comment What is the name of this snakes-and-ladders-like race game?
I think I saw a board like this recently. Do you know/remember any graphical details from the board? Was the game connected in any way with snake and ladders in design?What I mean is: where there snakes on the board? Ladders?

Welcome to B&CG! It's great if you know the name of the game in question, but would be even better if you provide some links and quotations to make your answer more valuable.

comment Can I decide not to use all the power of a plant in Power Grid?
Yes, I knew about this, but as gbianchi already said, my case is a little different. I'm not producing more electricity than I have cities in my network - I'm producing exactly the same amount. However, I voluntarily want to waste some of it, even though there is no surplus generated.

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
Robber is on your hex, blocking your from collecting important resources. If you get rid of the robber, you gain one more opportunity to collect resources (4 for example) from this hex - you might just get them this turn and win the game. Please check my original question before edit.

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
Thank you for your answer. However I don't understand two things. First, I was under the impression that you can't build anything before rolling the dice. Second, I'm not sure why you assumed that I wasn't going to build anything in this turn. The plan was to move robber away (increase the chance of getting specific resource), block opponent, be left with 7 resource in case of the robber and (after rolling, depending on the result) build accordingly. So I wouldn't be left with the same 7 cards after this turn. Am I getting something wrong here?

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
@warren I understand, however the whole point of not stealing the resource was to have the same amount of resource cards in hand (7 to be specific) at the moment of rolling the dice. It was to avoid risk of having to discard half of your hand in the event of rolling 7 and activating the Robber.

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
@warren I'm not sure if this is what you meant, but it is an interesting question. I understand that it's allowed to put robber on hex only you are adjacent to, obviously without stealing any resources. But is it allowed to steal from yourself if there are also other players with resources, whose settlements are adjacent to the hex of your choosing?

@warren I don't think trading before rolling the dice is allowed in Settlers of Catan.

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
Thank you. In the original question I mentioned that not only you'd want to move the robber away, but also put it on specific hex - one that has all adjacent settlements belonging only to players with 1+ resources. In that case, there is no option to achieve this and not get 8th resource?

comment Avoiding stealing a resource when moving the robber in Catan
Thank you. I know this wasn't my question, but rules doesn't address many special cases here - maybe they are too obvious. Can you move the Robber to the hex with no adjacent settlements (no stealing)? What if the only player whose city is adjacent to hex of your choosing have no resources - can you move Robber here, since stealing won't be possible and you have to do it? What if there are two cities adjacent from two players, but only one of them has resources. Do you have to steal one from him or can you choose to steal from the player with empty hand? If you can, please expand your answer.

@ColinD There is a list of all Community Chest and Chance cards available on Wikipedia. It might not be the best surce of knowledge, but there is information that the Pay a $10 fine or take a Chance card was omitted in U.S. editions since 1936.

@tttppp Yes, you are right, this is the way to win the whole game for the spies, not the round.

comment When to make a small bet in two-player Haggis?
Yes, I should have pointed out that I'm only interested in 2 players variant of the game. I'm sorry, I will add this information to the question. Nonetheless, +1 for valuable answer and link to the similar question.
