comment How can I get my heavy card stock game board to lie flat?
+1 Plexiglas is a fine idea for weighing down (and flattening) a warped board. The one problem with it is when you are playing a tile (or modular) based game, like Road Kill Rally (boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/65225/road-kill-rally). Having to lift the Plexiglas each turn sucks. How do we straighten warped cardboard?

comment What's a good table-topping material for tile-based games?
Does a tablecloth help? Sometimes this works for me, sometimes it doesn't. What about a large bread/cutting board? not beautiful to look at, but might work also.

comment What cooperative board games are there that I could safely play with my wife?
Unfortunately, my wife doesn't drink, but I will add this to the guys game night rules. As an odd aside, I just two minutes ago set the game up to teach my wife to play. I'll let you know how it goes...

comment Board games for two players
@gomad - Ascension is not a CCG. It's more on par with Thunderstone, in that it's a deck building game. Pretty good game at that, although I've only played the 2 player version, it's marked as 2-4 players. Still I would play this with 2 players, and Thunderstone with 3+.

comment How to eliminate advantages gained from the seating position of inferior players?
@Sparr - Again, it depends on the game. For example, When playing Puerto Rico, the 3 & 4th place players have a distinct starting advantage over the first (and second). I can see where having the least experienced on your right would be helpful also. My suggestion would be to roll dice for seating position, or have opposite players move 1 space right, just mix it up.

comment Interaction in Race For The Galaxy
I'm definitely in the "Card Denial" camp. One of the best parts of this game is holding/discarding the cards that my opponents need.

comment What is the best tournament format for Cripple Mr Onion?
please put add a tag for the game name. I haven't heard of this game before, so I'm unsure of the full correct name. If it is as listed above, please add a tag called 'cripple-mr-onion'. Thanks
