comment In Smallworld, do Fortresses pay the +1 VC only on the turn they are placed, or do they each pay for every turn that the race is active?
They're increasing linearly, not exponentially. And that's only if people don't attack them.

comment Can smoke be placed on a POI?
Smoke on top of a POI can definitely happen, no special rules. The POI is not affected until the smoke turns into fire, at which point they are removed.

comment What was the largest flop in board game history?
Could you be more clear in your definition of "flop"? You cite Pacman as an example, despite the article you link saying "the game goes on to become the biggest selling Atari cartridge ever".

comment Looking for an Online Card Shuffler and Drawer
You could always just use a physical copy of the game, shuffle the cards, deal the appropriate number of hands, and then send a message to each player listing out one of the hands.

comment Has online play testing been an important part of any boardgame designs?
@rrenaud Imagine a very optimistic budget to create an online implementation of $20,000. Then imagine how many playtest sessions of the physical game that you could get for half that amount.

comment Has online play testing been an important part of any boardgame designs?
As a software developer, creating an online implementation is many orders of magnitude more difficult than getting a group of people to playtest a physical game. So you'd only do this if you wanted to release the online version simultaneously, which seems like putting the cart before the horse.

comment Are multicolor decks in any color combination viable in modern Magic?
Unless you are running a specialty deck like gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/…, you still generally want to have exactly 60 cards, because that gives you the best chance of drawing your best cards.

comment Is Dimir's milling strategy viable in Gatecrash sealed deck? If not, what can they do instead?
Since the pre-release was a one time thing, should we change this to say Draft instead?
