comment If an Outpost is played during a Possessed hand, is the Outpost hand played next?
I guess the wild ride would be for the one who got possessed in the first place. Outpost twice in the same turn is possible (like via Golem), it just doesn't help you normally. But now I'm curious what happens if you do play Outpost Possession Outpost. Meh, this isn't a conversation for comments.

Just be careful if you are Possessing someone and you have them play an Outpost, then a Possession, then another Outpost. You're in for a wild ride.

comment How can I beat “Big Money” in Dominion?
@JSBangs Why, yes! code.google.com/p/dominionsim For programmers only; you'll need to build it. It doesn't have all the cards implemented, but it's still fun to play with.

comment Clarifying house rules for Monopoly
I sympathize. One of the main reasons I can't stand Monopoly is that most people I play with don't actually know the true rules of the game but assume they do. Then they get mad when I show them they're doing it wrong.

comment Diplomacy “lite”?
One major way A Game of Thrones differs from Diplomacy is that A Game of Thrones explicitly forbids private communication - if you have anything to say, you have to say it to all players. This changes the negotiation aspect quite a bit in a way that I personally prefer.

comment What are good standard tactics for Dominion?
Native Village can work when combined with things like Spy and Pearl Diver. Certainly, it's not as good as Island, or Chapel, or Mine, but hey getting rid of 2-3 copper or victory cards can really help a deck.

Other cards that can do this include Island and Native Village.

The most successful decks I have seen employing this strategy use Chapel and use it ruthlessly. If you draw Chapel, 3 Copper, and 1 Estate on turn 3, Trash them all and buy nothing rather than getting the Silver. So long as you don't drop below 3-4 coins in your deck, you should be fine.
