comment Bet process when 2 players and Big blind is all in on the Pre-Flop
@FelipeZuleta In response to your comments, a player who has bet all-in takes no further action. If all but one of the players in a pot are all-in and betting has resolved, all players reveal their hands and the remaining cards are played out.

comment Who gets to “search target player's graveyard, hand, and library?”
Even worse, if the opponent was doing the searching they could elect not to find the named card, even if it's there!

@ConMan Right you are, though I just have bunnies turn around and keep playing until we call for a stop :)

comment How to balance Dixit?
I recommend Dixit Odyssey, which includes its own set of cards (compatible with the original), takes up to 12 players (adding an extra vote per player at 7+), replaces voting tokens with an easier-to-use voting card, and includes a scoreboard that's easy to read and has numbered spaces for cards in a round. Also the bunny figures are wider and fall down less easily :)

comment If I lose my central tile, do I lose the round?
There's a fourth case too; if you get lapped in the flight order. :)

comment How is 'The Homeworld' played correctly?
@ikegami You're not wrong that it's incredibly powerful for robots, but it's actually an alien faction base!

comment How is 'The Homeworld' played correctly?
Each minion you play on the Homeworld gives you an extra <=2 power minion play that turn, which doesn't have to be on the Homeworld as well. If it is, you get another one.

comment How is 'The Homeworld' played correctly?
@Mnementh It's situationally powerful, but a stack of low-powered minions are a tasty target for a few different decks, and can be taken advantage of by opponents in a variety of ways.

comment In Monopoly, Is it OK for a third party to make a trade with a player who is about to lose?
@mattdm Yes, the rules of Monopoly are the what makes Monopoly drag on. It's almost as if the game is seriously flawed in terms of game design! :P

comment When is it ok to king-make?
While I agree that king-making is bad in general, sometimes I think it's okay. For example, if you're coming to the end of a game and it's clear that you're way behind, I think it's acceptable to punish someone as revenge for screwing over earlier, and deny them victory. I don't agree with carrying grudges between games or king-making without a great reason, though.

comment Technically highest 7 Wonders score
I've made it work! Lots of fiddling around to make sure the money is right, but I believe I've done it. Let me know if you find a mistake in the play order, but I think it's correct.

comment Can minions have negative power?
It'd end up at 0, because the -4 modifier is still active; the minion's overall power just has a floor of 0. The minion is a 0 power minion, based on a 2-power minion with -4. When the +2 comes in, we look at the modifiers on it, and we find a 2-power minion with -4 +2, making it a 0-power minion.

comment Band of Misfits copying Feast and then Island
Also if you care about the actions in your deck, using the BoM as an Island first, then a Feast will let you keep the BoM on your island.

comment can keepers kill creepers in same turn over and over again?
Well I think your turn ends immediately after your last play (I'd need to check that), but as long as you had a spare card in hand, yes.

comment Can I resolve all special effects or just 1 at a time in turn with other players before and after bases score
I agree that they all go in one go. It says you play until you pass. If you play a special ability, you still haven't passed yet.

comment can keepers kill creepers in same turn over and over again?
I've found the text for Excalibur: "If you have this on the table, you may move one of your Creepers to another player during your turn." You can use this once per turn, since the card cares about already being on the table.

comment can keepers kill creepers in same turn over and over again?
Unfortunately I don't know the wording of the cards in this version of Fluxx. If the creeper says "if you have the XXX keeper, discard this" then it's constant (as with scurvy/oranges in Pirate Fluxx). If the keeper says "remove XXX creeper", then it's when you play the keeper, as described in this question.

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?
