comment Preventing/minimising damage from beer spills
I have a simple rule - if you want to put your drink on the table, you are responsible for replacing the game if it's ruined by the drink being spilled (whoever causes the spill). So if it's out of print, don't do it. If it's cheap, take the risk.

comment With both Seafarers and Cities & Knights expansions, how many victory points should I play to?
I'd caution against doing this. I love both expansions (especially C&K), but the one game I tried with both was just too bogged down and lost focus.

comment How to play Werewolf/Mafia with exactly 6 players?
Have you tried Coup? Doesn't have the voting (although there's still bluffing and discussion), but does have player elimination.

comment Multiplayer timer for board games
You can give VP penalties for going over time if you use the "total time per player" method. This avoids the game-dynamic changing too much. For example, in Vinci, 1 point per (part) minute over is quite effective at speeding people up.

comment Are there simplified rules for Race for the Galaxy?
They are almost exactly the same game, only with different cards. They aren't just similar - San Juan is basically a simplified version of RftG.

comment Battlestar Galactica: How to balance core game
It includes a suggestion which answers the question, hence why I posted it as an answer (as a personal pet peeve, I hate it when people post answers in the comments to my questions, because I can't then accept them. I've even had to resort to copying an pasting them myself as answers)

revised Saint Petersburg: What happens when you upgrade a full warehouse?
Added context, because I like it like that and find it makes the question flow better.

comment What do you do when one or more adults is upset or acting inappropriately?
Self-pitying, if done well, is a diplomacy tactic! Especially in a game with an attack-the-leader mechanic.
