comment Ticket to ride, local network game
Welcome to B&CG.SE! Can you provide any more information on what you're trying to accomplish? Any information, such as the platform you're playing on or the version of the game, may help illicit a response.

comment Are there any house rules for combining Munchkin and Fluxx?
I think these games derive their fun from chaos. Both games are largely built around the premise that the person who best survives the chaos wins. If you could figure out how to mix this aspect of both games...

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
I don't have time to research and provide a full answer, but keep in mind that some of the most sought after cards for tournament play are rare lands, like shocks and fetches. Many modern decks have a very expensive landbase because the cards that help fix your colors tend to be rares.

comment Online Scrabble Handicaps
The problem with this solution seems to be that it is negatively impacting the stronger player twice. (1) They are potentially losing more matches because of the handicaps that are being levied against them, thus winning less money/prestige, and then (2) their ELO rating still goes up in the system so they will continue to suffer the effects of handicaps. This leads to a potential future penalty on stronger players for losing games.

comment Online Scrabble Handicaps
It sounds like the problem isn't that the weaker players (according to ELO) are not winning, it's that you can't add the handicaps to the MATTEL system. So even if the final score was 350 (ELO 2000) to 345 (ELO 1450), the online system is giving the W to the stronger player even though your handicap has the weaker player winning by 110 points. The solution would then seem to be to be able to add the handicaps into the online system, which probably isn't possible. In this case, you'd need to do all of your ELO calculations outside of the website.

comment Will a copied spell trigger Prowess?
@DrunkCynic The second part of the OP's question isn't answered in the suggested duplicate. Maybe an edit to eliminate the first part and point toward the duplicate, while leaving the second part open.

comment Does a monopoly in a commodity in Sheriff of Nottingham gain both bonuses?
Is it possible to add a quote from his response to your answer? That would certainly answer the question that was asked. And then you can accept your own answer if you'd like, since it'd have more support than mine.

comment Do dead monsters really have to leave the game?
@PhilipKendall Maybe a bit of an exaggeration on my part, but the first person eliminated from our games generally has to sit around for much longer than is desirable before a new game starts. And maybe we're being too strategic for a game about smashing Tokyo...

comment Do dead monsters really have to leave the game?
@GendoIkari I think your answer of how to transform the health resource into points makes sense, I just think that the OP may as well find a new game that more appropriately aligns with their gaming preferences.

comment In Monopoly, Is it OK for a third party to make a trade with a player who is about to lose?
Is the quote in the middle of your answer taken from the rulebook? Some attribution would certainly help strengthen your answer. And welcome to B&CG!

comment Do dead monsters really have to leave the game?
@GendoIkari This doesn't really make much sense. The game is centered around two resources: victory points and health. If you remove health, you also take away many of the game mechanics, and effectively eliminate two sides of the dice. So now we've eliminated one way to win and 1/3 of the main game mechanic (dice rolling). At this point, it's time to design a new board game.

comment King of Tokyo: Omnivore
However, you don't score dice "at the end of your turn." You score them at step 2 of your turn.

comment What are some good ways to transition to more complex strategic thinking games?
I actually think that CCG and RPG gamers may be two separate categories for strategy complex gaming given their unique attributes. There is certainly crossover between these groups and people who play board games. However, the price/gotta catch 'em all qualities of CCGs and the immersion of RPGs create different experiences that only certain gamers will enjoy.

comment Playing Pathfinder ACG with all adventure deck cards in early scenarios
Welcome to B&CG StackExchange! Is it possible to link to some of the forums you reference so that the OP can take a look at other discussions about the level of difficulty?

comment Usage of Philanthropist Flare as Schizoid
@user1873 That is the rule for the Eon version of Cosmic Encounter, and given the mention of the Flare, I'd guess the OP is asking about the FFG version.

I'm not seeing anywhere that prices are listed. Does this website provide that? And welcome to B&CG!

comment First strike and bioshift
Could you add a reference to the MTG Comp Rules for this?

comment First strike and bioshift
The question I have is why it is even necessary for the first strike creature to deal damage. It's blocked, and you know you're moving the counters anyway. If the player is dead, it doesn't really matter if their creature died first.

comment Why is Trade Secrets banned in EDH or Commander?
I was just about to post the fact that EDH isn't WotC moderated. I think this is an important point when it comes to the ban list.
