comment Can a disease be eradicated at the beginning of the game?
@warren I edited accordingly - though without specifically focusing on the first turn, since that's a bit confusing in the context of the OP's question.

comment Odd Monopoly situation: rolling doubles to get out of jail is ALSO third double in a row!
@murgatroid99 Aha, good point! Suuuper small, but nonzero!

@murgatroid99 Probabilities of landing on each space, probably? I don't think the other players can do anything to cause you to move differently.

comment Is there any interaction between hypothetical continuous effects?
@HaoYe If you look at the discussion in chat here, and on ikegami's answer, it's quite clear that no one thinks that the ability is removed. murgatroid's claim is rather about the scope of the "as though" - for things within that scope, one acts as though there it doesn't have forestwalk, in particular that the scope possibly includes the whole game state at the point at which "can/can't be blocked" decisions are made.

comment Is it always better to play a knight immediately?
@JoeW That's why I asked, but the OP said no. Maybe he had some political motive? Wanted it moved to another opponent who seemed to be in the lead?

Did the other person perhaps have some personal interest in the knight getting moved?

comment Is there any interaction between hypothetical continuous effects?
@murgatroid99 I'm not saying it's hard to get an answer at all from the rules, I'm saying it's hard to prove an answer the way I attempted to here (and the way ikegami started to).

comment Is there any interaction between hypothetical continuous effects?
@murgatroid99 For the record, though, I do think this is right, it's just hard to emphatically prove it from the rules; they don't really say anything about "can be blocked as though" meaning "while declaring blockers act as though" vs "when evaluating the legality of a set of blocks act as though" but I'm pretty confident it's the latter. The purpose of the layers stuff was to come to a conclusion even if you weren't convinced by the interpretation of the wording on the card, not to say that I think you actually need to think about layers to figure this one out.

@murgatroid If there's a revision you like, please just roll it back, otherwise I'll try to come back later and sort out what happened here. (I'm pretty sure other people were not happy with the part I took out, and I spent a lot of time in chat trying to defend it...)
