comment Is it possible to lose Forbidden Island on the first turn?
Further decreasing the probability below 1.98% is the fact that you have a reasonable chance of the first player being within 3 tiles of Fools' Landing (including the 1/6 chance of the first player being the Pilot, placing him/her on fool's landing). That makes it less than a 1 in 600 (0.1667%) chance of losing under those conditions. Of course, this answer covers this.

comment How does Rook compare in difficulty to other trick-taking games?
You might also find the question "Getting started with trick-taking games (whist, euchre, bridge, pinochle, etc.)" helpful.

Clarified that Hearts is about avoiding taking *points*, not *tricks*.

comment How Unethical Is A Purely “Blocking” Move In Ticket To Ride?
Sorry, I didn't see your comment in response. You're not far off with your definition of ethics, but it's less about behavior and who you are than it is about accepted principles of right vs. wrong. Ethics considers questions of right and wrong outside of specific applications. The distinction is that it's very possible to do something that's ethical (not "wrong" or against the rules), yet still isn't nice. I think the question of whether blocking is bad sportsmanship is a good question; it's just not the same as the question of ethics.
