comment Reaction cards in response to reaction cards
@shujaa I think the main benefit of thinking of it as nesting rather than purely sequential could be illustrated by the same example, but with two market squares in hand. To use both of those market squares in reaction to trashing the same card, you either have to think of it as a branching structure (I play the two market squares at once, then sequentially resolve them one at a time) or a nesting structure ("start silver trashed event" "start playing market square" "resolve market square" "start playing market square" "resolve market square" "end silver trashed event").

comment Is a robber laid a robber played?
In general, the times people will insist mistakes like this are final will be when they're desperate for the win, and see the mistake as an opportunity. Nothing about the game has changed since the robber roll was made - no trading, rolling, new turns, etc, so there's no reason (in a simple and clear case like this one) not to allow a redo.

comment How much strategic depth is there in Quarriors?
Advanced variant is the only way to go. 2 buys, and give up creatures to score them. This makes long-term engine decks viable, and multiple cheaper purchases work. Otherwise creatures decide the game entirely.

comment Countermeasures to “analysis paralysis”?
This is how we play - no moves are permanent until there's been some change in information: as long as you haven't yet rolled a die, drawn a card, or asked if a player's going to react to a situation, it's fine, and it means you can do the moves as you go. For example, when expanding in Risk, people can just put one troop in each territory to get a feel for how far they're going, and then they arrange the unplaced troops before starting their conquest.

Apostrophe broke the MTG autocard, link added manually

comment Infractions/Player Communication - Infernal Tutor and Lion's Eye Diamond
Using [mtg:Lion's Eye Diamond] breaks the search because it loses the apostrophe. Either the wrong name (Lion Eye Diamond) has to be used, or a manual link, which functions differently to the autocard links. I've currently opted for the wrong name, shortly followed by the non-autocard correct name.

comment What are the differences between combat damage, direct damage, and loss of life?
Yeah, I was just trying to point out that the concept of "combat damage" is even more nuanced than the wording suggested :)

comment What are the differences between combat damage, direct damage, and loss of life?
"So damage from creatures during combat is combat damage" isn't really true - combat damage is specifically the damage attacking and blocking creatures do during combat because they have a power. For example, "when creature becomes blocked, it deals 1 damage to the controller of the blocking creature" wouldn't be combat damage, but if it had trample, the trample damage spilling onto the player would be.
