comment When the ancient one awakens, do we pass the first player token?
@link64 Some of the ancient ones care about who the first player is. If you're fighting Zhar you probably care who gets grabbed first. (Or you don't, because Zhar is incredibly hard to beat in combat.)

comment In Arkham Horror, can my investigator only use Dragon's Eye on the drawn gate if she is the 'first player'?
There are a few things that do affect the mythos deck, but I think they're all phrased clearly enough to avoid first player issues, like Jacqueline Fine.

comment In Arkham Horror, what card is shown on the bottom right of the board display of the rulebook?
@Thunderforge Maybe! I'd thought there were two lines of text there, but now that I think about it, more likely the bottom part of the frame was more ornate.

comment In Arkham Horror, what card is shown on the bottom right of the board display of the rulebook?
@Joey Yes, the rules do say to discard to the bottom. I'm just saying that a discard pile is the only thing that really makes sense to me for the image. I went through all my small cards and didn't see anything else anywhere near as similar to that as a bank loan. Maybe there's something I missed somehow, though.

comment In Arkham Horror, what card is shown on the bottom right of the board display of the rulebook?
@Joey They are sometimes discarded (see the text), as are many other investigator-related items. I imagine the setup there was just envisioning a single discard pile for all of them. It's true that it'd be much easier to discard back to the deck it came from. (And I wouldn't feel the need to follow any of the suggested layout that doesn't make sense.)

comment In Arkham Horror, do you ignore counting items that can't be lost or stolen when going insane or unconscious?
@Joey I never thought this made much sense. In practice, you pretty much only ever have one or maybe two "can't lose" items, so you always have plenty of other things to lose, and it never even comes up. It really feels like if they bothered writing that on the card it should actually matter sometimes. But... that's what the rules say.

comment How prepared will I be to play Arkham Horror after reading just the Rulebook?
If you're really worried, you can do a solo game (maybe with two investigators) to make sure you figure out the obvious stuff before you try playing with a group of less patient people.

comment Is it impossible to pay off-color mana costs in EDH?
Maybe say the general form too, not just the specific example, so you don't have to piece out what the important parts are? The important thing is that you're stealing an opponent's creature and using it to pay for an opponent's spell that has convoke. (The example is helpful, but if you don't know the individual cards, you end up going to look at them to figure out how it works instead of just understanding that it's using convoke.)

comment Do morph cards suffer summoning sickness
@Rainbolt Changed the face up/face down. As for the rest, as you say, it's pretty picky - and it's more a matter of personal style than anything else. If sentence length is forced to vary when things actually require explanation, it can easily make things harder to read. If there's something specific you think needs clarifying I'm happy to reword, though.

comment Do morph cards suffer summoning sickness
@RubberDuck I tried to make it even more explicit. I think you're focusing overly much on answering the question exactly the way the OP phrased it, as a yes or no question, while my answer is speaking more broadly about when the creature does and doesn't have summoning sickness (and why).

@Pacerier Best to ask things like that as new questions so everyone can benefit and you can get full answers!
