comment Is kingmaking in multiplayer games a problem that can be fixed?
That's how Puzzle Strike handles multiplayer as well.

Don't forget that you can cut support for attacking X if you successfully dislodge Y.

comment What are a blackjack dealer's options?
Playing with a dealer that has the same options as players would seem to be to be so different from normal blackjack that you couldn't even compare the two. The majority of blackjack strategy is based on decisions based on being able to see 1 (and only 1) of the dealer's cards, and the rules they have to follow.

comment 1-on-1 unorganized tournament scoring system
How many games do you expect to have in the "tournament"? Sounds like you just need basic ELO ranking, but I don't think it's going to work so well on such a small sample size.

comment Can people win at Diplomacy using a “Qin strategy?”
This doesn't really seem to address the question at all. If you're saying that the question can't be answered, that probably makes more sense as a comment.

comment Overcall of 3S over 1C opening, what does it show? (assuming bidding system SAYC)
This question isn't going to be answerable unless you give more details about the bidding system that you were using.

comment How does a firefighter “recover” after being knocked down?
Ah, looks like I was accidentally reading the Family Rules version of Knocked Down. Definitely clear, though it still seems like a pretty light penalty (that might even help in some cases).

comment When should Italy NOT take over Tunisia on its second turn in Diplomacy?
I agree that the reason to not take it is because you're taking something else. I don't necessarily agree that not taking Tunis as a 5th is advisable, everyone is going to assume it is yours and assess you as such anyway. Unless you're playing with inexperienced players that just count pieces on the board, I'd still grab it as a 5th in 1901 if I could.

comment Improved wording for dealing out cards
Or, depending on whether the number of cards can change and how much the number of players can vary, you might just want to make it explicit. "For 2 players, give each player 12 cards. For 3 players, give each player 8 cards." etc
