comment Dictionary for Scrabble that doesn't contain ridiculous words
I think it's more the way knowing all the specifically two letter words facilitates playing words "in parallel" and how much that amplifies your scoring, that rubs the less competitive player the wrong way, than a notion that 'EE' is more or less "absurd" than 'EEN' :)

comment How is Words With Friends different from Scrabble?
One also wonders if WWF-the-board-game is to be played with the online version's somewhat aggressive naughty-words filter, or if the full dictionary is in effect :)

comment Does Doubling Season affect planeswalkers?
Activating an ability that has a cost of add counters will not add double counters. Paying a cost is not an 'effect.'

comment 40K Orks: what is the tactical value of having Mekboys in a mob of Lootas?
There's also now with the new wound allocation rules some value in having a bullet sponge that you can stick out front of units.

comment Creating small flat bottom holes in plastic models for magnets
Oh also, protip, for vehicles and other places where it's possible, I put the magnet on the inside (sometimes still drilling a bit so the palstic is thinner and it holds better) so that when a weapon is on the magnets are pulling each other into the glue joint instead of trying to rip each other out of it.

comment How to counter an aggro deck with massive +1/+1 counter packing
Exclusion ritual and rain of thorns are useless in this context. A red/black vampires deck will have killed you several turns before you have the 6 mana to cast either of those spells. Cloudshift is odd, when the only thing in your deck that has triggers to cloudshift is two Acidic Slimes.
