comment Does Dixit need any modifications to play with 7, 8, 9, and 10 players?
@user1873 To make it clear, the bonus point is only awarded if their one vote was selecting the correct one (i.e. if you only vote for one, and it happens to be correct, you receive four points instead of three - I don't think the rules made it explicit if you got the bonus when everyone picked correctly, so we played it as "No"). I'm sure that's logical, but your comment made it a bit unclear whether you understood that...

Re: the 'bogus clues' thing, in my ten-player game yesterday this didn't seem to be an issue; we had at least one or two rounds where no player correctly selected the storyteller's card. Not sure if this was a representative sample though.

comment How to successfully store games on edge?
@aramis I tend to use hair elastics instead (eg: ladyjayne.com.au/ajax.php?pid=255&height=300&width=500 ) - the fabric covering means that they're less likely to mark the cards, and the wrapped deck is more likely to fit back into its tray insert than ziplock bags. Does have the bowing issue you mentioned, though.

comment What are the differences between the Fluxx games?
@Jon I'm so excited, I can't even tell you. I'm terrified about how long it will take to get to Australia though. :(

@thesun Fluxx 3.1 is probably my favourite game :)

@Kempeth No, I'm terrible at poker. We've just always played with chips, because otherwise how do you keep score?

comment Rewards and punishments for card games
I'm confused. Why would you play poker without gambling? I don't even like the game, and I'm missing something here.

comment What variables should a Zendo game contain if it's being played with new players?
The first game I played of Zendo, the master picked "Opaqueness" as the variable. It took a very long time to identify. :S.
