comment How Unethical Is A Purely “Blocking” Move In Ticket To Ride?
If you have agreed not to play a certain way before starting, or are playing in a location where a house rule is standard, then it would be unethical to go back on your word or break a rule (in effect, cheating). Otherwise, actions permissible within the scope of the rules and motivated only by in-game factors, regardless whether a group likes them or not, are still ethical. They may not make you popular, but there is a difference between something that is looked down upon and something that actually violates ethics.

comment How to successfully store games on edge?
I'm a big fan of tossing the insert and creating enough room to fit in expansions. I did this with both Small World and Last Night on Earth. At that point, the boxes do get fairly heavy. Unless you have perfectly equal sized boxes, you don't want to be stacking them at that point anyway or there will be some crushing.

Thanks for the help. We've played 4 or 5 games where we were all set to go for a 4th cure during the next time around the table, only to have the deck run out of cards 1-2 players before our cure could be cashed in. Playing the game properly should help turn these into a few wins now!

I completely agree. If you are making a move in game, it should only be considered unethical if you are motivated by factors outside the game, or are intentionally making a move that you fully believe is not the optimal move. However much this move "screw" the other player(s), if you truly believe you are making the most beneficial move you could make, then you are in the right.

comment Coloretto vs. Aquaretto and Zooloretoo, what are the differences and how can I tell which to buy?
I would love to hear more about this, whether it just be a link to some good rules for combining, or some of your personal thoughts that were imparted on you by the designer.

comment Small World: Do Spirit Ghouls Score When Active Race Declines?
Thanks for the answer. This was a sub-question to a previous misunderstanding, where I thought the player did not score during the turn they first entered decline. According to the rule book, you may not make new conquests on the turn you enter decline, but you do score.
