I'm not sure I agree with you, but an upvote for a very interesting answer.

comment Do you still pay 10x the dice when getting the chance card that takes you to the nearest utility if the property is mortgaged?
You may be right that this is a good interpretation of the way the rules actually read. I'm not sure that this is what it should read; it seems to go against the "spirit" of the game.

comment What are bidding sequences in which the responder is likely to be the “captain” of the partnership?
Are you referring to the fact that slams can sometimes be made with 21 hcps (or less) if you have the appropriate double fits and shortness, while the same 21 hcps are only good for a part score if you don't have these fits (or don't know that you have them)?

Accepted for splinter raises and fourth suit forcing.

comment Settlers Of Catan 5-6 Expansion
I tried to make the question clearer by asking if the 5-6 player version was "playable" for four people.

comment In Diplomacy, will I be “cornered” as Turkey if I don't use the “juggernaut” opening?
Wow! Good exposition for Turkey. Never realized that the country had it so good.

Accepted for your improved answer, and for helping me to improve the question.

comment How does one evaluate a hand responding to a “strong” two clubs?
@PieterGeerkens: I have rephrased the question to the best of my ability regarding "captaincy."

comment How does one evaluate a hand responding to a “strong” two clubs?
I'm sorry if I confused you by "implying" that under the "key card system, the opener is usually the captain. That was not my intent. To that extent, the analogy with Blackwood does not completely hold.

comment How does one evaluate a hand responding to a “strong” two clubs?
In your answer below, you said that I (the responder) would become "captain" after the opener's second bid. This means that after opener rebids, e.g. "two spades," it's my prerogative to decide whether or not spades are trump. Why can't I use a "key card system to make that decision."

comment How to take advantage of Japanese Anti-American strategy
I think I know you from another site.You might study the real World War II for tips. (America didn't invade the eastern hemisphere until it had won the battle of Midway,) Or see my answer below.

comment How to make custom Cards Against Humanity Cards?
@IlmariKaronen: In the United States, it is not illegal to "disturb" (e.g. to wake or annoy) children, but it is illegal to "molest" them (as the term is generally understood).

comment How to make custom Cards Against Humanity Cards?
I substituted "disturb" for "molest," which is a bad word in English.

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?

comment How should I modify Risk to play with 7 persons
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.
