comment Can I use my Tafl game to play Thud?
+1 for warning me off building clacks towers. The real Thud game is no longer in print, and when it was in print it 5x as expensive as this set! Thanks!

comment What is the best strategy to avoid large farms in Carcassonne?
Hi Snow, welcome to the site! Right now your answer reads more like a discussion, thought it does have some useful points to it. Could you head over to the faq if you've not already, then come back and slim down you response, so it answers the original question? Perhaps if you highlight exactly how you tackle big farms, and not just a discussion about them?

comment City card and predicting when Supply piles will run low
I've only played 5 times, and everytime I've seen it played it's won the game, so long as you can trash or burn through the supply, eventually with enough city's in your hand you draw all of them and can pick what you want to play form your deck.
