Indeed. Like any game published by multiple sources, rule sets vary. The good thing about Rummikub is that the game bits are always the same and you can adopt any rule set you like! I'd suggest printing out the rule set you like the most and replacing the one the game came with. 8 )

comment In bridge,should a responder devalue her hand if short in opener's suit?
While the long-suit length is certainly valuable, and long-suit points are interchangeable with short-suit points, you'll note that it's actually the length and not the shortness that is valuable. Shortness doesn't give any points in NT. Length can, yes, but shortness is technically valueless in NT.

comment MTG: Rise of the Dark Realms - what are some strategies to beat this card?
What are the most valuable cards? Instant mana, free cards, a free turn; pure 'speed' cards. Speed is good because it's difficult to beat. I'm saying it's the best way to beat this card and others like it: Keep the game short and don't let the card become usable and game-changing.

Well, there's the flaw in understanding right there. 34 is certainly enough for a small slam; in NT or with a trump fit. You weren't in NT, and you didn't have an 8-card trump suit. The primary concern is finding the fit, and going straight to 4NT takes away all the room you should be using to do so. Applicable bridge rule: "When there's no fit, QUIT."
