By day (and night, far too often) I'm the Operations Manager at Digital Motorworks.

Most of the rest of the time I'm with my family or gaming, or thinking about gaming.

Currently playing a 14th level Shifter Paladin in a 4th edition DnD campaign. I'm also just starting to run a campaign of my own.

Willing to play boardgames whenever I can find people willing to lose to me :)

comment Does movement end when you land on an open gate?
@riv_rec - Basically, yes. The steps for each round are: Upkeep, Movement, Arkham Encounters, Off-World Encounters, Mythos. Each player does each phase before going onto the next phase.

Welcome to B&CG! Can you flesh out this answer a bit? Perhaps by telling us what you did to research the answer? Are you familiar with this rule set? Thanks!

Minor correction - I believe you only had to name one correct card in the original Civilization board game.

comment When I put the robber on someone in Settlers of Catan, does the resource I take HAVE to be random?
@aramis - In general I don't agree with you as to the uselessness of the FAQ. In this particular case, I believe the rule has been the same forever in that the card must be chosen randomly.

Recommendation questions are off-topic per our faq. They don't fit well with the StackExchange format of Q&A and are better suited for a regular forum. Thanks!

@thesunneversets - hmm, late last night it seemed there was a difference. Rereading them, I'm less sure of that!

comment Puerto Rico - Custom gameplay tweaks to introduce player interactions
Have you tried these proposed rules? Rather than discussing them when nobody has any practical experience, it is often better to try them out, see how they work and then come here to ask specific questions about problems encountered. See this meta question for a more in depth discussion.
