comment In Robo Rally, does a powered down robot get to earn option cards and repair?
@Joey Yes, I'd agree, especially from the FAQ.

Actually I'm kind of glad, because I think the first edition gives more clues to the answer. I'll update my answer with more details.

comment How can I ensure the Commander deck I'm creating is appropriate for my group's meta?
I think this might be more an issue of too localized than too subjective. I think the answer is likely only useful to people in his particular playgroup.

comment dominion adventures, using tokens on duration piles
Note that this is also why Durations in play from the previous turn don't count towards Conspirator's checking how many actions have been played. But they DO count towards Peddler checking how many cards are "in play."

comment Is there a card that makes an enemy play my spell?
Mindslaver is somewhat similar.

comment Am I allowed to shortcut two abilities that allow me to search my deck?
In casual play definitely. In a tournament I'd be surprised if a judge made you literally shuffle the cards immediately before looking through them again; but I won't leave an answer on that because I don't know tournaments that well. Just remember that either way, some things can trigger on you shuffling, so for those purposes you DID "shuffle" twice, even if you didn't physically shuffle the first time.

comment Can you block with a creature then return it to your hand before it takes damage?
@ArthurGardiner Thematically, returning a creature to your hand is like having that creature run away while dodging the attack that's coming at him. The blocking worked because the enemy creature already used up his attack / ammo / whatever in trying to hit the creature that was blocking instead of trying to hit the player.

comment Whats the perfect set for Agricola solo series using E, I, and K decks?
Actually the rulebook discusses the option to choose your own cards. Solo player Agricola can be seen more as a puzzle to solve than a "game". From the rulebook: "Many Solo players enjoy choosing their own cards – even determining the order of the Round cards. You can also try the following three “contests”: restrict your Occupation and Improvement cards to only one of Deck E, I or K."

@powerlord Good point, added.

comment Can damage be removed from creatures after it's already been dealt?
I think changing the zone of a creature, such as with Flicker, should be listed here. Though the creature that comes back is a brand new object, it still does the job of removing the damage from your creature.

comment When races are defeated, do the tokens all go back to the tray for redraw (if power allows)?
I don't agree on it being a moot point. The number of available Skeleton and Sorcerer tokens is purposefully limited so that you can run out. If killed tokens were removed from the game instead, those races would be less powerful.

comment Band of Misfits copying Feast and then Island
@codebreaker I have asked your question over at dominionstrategy, where Donald himself will hopefully answer soon; as I'm not 100% sure I'm correct.

comment Band of Misfits copying Feast and then Island
@codebreaker I think so, yes. For example, Throne Room + Mining Village. If you choose to trash Mining Village the first time it is played, then you cannot trash it again the second time, because it expects itself to be in play. (Though in that case, even without Lose Track you couldn't trash it because to trash it means to move it from somewhere that isn't the trash to the trash).

Not that I know of; wiki.dominionstrategy.com should always have the latest information, along with details about if a ruling is new or a reversal of a previous ruling. Such a thing is very rare.

comment In Monopoly, Can I mortgage properties as I am bankrupted?
It's a start, but I don't think that answers the question. It clarifies that you must sell your houses, but doesn't say anything one way or the other about mortgaging properties.

comment In Monopoly, Can I mortgage properties as I am bankrupted?
Do you have a rules quote for this? As Ivo Becker's comment said, I usually see people mortgage everything they can before giving up.

comment Band of Misfits and Throne Room
Note that there was recently a lengthy discussion about this, which resulted in Donald X actually changing a previous ruling, and saying that Palying BoM as another card counts as playing 2 actions. See here: forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=13115.0

comment How does stacking and resolving work exactly?
Worth mentioning that in tournaments (and often in casual play), priority is passed by default unless you state that you want to keep it.

comment Can I shortcut a loop with conditional actions?
@Guvante, Note that the OP specifies Darksteel Forge in play to avoid this issue. However, I believe that the answer should be the same either way; it's just the difference between needing about 2 million flips, and needing somewhere around 2^1000000 flips.
