comment Is there an industry standard definition between “Board”, “Card”, and “Table Top” game genres?
Then that's the question you should ask. As it is, your question asks "how we should identify our game", etc.

comment Is there an industry standard definition between “Board”, “Card”, and “Table Top” game genres?
The title asks if there are definitions to three categories, the body asks how to determine which category a certain game falls under.

Can you describe what you mean by "force co-operation by use of a soundtrack"?

comment How to take advantage of Japanese Anti-American strategy
For example, the answer to "What should the Allies do if Japan uses all their resources to invade the US?" is different from "Was it a mistake to move the US Pacific fleet to the Atlantic?".

comment How to take advantage of Japanese Anti-American strategy
This is an interesting story, but you're asking too much at once. Could you add one more line restating your one, central question?

What do you mean by "RNG"?

comment Trading in two-player games
But if there are only two players, and trading helps them both, why would they trade?

comment How do the Allies win, given that Russia is falling!
@ranger52052, this is an interesting scenario, but as it stands, it's really only useful to you. I suggest rewording it so it focuses more on the general problem other players might face, and less on the specifics of your particular experience.

comment Name of empire building game with negotiated alliances?
What do you remember about the appearance of the board? What kind of pieces did it use? Were there cards? Did the artwork look like it was from a particular era?

comment How do I promote a board game to the masses?
@JohnnyUX, this would be on topic if it's specifically about what it takes to market a boardgame, separately from marketing other products. I have some experience with that, which I'd be happy to share.

@xorsyst 1) That's still a two-player game, even though one of the players has a special title/role. 2) RPGs are out of scope for this site.

@Rainbolt, I'm assuming that the player does not have a robot capable of playing boardgames, but rather that they have just the game itself and other items you might reasonably have at home, such as a pen and paper. With that assumption, one person cannot play Hanabi.

comment What makes a cooperative game require multiple players?
@Rainbolt, did you read the answers given so far? Hanabi, for one, can't be played by one player, no matter how complex of rules they're using to simulate the other players. It requires a group of people who each don't know certain information.

@ikegami, that sounds like an answer, rather than a question. I'd give it +1.

comment What makes a cooperative game require multiple players?
@JoeW, I'm not asking what can be done to stop one player from controlling the game. I'm asking what makes it impossible for one player to play all by themselves.

comment What does “each other player” mean on Unwinding Clock?
Why would player three be the only player referred to by "each other player"?

comment What's the most intuitive way to use a die for a pass/fail test?
The chance of success in this game at a dangerous event is 50%, but the player has a great deal of choice in whether or not they have to face these events. Also, custom dice is fine, but the publisher I work with wants to stick to standard dice as a component, as they're much cheaper.

@goldPseudo, "PASS/FAIL" dice would be perfect, but yes, they'd be too expensive.

A quick Google search for "buy individual magic cards" reveals many sites.
