comment Triggering “On Cast” Effects When Sacrificing
It was in Magic 2015, which has otherwise (in my experience) done a surprisingly good job of sticking to the rules, so I wasn't sure if I misunderstood.

comment Does Humility affect the graveyard?
If Brightsteel is in play with Humility and dies, at what point does the card regain its ability? Would it go into the graveyard?

comment Can I get an enters-the-battlefield effect out of a second legendary before I must sacrifice it?
So to be clear, one of the legendaries is discarded immediately when checking state-based actions after the abilities go on the stack but before they resolve?

comment Is “refund with discount” a valid move on Catan?
Except by the rules, you're not giving away anything for free in any single trade, which is what the rules apply to. When agreeing to a deal, players must stick to the terms for that trade. However, players can make long-term, complex agreements, but only the current trade is enforceable by the rules. As such you run the risk of a player turning you down. The specific question in your group to ask is if someone's kingmaking someone else arbitrarily.

comment Which of two conflicting abilities takes precedence?
Sure thing! This is the best answer I can give from the logic on the current rules, but of course something like this could do with a ruling, and that's that! :) The main change I think is feasible is that they note that multiple separate effects (e.g. looking at the Runner's grip/choosing a card) on a same card can be considered separately when deciding if a card is resolvable or not.

comment Which of two conflicting abilities takes precedence?
In looking at the FAQ I noticed that "A player cannot trigger an action/ability unless he is also able to resolve it." I'm leaning towards thinking this means the Corp can't look at the Runner's grip on the Runner's turn.

comment Which of two conflicting abilities takes precedence?
@Zags Interesting question. We know by example that identities can have constant (Harmony Medtech), paid (Jinteki Biotech) and conditional (Exile) abilities. Chronos Protocol doesn't passively modify any properties or do anything constantly; it makes something happen when a certain condition is met, so I read that as a triggered ability. Later text explains that conditional abilities commonly use "when", but not that they must use "when". A conditional triggered ability simply needs a distinct, identifiable condition. It would be nice if cards explicitly identified their abilities, though!

comment Technically highest 7Wonders score
Or a 3 player game so that cards cycle faster. Science is probably the way to go, with science-based leaders (probably extra symbols), and with Mannekin Pis to the right of the Great Wall so you can double build the spy wonder stage. Babylon (A) to the right for the bonus science symbol. Neighbours build resources and enough science to steal while feeding gold into the main player.

comment Zombies/Robots, Can you combine they're coming to get you and zapbot?
Also Zombies/Robots is so obscenely powerful anyway :P We had to ban it in our group after 3 players working together couldn't stop the Zombot player over the whole game.
