comment When Governor and Alchemy cards are in same game, how does gaining a card for trashed card work?
(...continued) from rulebook: "If a player uses Remodel to trash a card costing 2p, he could gain a card costing 4p or 4 as those are both 'up to' 4p."

comment When Governor and Alchemy cards are in same game, how does gaining a card for trashed card work?
@scenia My answer is correct. The OP's question quotes both Remodel ("up to") and Governor ("exactly") cards. The Dominion Alchemy Rules at the top of page 4 walk through a Remodel example: (continued...)

comment Unsporting trades in the end-game of settlers of Catan
I personally think that, if I'm not winning a game, the ability to influence who does win helps a lot to keep the end of the game interesting. Though I usually do it while still trying to maximize my position at the end.

Not sure whether to mark this as a duplicate or not, but Is Kingmaking a Fixable Problem is definitely related.

comment Dominion: When to use Platinum and Colony
It is interesting when Gold-goal cards make quickly ending a Colony-game on Provinces viable.

comment Is it possible for players to gain an advantage from colluding in blackjack?
This sounds really interesting, would you mind explaining a bit more? It's pretty jargon-y as is and I don't know enough to understand it.

comment How to make custom Cards Against Humanity Cards?
I think this will be very difficult or impossible to mix print-and-play with the official version. However, you could go all print-and-play, printing a base set as well as whatever blank cards you'd like.

comment Recommendations for a wife who likes dominion
For recommendations, try posting to the boardgames subreddit or a forum at Board Game Geek. You'll get much better help if you can identify what game elements she likes and doesn't. You said not too strategic, maybe with a good bit of chance, which is a good start. We can, e.g., rule out most worker placement games. But what doesn't she like about Carcassonne? If you can identify that, you'll get much better help.

comment Is Mana Weaving ok if it's followed by a thorough shuffle?
@BrianS Didn't go back to the paper, but recalling a Diaconis lecture I attended, this assumes a near-perfect but not-quite-perfect riffle shuffle. With a 52-card deck, as Diaconis demonstrated, 7 perfect riffle shuffles will exactly reset the deck. Small deviations from perfect shuffles, however, will propagate through the deck in unpredictable ways--which is what you want.

comment Are cards of the same “rarity level” really equally rare in MTG?
In your first sentence, don't you mean "pretty much equally common (or rare) as a card at the same level"?

Gatherer's advanced search is a good way to look for cards, e.g. like this

comment Where can I play magic in Berlin?
@Pablo Well, let's just go with "this question should be edited to be more general, because general solutions exist and would probably be helpful to a lot more people". I'd much prefer to see edits than to place it on hold.

comment Where can I play magic in Berlin?
This question is too localized as is, and will probably be closed unless edited. If you change it to something more general, like "How can I find a local group to play Magic the Gathering with?" it would be much better.

comment Why would you want to play with a deck bigger than 60 cards in MTG?
There's no land limit, so really only the percent of lands in a deck alters your chance of getting lands, the total number of cards doesn't matter.

comment Should I trash Copper or Silver with Mine?
Hating copper isn't a good justification for a strategy. I understand the copper-hate, but this answer doesn't give any objective reasons to prefer one strategy to another.

comment Should I buy 2 core sets of Star Wars: the card game LCG right from the start?
Hi and welcome. I think this question is a bit too opinion-based for our format. You can clearly go either way, and no one can definitively tell you which way you'll like more. You might be able to turn this into a good question for this site by giving some objective criteria and asking about that, but otherwise you'd probably get better responses on a forum, maybe BGG.

comment Do I have to sacrifice non-token dragons to Day of the Dragons?
Yup, that's what I was trying to get at with "regardless of where they came from". Similarly, you would sacrifice any Dragon tokens under your control created by any other spells/abilities.

Great! Unfortunately, we're limited to numbers less than 10, at least for now.
