comment Where can I practice MTG draft online and actually play against my opponents for free?
@StevenStadnicki Not that I'm offended, but I don't think the word "pirate" really applies to the draft any more than it does any other form of unofficial online play.

comment How do you pronounce “Hacan” in Twilight Imperium?
Also an option based on some Eastern European languages it could be Ha-chan (properly written Hačan).

comment Can monsters use items with Cheat?
Cheat simply avoids an item's normal requirements (specific attribute/required hands/size) that would prevent you from using it. It doesn't change any other game rules.

comment Brain transference in Star Fluxx
In my mind, the way to clarify this card is to look at it as a whole. Pretend that you swapped your mind into your opponent's body, and your opponent's mind into yours.

comment Clarification of creature's subtype for card effects
Note that this can go both ways - a card could specify that "Human Soldier creatures you control get +1/+1", which would specifically require that the creature be both a Human and a Soldier.

comment Is there a set of better rules for Monopoly?
House rules definitely make the game worse, but the official rules for Monopoly still lead to a quick-to-unbalance, slow-to-finish game with a largely static strategy. It's not only bad because of house rules.

comment What cards use coin tokens?
The "coin tokens" used for pirate ship and trade route aren't coin tokens in the way that Guilds uses them; they're arbitrary tracking markers.

comment How are creature token cards used?
I think your last point (What about those cards that come with booster packs that look kinda like real cards?) greatly clears up what could be a source of confusion for new players.

comment How are creature token cards used?
I suspect the situation involved either using token cards as cards in a deck, or in trying to play tokens because they were [physically] available. I've edited the question to reflect this and voted to reopen.

comment How do we assign Game of Thrones seating positions?
I don't fully remember how it plays, but does seating position actually matter? I thought turns/actions were taken based on one of the priority tracks rather than position around a table. Or did you just mean assigning Houses at the start?

comment Can Ice Witches use Winter markers on the turn they were earned?
I've been thinking about how to deal with this answer for a little bit because the discussion is between a couple of people rather than a general consensus. However, I think it is a worthwhile contribution to the context of the question as a whole. I think it deserves a +1 for that but I'll leave it unaccepted for the time being.

comment What happens when a player controls multiple identical monsters?
Thanks for the answer, but this situation applies when drawing new monsters. Sometimes the games instructs players to pass monster cards. Does anything in the rules cover/forbid this for duplicates?

comment Do you need to show what you draw?
@ghoppe Most people won't be paying super close attention, and you could play it off as going for your defuse. It might be a bit obvious but still, if someone really wanted to cheat at the game (which is dumb :P ) they could do it and people probably wouldn't call them out if they said it was what they drew.

comment How many cards can I access in R&D / HQ?
Not a problem with the question, but imagine if you could access as much as you wanted in R&D! Instant win if they're not running all their ice on it immediately or have a trap deck!

I much prefer the 60-90 minute version, but I still include your last step ;)

comment How to combine Risk, Catan, and Monopoly?
You can combine them by putting all of the pieces together in a large plastic bag and then throwing it away.

comment Gin Rummy Card Game
Agree with casual play. I'd only enforce this rule if I'd shown them my hand already because of their call, but if they often made mistakes I'd be more careful about checking their hand before showing mine.

comment Does a game exist where some win, some lose, and some don't?
@Affe Not if you use enough Rough Road cards!

comment What Betrayal at House on the Hill scenarios can work with just two players
This would work - you just skip any haunts that have a hidden traitor or similar.
