comment What happens to enchantments that are attached to creatures when the creatures are returned to your hand?
@HaoYe It still wouldn't be an Aura though, yeah? Just an Artifact Enchantment attached via the equip ability? But yes, I suppose!

comment Can you back out of action?
Or in other words, the rules say if you get challenged and were lying, you lose an influence (a life, basically), not that you get to choose whether or not you'd like to lose it.

comment What happens when I deal lethal damage to everyone at the same time?
You might however be able to convince your friends that you have achieved a moral victory by ending the game on your own terms!

comment How many rules does Magic have?
The rules with zeroes in them aren't very interesting anyway, don't worry.

comment Can I activate an ability after part of a spell has resolved? (please read example)
@PoorPinkus I wouldn't worry about it; sometimes it's hard to know whether the context is important or not, and it's better to provide too much than too little. (As long as it's not a ton to read through, which it definitely wasn't.) It didn't really help your question, but it also didn't really harm it.

comment What happens if Humble Defector is sacrificed before its ability resolves?
Same question for triggered abilities: boardgames.stackexchange.com/q/18647 and for activated abilities with returning to hand instead of sacrificing: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/7893/…

comment Does the team get points if the word is singular but they guess plural?
@Thunderforge I guess by "correct" you mean "as written in the rules"? That's certainly a question you can ask, but arguably it's not really a useful one. I would instead look for the best rule. Clumsy's answer essentially says this: the strict rule as written is that it has to be the exact word, but in practice that's pretty frustrating, so if you can agree with the people you play with to allow variants, you may have a better game. The designer isn't going to come after you if you tweak the rules; all that matters is that everyone who's playing knows what the rules are.

comment Thrashing Wumpus and Keen Sense
@John Six. If there are multiple events that match a trigger condition, it triggers multiple times. Maybe a more obvious example of the same thing: Blood Artist says "Whenever Blood Artist or another creature dies, target player loses 1 life and you gain 1 life." and it will trigger multiple times if multiple creatures die simultaneously.

comment Forgetting to steal in Settlers of Catan
It's always in someone's favor to fix the mistake. And if you're to the point where you're worried about people actively trying to cheat (which is basically what you just described), all the more reason to reroll - clearly the player would use the additional information. I don't think making mistakes in order to reroll is really an issue; you can't know whether you want to reroll until you've rolled, and then it's too late to go back and make a mistake. (And if your games are really this cutthroat, making a mistake before every roll just in case will surely be noticed.)

comment Forgetting to steal in Settlers of Catan
It's probably way better to always reroll so there's no extra information while backtracking, assuming you're only doing minor backtracking. It still avoids all discussion.

comment Carcassonne city scoring
By castle do you mean city? And... are you saying that the thing you were asking about doesn't actually exist, so there's no question to answer here anymore?

comment Can multiple spells be activated with the same mana?
Please please read the basic rulebook (also linked in murgatroid99's answer) - if you have this kind of misunderstanding, you likely have others.
