comment What is the name of the game where you bid for a hand in decreasing numbers?
Quote from the link: Its original name Oh Hell! evidently offended some people and has been bowdlerised in many books to Oh Pshaw! or Oh Well!, while others have preferred more robust alternatives such as Oh Shit! Some call it Blob or Blackout... has given rise to the names Elevator (l'Ascenseur in France), Up and Down the River (in Australia and New Zealand) and 10 op en neer in the Netherlands. In Britain it is often known as Nomination Whist... Other names include Bust (in Australia and New Zealand), Boerenbridge (in the Netherlands), Kachuful (in India) and German Bridge (in Hong Kong).

comment What can I do with the Joker if I remove every tile from its meld? (Can I even do that?)
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.

There's a big difference between "biased" and "informed".
