(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 What should you do when someone mistakenly builds the same building twice?
This can happen in Castles of Burgundy as well. There doesn't seem to be a clear-cut answer to the CoB situation, as some buildings have immediate, "Extra action"-esque effects, while other building have game end bonuses.

comment Can I decide not to use all the power of a plant in Power Grid?
Oooh. I see. You can hold double, and effectively keep double out of the market by burning some and storing some.

The behavior in the second paragraph still seems illogical. Couldn't you just hold onto the resources? Spending them will put them back in the pool for possible resupply...

comment Can I decide not to use all the power of a plant in Power Grid?
Two things are clear: the rules don't explicitly mention the possibility in question; the possibility in question is tantamount to returning money to the bank - in this case, 32 electro. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!?!?

They have added the specific case mention in the OP: catan.com/faq/2-catan-boardgame/…

comment When I put the robber on someone in Settlers of Catan, does the resource I take HAVE to be random?
@mafutrct: I have known players to hide a card(s) horizontally behind their other cards while being robbed. Best to have them all laid facedown and a random number generator consulted : )

comment Is it legal to buy property for $1 in Monopoly when other players are in prison?
That's interesting... So the game (board, pieces, money, etc) was entirely a "knockoff"??

comment Is it possible to play 2-player, 2-character Arkham Horror successfully?

comment Is there any reason to buy the Ascension base game?
All the Mechana constructs are 1:1 (cost:VP), though, aren't they? Maybe it's just a preference. I've gotten to the point where I own 40+ constructs, with infinite turns. In this context, the BMII is barely on the radar :)
