comment How do you calculate the likelihood of drawing certain cards in your opening hand?
@DrunkCynic, yes my answer is for exactly a certain number of successes, but using that, you can calculate it for exactly 1, exactly 2, exactly 3, etc. successes and then add them all together.

comment What's the best way to teach/learn the Game of Thrones board game for people who haven't played before?
@Thunderforge, feel free to do it yourself. I don want to take the time to create a good generic answer that could be used for all games, nor a FFG GoT specific answer. If you do, I will upvote you.

comment Forbidden Island - Extending to 5 players
It will make it probably slightly harder. You now have more players that will have to move to other players locations to get 4 of the 5 treasures of each color. The difficulty increase is probably insignificant compared to he difference in playing at Legenday versus Standard difficulty, or playing some of the more elaborate island configurations.

As a rules explainer, I would suggest reading the rulebook the day before you are going to play. I would also play a fake game against yourself, playing as all players (not a complete game, but at least all the phases of the game). Finally, on the day you play, start with explaining the objective of the game. How you win, how you lose, when the game ends. Then A brief discussion of the phases of a turn, and what choices you can make during your turn (describing the bits and board and what things mean). play a couple of fake rounds so everyone understands the mechanics of the game.

Fantasy Flighthas some gameplay videos to explain the rules. They explain each phase of the game.
