comment What are the odds of drawing a given card after discarding my initial hand?
Note that edits within a five minute grace period are collapsed together. So it's not that big of a deal.

comment Will a developer fix a (small) broken mechanic, or should I fix it before the submission process begins?

comment How is the “Longest Route” calculated in Ticket to Ride?

comment In Monopoly, Is it OK for a third party to make a trade with a player who is about to lose?
That last is an example of the kind of house rule which causes the game to drag on forever. As with money-on-free-parking and not bothering with auctions, these changes are usually made by the same people who charge the game with being a slog.
