I hereby commit to contributing to this site without any rudeness, sarcasm, accusation, or any other unloving speech.

second, you honestly suspect that players would intentionally cheat to win this tournament (even going as far as doing a cost-benefit analysis of various ways to cheat)?!? And the prize is - what - picking what games to play? This sounds like the worst game group ever.

comment Can a solo game be converted into a cooperative game (and vice versa)?
@Pow-Ian: I appreciate that this is a challenging question (or two challenging, related questions).

This isn't a persuasive piece, but rather an investigation.

This is probably a silly question (and I realize that I'm a year late to the party!)... but where are these numbers coming from? Somehow, I have come to believe that the house edge is like 4-5%, which is obviously way different than what you two are saying!

Any update on the BGG submission? It took a couple of days for my game to be approved, and it's a modern/English game!

comment Are there similar games to “Love Letter”?
@Justin808: I understand where you're coming from. As a player, designer, and reviewer of board games, I rarely find occasion to contribute anything to this site. It doesn't upset me, but I guess part of me wishes I had more of a reason to come here :)

Why don't you just look at the cards next time you're setting up the game??

If the top of R&D is a piece of ice, then four runs on turn 1 isn't going to do much!
