comment Can you choose not to assign damage to a second blocker?
Though from what I can see, 510.1c and 510.1d are word for word identical except "blocked" vs "blocking".

comment What is the justification of the card type Tribal in Magic the Gathering?
I don't see in your question a reason for thinking that it's better or more logical for it to be a supertype instead of a card type?

comment Can an ability track a card across multiple zones?
Logically, the game can't really track that sort of thing, because there's no way for the game to know if the second Walk the Aeons that is cast is the same physical card as the first one or not.

comment Information about “Make Twenty One, no more, no less” wooden Tabletop Game
If this is a game you own, including a picture of it would help.

comment In Catan, when a settlement breaks a road. Do the other existing roads sit there? or are they removed?
Might want to specifically add that section A can still be built on; he can build more roads and settlements over there.

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.

comment Optimal Dominion strategy with only the Mine action card
I agree that it's not opinion-based, but I'm not sure what a good answer could look like. It seems like a trivial solution; unless his real question is "how many Mines should you buy"? There's very little room to improve or change up a strategy.

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
@murgatroid99 I think it is reasonable to assume that, but then to realize that your assumption was wrong when your opponent then makes another statement that makes no sense if he really intended to propose that shortcut.

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
@murgatroid99 Fair enough. So if it's currently your main phase, and you want to do something at the beginning of combat phase, you would just say "go to beginning of combat phase?"?

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
I agree with intentions, and think Noah is acting shady to say the least. "I thought you animated Mutavault after you decided to declare no attackers." No he didn't, that's almost definitely a lie. Why would someone intentionally animate Mutavault in the declare attackers phase, after declaring no attackers? Once Anthony tried to activate Mutavault, Noah knew his intention. Now it's a legitimate question if it matters at that point or not, but Noah shouldn't be claiming ignorance.

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
@Waterseas I see that that's what's in the rules, I'm just confused about why that's the rule. In plain English, you would think "ready for combat?" would imply "I want to move to the combat phase".

comment If a player goes to “combat”, and then activates an ability, what is the game state?
I'm confused about why "combat?" would imply skipping until opponent has priority in beginning of combat phase. What would be the proper communication to say that you want to take an action in the beginning of combat phase?
