comment how to find that 8 number puzzle is solvable or not?
The mathematics is studied using Permutation Groups. Essentially all boards can be solved to either the correct solution, or the pseudo-solution with the 7 and the 8 swapped. An algorithm to generate valid boards might start by applying 1,000s of swaps randomly to a board that is known to be valid.

comment Must a caught novice walk back to her cell even when passing out of sight?
Our group allows the novice to choose. If she stays 'caught', her token stays on the board even when she passes through a doorway but the head nun can't re-catch her and she automatically passes her noise checks.

It is independent so they are always the same!

comment Is there much strategy and planning in 7-Wonders or is mostly luck?
The simplest, but ridiculously effective, starting strategy for 3-5 players is Reds and Blues.

comment Why would you want to play with a deck bigger than 60 cards in MTG?
Deck-building, like writing, is all about the editting.

comment How To Trap Meeples In 2-Player Carcassonne?
It can be nearly as effective to join their castles and roads as it is to cripple them. That way the only advantage to completing a project is to get your meeps back. The XBLA game doesn't really last long enough for you to lock away all of their meeple in traps, even with the DLC.
