comment What is Astrochain and how does it work?
I've very commonly heard this referred to as an "Astrotrain" also.

comment Why is Femme Fatale so expensive to install?
As a general comment, Killers (i.e. Sentry breakers) are universally fairly expensive/inefficient. That's a fairly common design feature of these programs.

comment In Pathfinder ACG, what happens if I must encounter the Villain because of another effect?
That's only true at the start of the game. If you defeat the villain and he flees, he's then almost guaranteed to be in a location with another henchman.

comment Does “any” mean “all” or “one” for cards like Cheetah?
@ColinD Sure. I linked my source, which may or may not be conclusive enough for some people (if it hadn't had a comment from a supposed tester, I probably wouldn't have linked it). If another answer appears with a rulebook or FAQ quote, I highly expect it will (correctly) be voted above this answer as a more complete and conclusive answer. But if no such source exists, interpretation is all we have for now.

comment Does “any” mean “all” or “one” for cards like Cheetah?
@ColinD I agree that it can mean "all" in some English sentences, although I think it's rare to see such a phrasing to mean all in any card-game wording that I've come across (hence my second sentence, which I admit is interpretative). The fact that "any card" is singular also suggests it means "one". (If it had said "any cards", you'd have been hard-pressed to argue it meant only one.)

I've tried to rephrase it to read as a question, and hopefully kept the original request intact.

comment When can I use Cyberfeeder's recurring credit with icebreakers?
Great, as I suspected. Just wasn't sure what counted as an "ability".

comment Can Spoils be trashed by Counterfeit?
@Jeremy Sure. Playing a Spoils will return it to the pile, which means that trashing effects that happen after it's played (e.g. Counterfeit's) will "lose track" of the Spoils since it's moved from where it's expected to be. Other effects, such as Chapel which trash card(s) from your hand, can be used on Spoils, as well as attacks like Thief (which targets others' treasures) or Remodel (trash-for-benefit). Generally speaking, any trash effect that occurs without/before playing Spoils will work as expected.

comment How can I set up a game of the Resistance without anyone needing to close their eyes?
@tttppp Glad I could help; it's definitely an interesting question! My only concern with this solution is that it may be a little complex. If you're not a traitor it's fine; you just pass some cards. But if you're a traitor, you need to remember the cards that have gone past and then "translate" that into faces when you're done. It could be easy to make mistakes, especially if you're trying to look like you don't care (i.e. bluffing that you're not a traitor).

comment How can I set up a game of the Resistance without anyone needing to close their eyes?
I like the approach, but I'm not sure this solution would work in practice. The problem with having some secret code (however it's manifested) to share the information is that it would either involve too many cards so as to be impractical, or it would be learnable with enough play, unless it involved some random unique key (e.g. pick a number between 1 and whatever) for a cipher, at which point it would probably become too difficult to easily implement.

Welcome to the site and thanks for the answer! It looks like the question's asking specifically about UK strategies though. You should feel free to edit and improve upon your answer if you want to better answer the question.

comment When can I discard the Death Creeper Card?
@user1873 (And for while drawing Creepers, I'd allow the player to discard Death immediately - if it was the only one - before drawing to replace it. Again this could be open to interpretation.)

comment When can I discard the Death Creeper Card?
@user1873 I still disagree, though Fluxx doesn't really have (or want) a rigid rule structure to settle this kind of dispute. As far as I'm concerned, all rules are stated on the appropriate cards, and "anytime" suggests to me that it's not restricted to your turn but can happen at any time. My interpretation would still be as in my answer because of this wording. I've looked and haven't found any clarification either way, so I think it ultimately comes down to interpretation.

comment What are good placement strategies for Stratego?
Welcome to the site and thanks for the answer! It might be useful to provide more content to your answer than just a link. That way, if it becomes a dead link, future users will still benefit from your contribution. Feel free to modify your answer and improve it with some key content from that site.

@randomblink No worries! There are actually loads of timing-related questions like that around the game. Glad I could help and welcome to the site!
