comment civ 2 tech writing
Where is the 2 in the title of the question coming from? There are a lot of Civilization board games, but I'm not aware of any that are referred to as "Civ 2".

comment What happens if you submit orders for another player?
The "Flying Dutchman" did not involve entering orders for someone else's units. It involved using an extra piece that you were not entitled to, often by executing an extra build or neglecting to execute a removal due to a lost center. Separately, he talks about writing orders for a country and removing their actual order set. But I would still consider this to be allowed only if your gaming group has specifically said it is OK.

Yah, I'd say this falls outside the rules. Submitting two sets of orders for yourself (with one labelled that it supersedes the other) is generally considered acceptable however.

comment Removing the Luck from Stone Age
The first modification described on that BGG link is somebody trying to "fix" the fact that they read the rules wrong.

comment Old WW2 game played with cards instead of a board
That Kickstarter may or may not happen. I think there are still (multiple?) lawsuits pending.

comment Why do dwarves only have a racial base of 3 tokens?
@deworde I think calling the Dwarves "very powerful" is a bit of an overstatement. They are pretty universally considered the weakest race.

comment Why do dwarves only have a racial base of 3 tokens?
@Jonathan There are no token modifiers of 0 in the base game. "Cursed" is a 0 from the Cursed expansion. Cursed Dwarves are a game of brinksmanship to see how high they can go before someone takes them for the free points.

comment Bizzaro Playing Cards
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a puzzle that doesn't have anything to do with an actual game. Try the Puzzling Stack Exchange.

comment Does the first piece in a standard blokus game have to have a square on a corner cell?
+1 for mentioning the different rules in the 2-player version.

comment How can I keep track of which outbreaks I've resolved?
That works until you start getting near the limit of cubes for the outbreak's color. Unfortunately, if you're chaining that many outbreaks, that is likely to occur.

comment In Pandemic: on the brink, can I remove multiple bioterrorist cubes at once for a cured strain?
This applies in On the Brink as well. Unless of course the player was the medic, in which case they would treat all the cubes without taking any actions.

comment Elimination when a player loses all herds, but still has a Chupacabra
@murgatroid Not necessarily, if someone else decides it should be something else, that's fine. I just wanted to give it an actual game tag of some sort, and figure we don't tend to care about the subtitles.

revised What's the name of the theory that the player with the most options has the advantage?
The theory isn't that they win, just that they are in a better position
