comment How Specific Does Card Naming Have to Be
What about "That blue card with the picture of an elf-man with a glowing hand"?

comment Games that have no element of luck.
@Erik Imagine a computer which plays optimally always, and gets to choose which side to play. Is it possible to beat it? If the game we're playing is chess, or go, or some other perfect-information game, the answer is no, because there is no luck involved. In Stratego, the answer is yes - by trying different strategies, you will eventually beat it. It has nothing to do with "psychology" (we're playing a computer); it's just luck.

comment How much time do I get to read a card before I counter it?
In the PC game, you only get about 2 seconds to counter a spell, so he might have confused that for an official rule. However, even in the PC game, you can pause the timer if you need time to read the card.

comment How can I learn to play chess blindfold?
Do lots and lots and lots of chess problems :) Not only is this the fastest way to get better, but as you get to more and more difficult problems, you'll have to keep track of more and more moves in your head. Besides that, play lots of games - after so many hundred games, you get used to knowing where each of the pieces commonly moves to, and what squares it attacks from there, without even having to think about it.

comment What is the best way to learn chess strategy and tactics?
Also the tutorials in Chessmaster (which is available for Mac also) are really good - that's how I started learning however many years ago. Finally, I can't recommend chesstempo.com highly enough.

comment What is the best way to learn chess strategy and tactics?
See How important is memorizing chess openings in casual play? and What are good resources or techniques to improve one's offence or finishing game?. Different questions, but with pretty much the same answer.
