comment Pre-drawing cards or tiles
If the question is deemed to Opinion-based, it could be reworded as "What are the advantages and disadvantages of pre-drawing tiles" or "How to allow pre-drawing tiles without breaking the game". LittleBobbyTables' "No-discussion" notion is a very important point here when pre-drawing.

comment What are good general strategies for Pandemic?
@JefBray are you sure? I thought once you found a medicine of a color, and eradicated the last cube of that color, the disease can not come back anymore. New cards of that color are to be discarded?

comment Pandemic and Forbidden Island - How similar are they?
But forbidden island tile layout has two effects: first, which tiles already "sank" (in Pandemic: which cities infected), but second: which tiles are connected to which. In Pandemic, travel between cities is always the same, as it represents the Earth.

comment Dominion Seaside Treasure Map: do both copies activate?
But, with three treasure maps and a throne room, you could throne the first and thrash the other two, gaining 8 golds?

comment Should I trash Copper or Silver with Mine?
@PatLudwig, true! But I meant, in the current hand. Your next hand will contain the copper you didn't upgrade ;]

comment What are mistakes beginners should avoid in Dominion?
The village idiot should try to become a festival idiot instead. Festival does offer nice benefits (but no +1 card).

comment Should I trash Copper or Silver with Mine?
However, if you draw your mine again and you have only gold, you can't upgrade. Draw the mine again and have a silver, you can use it. This is why I generally choose to upgrade the lowest value.

comment What are some good ways to transition to more complex strategic thinking games?
Strategy-only games can include certain games where a (small) factor of luck is present: in the long run, luck will equal out amongst players and the strategist will win. Why do poker championships almost always see the same top players, even though it is a cards game?

comment Pre-drawing cards or tiles
@Lo'oris: offcourse you are right when totally random. But when out-of-order drawing, 2 factors come in to play here: 1/ People are superstitious and believe that "their drawing choice" has an influence "whoah, look at that stack always giving me cloisters" and 2/ Unless the shuffle was perfect, tiles might not be entirely random (influenced by previous games). But it's mostly about the perceived drawing choice for the other players.
