comment Starfarers of Catan game mechanics
I recommend checking out Catan: Pirates and Explorers expansion. It adds a lot of what Starfarers has is terms of hidden new tiles to explore before you can settle them.

comment Are treasure cards spent by Storyteller still in play?
Note that treasure cards are not in any way tied to the coins that they produce, same with actions that produce coins like Woodcutter. Spending coins, whether through storyteller or just by buying a card, has no effect on any treasures or actions you played to get those coins.

comment When is it worthwhile to aim for visits from Nobles?
I on the other hand have seen very few, if any, games where the winner did not have at least 1 Noble. You're going to be getting well over 8 or 9 tiles before the game ends, just to have enough gems to afford the more expensive tiles. Perhaps there's some groupthink going on in both our groups; if everyone goes for Nobles, than the winner will always have Nobles.

comment Should I use all actions before buying anything?
@PhilipKendall So does Storyteller, but it didn't seem necessary to mention edge cases like this when explaining the very basics.

comment Should I use all actions before buying anything?
In addition to the correct answer below; you seem to be misunderstanding a few things. You CANNOT play treasure cards in your action phase; you must wait until your buy phase. Also, you don't "buy things with Copper". Copper is a card that, when played, produces coin/money that you can spend, just like Market and Woodcutter do. In your buy phase, you play whatever treasure cards you want, then add up all coin you've produced this turn (from treasure cards + action cards), then buy what you want.

comment Returning from exile at end step
It sounds like this question is primarily about if returning during the end step is different than returning any other time. That is not answered by the answer here or by the suggested duplicate.

comment Optimal Dominion strategy with only the Mine action card
Did you ever try gaining a single Mine over Gold (when you happen to hit $6 before ever having hit $5)? It looks like it hurts the strategy a bit in my tests, but your script is a little different.

comment What happens if a target for removal becomes ineligible after a card has been cast?
I think that other question should be closed as a duplicate of this one... this one came first.
