plain English, strong means something like "more," and weak means something like "less." In that context, the difference is totally objective. I was confused by the terms as used in other MTG posts, and the gist of the question is why don't the two terms "map" as conveniently in MTG as they do in plain English. So how do they "map?" And an answer like Alex P's comment, "Strong" and "weak" is context-sensitive language rather than pure jargon" is an acceptable answer. But I'd like to be able to ask a question to find that out.

comment Is there a “consensus” definition of what constitutes a “strong” or “weak” deck?
I have made the question clearer, and hopefully more objective, by asking for the meaning of the terms on a comparative basis, and was wondering if it can be re-opened in its current form.
