Sorry. What's the question?

comment Which computer board game designer works best for card games?
Please could you add some detail, summarising something about why this site would help answer the question? As it stands, such a short answer is borderline product spam.

comment What is the original purpose of Bazaar of Baghdad?
Attunement is another older card (Urza's Saga) with this mechanic. It can be reused over and over, like the Bazaar.

@Jeff Snider - That website is insane(I gave up)! If you can post a direct link to the English rules as an answer, that would be great.

comment When scoring in Prosperity, is there a maximum limit for research?
@MK78 - I haven't found that. Obviously those cards are crucial, but it's the timing that matters most. You can't just buy Prosperity symbols and ignore research or ecology, for example.

comment How quickly does a player have to say “Uno” to avoid drawing exta cards?
@Saloman Miguel - Nope! Re-read the rule I quoted: you may not catch a player for a failure to say UNO after the next player begins his turn. So if you've started your turn, it's too late. I think it's fair to assume the rules expect the game to be played in a single sitting. If a single game was spread overnight, and you haven't had your turn yet, I think it's still in the spirit of the rules that you've missed your chance to penalise your friend if you've left it for hours to notice. The point is you notice immediately, or the player gets away with it.

comment In bridge, are there different implications of overcalling 1NT in different positions?
@Pieter Geerkens, Aryabhata - This thread is getting rather long. Consider taking the discussion to chat if there's more to say.

comment Are all jenga blocks of exactly same size?
Thanks, but I don't think it's enough to be the answer. I'd like to see some detailing of the differences to have definitive proof.

Fine with leaving this title edit, since it is in context, but note that this is not necessary for search engine optimisation. Stack Overflow is optimized so that tags are indexed by search engines along with the content of the question. See Should questions include tags in their titles?

comment Problems with learning curve and player elimination in Eclipse
Sorry. This has been discussed before, and this question is explicitly disallowed. "Games like X", regardless of specificity, are not on topic. Please see Should we ban game recommendation questions? - Done and Is this a game recommendation question? for the reasoning. Feel free to raise this on meta for further discussion if you feel this question should not be subject to our recommendation policy.

comment Does “any” mean “all” or “one” for cards like Cheetah?
Probably worth noting that one of the responses claims to be from an official play-tester, which adds some circumstantial weight to the ruling.

comment Which circumstances make one favour track better than another in Caylus?
I didn't downvote, but I expect the reason is that you've only partially addressed the question, and in a somewhat ad-hoc way. Really the question is about when different tracks are more or less useful. As written, it sounds like your answer is "the building track is what you should go for, always, because that's what my friends do." Which isn't a great answer. It would be interesting if you could expand your reasoning a little more.
