comment Building Limit in Lords or Waterdeep
Yeah, perhaps Undermountain raises scores in general for all players, I don't know... but I'm used to people getting only 16 or 20 bonus points at the end; 54 is a lot. And I would think that bonus points from having buildings would be "worth more" than the other bonus points, because having that many buildings has other advantages.

@Othya I'm not completely sure about the rules given in meta here, but questions about game design are pretty common. Your comment here gives a possible reason (which I mentioned in my comment on the OP), but many games also say in the rules that components are not intended to be limiting, and they could have said you are allowed to build more than the 9 tokens the game comes with.

I updated the question to add clarification. Either way though, the question was clearly "why", and this doesn't address "why" at all.

comment Why can an ability resolve even if I exiled the creature it came from?
If you're looking for a more thematic explanation, in addition to the (correct) answers given below, think of activating the Goblin's ability as throwing a grenade at the target. Now that the grenade has been thrown, getting rid of the goblin isn't going to help, even if you do it before the grenade explodes.

comment Will infinite loops still force a draw if I have a way to end them?
The sanguine blood combo does have a way to stop... Your opponent will die. So it's not an infinite loop. For the other combo, it's only a draw if you do not end the loop.

comment Losing Control of Bestowed Enchantment Creatures
@IlMatto0; Tribute does NOT mean what you think it does! The reminder text below the Tribute keyword clarifies this, but Tribute 3 means that your opponent can choose to have it enter the battlefield with 3 +1/+1 counters on it... NOT that your opponent can choose to pay 3 mana!

One other thought that doesn't serve as a real answer... since the base game had fewer ways to build more buildings; it was extremely unlikely that any 1 player could ever get more than 9 buildings anyway; so they only included 9 ownership markers. And this simply carried over into an actual rule that you can only have 9.

Ah ok... I've played Skullport but not Undermountain yet. I suppose that makes sense.

I'm also very surprised that a builder with 9 buildings wouldn't win the game... in my experience, most people get either 16 or 20 bonus points from their role; you're talking about 36 points there, plus the benefit of owning so many buildings.

Also, with only 8 rounds per game; how are you building that many? Normally only 1 building can be built per round; though there are certain ways to be allowed to choose a spot that someone else chose; or other ways to build a building without taking the building spot... but it seems unlikely that you'd be able to get so many.

Though this is speculation; it's quite possible that you just provided the exact reason... if you could build 12+ buildings; it would be way too good for the builder.

comment How does selling buildings and bankruptcy work in Monopoly?
@Monoprice Sorry, that sentence was unclear. You can do just what you suggest; you just can't do it if you had an equal number of houses to start with. I will edit for clarification. It is not legal to use any property to pay debts directly, but the debtor can always agree to any deal where you give him property for some amount of money (and then that money would be used immediately to pay him; so it's the same for both of you as if you used the property to pay).

comment Does Dormant Sliver mean Slivers can no longer attack?
Note that "like a wall" is incorrect. Except for earlier editions of the game, "Wall" is just a creature type, and has no special rules associated with it. A wall can attack unless it has the "defender" keyword. All older wall-type cards were given errata to have "defender."
