comment Pandemic's difficulty seems to rest on the placement of the first epidemic card in the deck
Also, teeny note, the 59 cards includes all the epidemics; in easy mode it's 57.

@dwjohnston Adding epidemics is a pretty solid method of adjusting the difficulty; I'd try that before messing with it on your own.

comment Which effect takes precedence?
@link64 Understandable - I just figure, taking someone basically out of commission for likely 1/3 to 1/2 of the turns of the game is a bit much even for Arkham, and makes the game pretty un-fun for that player.

comment Single player variant of pandemic?
(Sorry, the base rules, anyway. In the Lab does have the solo variant.)

comment Single player variant of pandemic?
It seems trivially true that you can play as multiple players, and also fairly clear that the rules don't allow for truly having only one player - is there something in particular you're trying to find out?

comment Are Magic: the Gathering Conspiracy cards colorless?
@murgatroid99 For what it's worth, rule 105 itself also supports this, albeit not explicitly: "An object can be one or more of the five colors, or it can be no color at all." I think that, combined with the list below (monocolored, multicolored, colorless) at least implies that those are the only possibilities for any object.

comment Are Magic: the Gathering Conspiracy cards colorless?
@corsiKa The comprehensive rules include rules for conspiracy cards and Conspiracy Draft, so even if there are some funky rules quirks out there, Wizards clearly made an effort to make them fit into the rules framework. They've also made it pretty clear that Un- cards aren't really covered by the comp rules. That seems like a fairly good reason to make a distinction between Conspiracy and Unhinged.

comment What's the technical term for the period of time between when an opponent concludes their turn and mine begins?
I think it's pretty clear from the second sentence, actually (...the last time you will be able to do so..."). But sometimes it is also worth explicitly addressing the phrasing in the question. It sounds like the OP thought the turn ended at the end of the second main phase, but it doesn't: it's followed by the end step (and the cleanup step), which are part of the turn, not between turns.

You might want to have a look at the basic rulebook. In particular for this question, page 16 explains the phases/steps of a turn. But there might be other things in there you haven't realized too!

comment After being drawn into a gate during an Encounter, do you have an Other World encounter in the same turn?
In any case, based on what's actually in the rules, you definitely have three encounters. Anything else (skipping an encounter or skipping being delayed) seems to definitely be house rules.
