comment What is a Gateway Game?
Don't move the goal posts arbitrarily. Better make it a separate question. Also, we usually don't do lists here, as they can typically not be complete, and with not totally clear-cut questions like this, there will be lots of debate whether this or that game belongs on the list or not.

comment Can I Birthing Pod a token to get a creature with a CMC of 1?
Little nitpick: the absence of a value usually does usually imply that it's zero, if it's needed in a calculation: 107.2. If anything needs to use a number that can’t be determined, either as a result or in a calculation, it uses 0 instead. When in doubt, the comp rules tend to repeat themselves just to err on the safe side, so it's no wonder that they explicitly spell out 202.3a when 107.2 would technically suffice.

@GregDemetrick True, and I guess that's implicitly stated by "good for mixed age groups", i.e. both young and old.

comment Maximum attainable points for a single player in a two player game of Carcassonne
The points will not be the same, because many small towns count more for a farm. Also, one town can count for several farms, so that is good for the score as well. So, which number and arrangement of towns makes the optimal number and size of farms? And what about roads, cloisters?

@rahzark That's the question though, isn't it? Is one big city really optimal, since it only counts as 1 town for your farms? Is it not better to have multiple farms, each adjacent to many small towns? Also for roads: with 3 tiles, you can make 1 road of length 3, or 2 roads of length 2 each. You see, there are many different ways to do things, and without a computer, you will have a hard time deciding which matters most.
