(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 In Puerto Rico, how do you avoid “losing a game after having the most victory points?”
Have you played Puerto Rico before?? It's not a race to X points; it's a race to get the most points before the game ends. And as hymie has mentioned, the game end can be triggered in three ways. Sometimes these all happend within the same round.

This is a great strategy primer.

comment How can I speed up the setup of Eclipse?
I had my friends text me their colors for the first game, and setup their pieces ahead of time. Sure, the races are asymmetrical, but we all learned together so it wasn't a huge deal.

comment Discarding a card in Phase 10 that allows the next player to go out
The bias against the perceived victim should be totally acceptable for anyone wanting to behead their opponents, in the order of the threat they pose.

comment Improved wording for dealing out cards
@Tim: Keep up the good work! I never really knew the difference, until your comment prompted me to look it up.

comment How can I balance mandatory quests in two-player games of Lords of Waterdeep?
4. should be "you can play a Mandatory Quest (at Waterdeep Harbor) to cancel both one you have in hand and the one you just played". I.e. if each player has a MQ in play, they each discard a MQ.

comment When should you not place the robber to do the most damage in Settlers of Catan?
I'd say it's more diplomatic than political, but the point is the same I guess.

comment Can you use Throne Room to Mine a Copper to a Gold?
You can go from Copper to Silver (or Loan, or some other $3 treasure), and then from this newly gained Silver/Loan etc. (or any other treasure in your hand that costs $3+) to go to a Gold.

comment Can a runner trash ICE or Operation cards after a run on the HQ?
Of course, there are some cards that let the runner trash accessed cards "even if they wouldn't normally be able to" (paraphrased)...

comment What should I be trying to do strategically in Through the Ages?
(By the way, I'm "The Chaz" on boardgaming-online if anyone wants to add me to a TtA game.)

comment What should I be trying to do strategically in Through the Ages?
One tip that I give to new players is to "focus on your weakness" (in the areas of happiness, pop/crops, science, military, resources, culture, and government. Might have missed one, but you get the point!)
