(update) - I'm having a board game published! We'd appreciate your support on Facebook or on Twitter, as we prepare for a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014.


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

comment Is there an in-game mechanic reason for placing action cards face down during the planning phase
@Ramiro: Sure, but you can quickly check. For others to check, they have to communicate to you what they would like checked!

comment Why is card counting considered illegal in Blackjack?
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!

comment Soviet space exploration board game (now with pictures)
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 :)

comment Where can I find a list of all the cards in Elder Sign?
Why don't you just look at the cards next time you're setting up the game??

comment Do you need a program to make a run in Netrunner?
If the top of R&D is a piece of ice, then four runs on turn 1 isn't going to do much!

A straightforward reading of the rules suggests this, and it is confirmed in the FAQ I linked above.

comment How can I get better at lying?
Re: the social contract - if you aren't playing, say, The Resistance to win that game of Resistance, then I don't want to play with you. Even if you're on the other team... it's not cool to establish some sort of meta-game at the expense of your teammates' ability to win a particular iteration of the game.

Sorry - it's been so long, and I've only played each side once!
