comment What is your average VP score rolling 2 versus 4 dice after an initial 3322xx roll?
Nice. Rerolling everything but 3s is also better from a non-VP view, as those 2s are completely worthless if you don't match them, but things like energy and hits might be worthwhile. Unless of course you are trying to avoid hitting.

Does strat 2 have an issue on roll 2 if you rolled two 1s? So if you end up with 332211 is it just keeping that? Probably won't make much of a difference, but worth correcting. Also, for strat 3 if you don't end up with either set, shouldn't you default back to strat 1, which has a better 1 roll expected value?

Your expected value for 2 dice still seems wrong. The values for both the 1/36 cases are off.

I think you double-counted the one 3 and one 2 scenarios. It should be chance of rolling one 3 and one that isn't a 2 or 3 to avoid that, making them 8/36 instead.

Only? I don't even think this would make my top 10 of family games with a geeky theme.

comment How to play the intro of Legends of Andor with two players?
Which characters were you using? The exact moves will vary based on that. I can try to figure them out for you if you want, though I don't actually own the game.

comment Does the starting world dictate your strategy in Race for the Galaxy?
@Jonathan I feel like this question is sufficiently narrow. It isn't asking for strategies for the whole game, it is asking specifically whether you need to base your strategy off your starting world.

When you say you locally infected 3 times, was that on three different turns? That action should only be able to be performed once per turn. It would be surprising to broadcast your location like that and not have someone try to capture you.

comment Can resources in Alexandria's side A second wonder be bought by other players?
@Tynam Many rules questions can be answered by finding the right place in the rules, but that doesn't mean that they should be closed. "General Reference" is a close reason that is used very rarely, as it should be.

comment What happens if a wizard uses a spell against a monster that is immune to it?
Its a PDF, so it probably won't work on phones and such. Sorry, I don't know of a better location to link to the rules. I got it from boardgamegeek.com/filepage/3102/new-dungeon-rules-pdf
