comment Can one 40k army fight another of the same?
If you don't like Space Marines, why not just pick something else? Orks, Eldar, Tyranids..?

We always used to call Black and Blue decks "bruiser decks", back in the day.

comment D4 dice that are truncated tetrahedrons?
Are you talking about these? Product number seems to be XQ0004 or XQ0060. The link also has 8 and 12-sided d4s.

comment Are counters (noun) physical things?
At a desperate pinch, when absolutely nothing else has been available, I have even used other cards (face down and offset stacked) as counters. Unwieldy, inelegant and annoying, but better than nothing.

@Discord - As long as you don't knock the dice over.

comment In Smallworld, do Fortresses pay the +1 VC only on the turn they are placed, or do they each pay for every turn that the race is active?
I'm not clear how this answers the question..?

Does this answer your question? What do you recommend putting in an Arkham Horror quick reference sheet?

comment Playing the Role of an Arkham Master in Arkham Horror?
Hi, welcome to the site. Interesting post, but I think a bit too murky for a single question, and unlikely to get a satisfying answer. There are really three different questions here. I'd suggest you split them accordingly: 1) What should I do to 'gamesmaster' a game of Arkham?, 2) What's the best way to teach a new player to play Arkham?, 3) Are there any house rules to play as the Herald?

comment Can we fake-advance any card?
I see the quote on the BGG thread you link to, but is there a reason we should believe it? In other words, what makes it authoritative, rather than just someone's opinion?

comment Specific standard measurements and info necessary for making a standard Shogi set (board and koma)
@Eduan - Putting your work in progress in an answer certainly makes more sense than putting it in the question.

Not a complete answer, but this article is interesting and has a lot of big hitters described: wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/af127

comment Are normal infection cards still drawn after a player draws an epidemic card?
Also see the Common Pandemic Mistakes thread on BGG, which covers this question, among others.

comment If more than one user is on a twist phase do they each draw their own phase?
No problem. One option is to flag if you don't want to make the request so prominent.

comment A board game called PALM BEACH or something to that effect
+1: That's incredibly obscure - your Google-fu is very strong.
