comment Most important buildings in 3 player Machi Koro
2 of the three buildings you mention are expansion buildings, which the question doesn't seem to be including.

comment Most important buildings in 3 player Machi Koro
I think the expected return rate has too many unknowns. The return rate on reds depends on whether other players have money when they roll that number. You also have to take into account the potential of building stealing, synergies such as the shopping mall, roll diversity, etc.

comment Scoring Bases in Smash Up
What was the action he played that blocked the base from scoring? If it was something that just changed the power present at the base, this would NOT stop scoring.

comment Can the Resistance Fighters use the fail card?
@User They did state it like that. You are literally the only person I have ever met that reads "must" in a rules document as optional.

comment Can the Resistance Fighters use the fail card?
If they meant "should" they would say "should". "Must" in a rules document is clearly compulsory. If you want to debate that, I'd suggest taking it to the English Language site.

comment Can the Resistance Fighters use the fail card?
You could imagine someone thinking "X is on this mission, and I'm sure he's a spy. By playing the fail card, I will make it more likely that other people think that he is a spy too." It isn't a good strategy, which is probably part of the reason the rules explicitly disallow it.

comment Pandemic on the Brink expansion in different language than the main game
Yes, but since On the Brink adds a small number of cards to the existing decks, it is important to gameplay that the backs of the cards match so that you can't tell when one of the new cards is coming up.

Make sure you get either the new or old version of On the Brink based on what version of the base Pandemic you have. Otherwise the card backs won't match.

comment I missed scoring a base
I can think of all sorts of cases where not scoring a base immediately on your turn could be a benefit. Drawing special effects, allowing other players to take down the leader more, preventing a chain reaction that could let other players score a different base, etc. The point is that it isn't intended to be a strategic decision whether you want to score a base. If it can happen, it must happen. Mistakes have to be retconned in the most reasonable way possible.

comment In Pandemic, at the end of your turn can you discard even when you have fewer than 7 cards, so the Archivist can pick up that card on his next turn?
Playing is different from discarding, and is useless for the Archivist scenario that is clearly the OP's focus.

This doesn't seem to answer the question at all. It isn't about action limits or getting under the hand limit, it is specifically about voluntarily discarding city cards.

comment Accessible (and educational) deck building game for second grade primary school child?
You don't have any downvotes. You do however have close votes, because this is a game recommendation question which are not allowed on the site. See the FAQ page about "What kinds of questions should I ask".

comment Can Fog Bank be killed by combat damage?
I don't think the asker was looking for crazy combos that would make it possible. They were just wondering how to resolve their specific scenario.

comment Can Pandemic Legacy be played as “vanilla” Pandemic?
Out of the box I believe you'll have fewer character choices than base Pandemic, and there are more connections between cities than the standard Pandemic board has. The special event cards available are slightly different, and you'll have to decide how many to use (I'd suggest On the Brink's two per player). There are only 5 epidemic cards, so you can't choose to play with 6.

Trying to avoid spoilers, but there are certain things in the game that are more difficult to reverse, at least if you follow the instructions literally.

comment Can I attack a player directly if they still have a flying defender?
MUST is too strong. Not attacking at all is a perfectly legal option. The existing answers covered the situation well, where your new one just adds confusion.

comment Inherited thousands of Magic Cards
Do you know what time frame the cards are from? Newer cards have some clear indications of what cards might be valuable, but older cards do not. Generally you can look at the bottom of the card and find a copyright year to give you an idea of how old the card is.

comment Are there quasi “official” rankings of board games?
I still think it is a bad question. "Authoritative" is too nebulous, and the question boils down to a recommendation question (of recommendations no less).
