comment In Catan, how to ensure nobody lies when monopoly card is played?
We don't know whether anyone's cheating, we know someone suspects somebody else is cheating. How far is that worth disrupting everybody's game?

comment Problem with lifelines in “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” board game
The assumption that 'Ask the Audience' should give what the players/studio audience actually believe to be correct is unfounded. In some countries, (like Russia, as I heard it), some of the audience deliberately try to sabotage the contestant, adding another factor your strategy has to consider.

comment In Bridge, what is the punishment for misclaiming tricks?
@Pieter: Certainly a claim may include taking a finesse (as I mentioned). But LHO showing out after the claim is made is the very situation where you are not allowed to decide whether or not to finesse. Bear in mind also that this is rubber bridge (and may or may not be in the US), so the ACBL has nothing to say to it.

comment duplicate bridge revoke not agreed upon
What he 'would have made if he had played correctly' is a red herring. If he revoked, there is a penalty, as set out in the rules: if he did not, there is none.

comment Two players have a straight to the 8
Surely if you had a 9 (and 10) you would win the hand? But +1 for a clear answer.
