comment Red Combo decks in Magic the Gathering?
There are combos in every colour, and in every combination of colours. The Making Magic article on the three main player profiles - Timmy, Johnny and Spike - even mentions a red card (Radiance) in the "Johnny" profile, which is the one most interested in making crazy combos.

comment Are there any house rules for combining Munchkin and Fluxx?
I'm not going to say it's impossible, but "they are both casual games that derive their fun from their theming" is not actually an argument for why the games might be combinable.

comment Why is Sunken Hollow a rare?
That's true. Power was probably always a factor in rarity, but moving complexity to the rarer cards was a deliberate choice in NWO.

comment Can the Resistance Fighters use the fail card?
Yes. The rule as worded is completely unambiguous. It's not a case of "Resistance has no reason to", it's a case of "Resistance is not allowed to". If it was allowed, then the rule would state "Resistance and Spies may both use either Success or Fail, but Resistance probably shouldn't" or words to that effect.

comment Can the Resistance Fighters use the fail card?
Once again - in casual language, it's fine to say "I must call my sister" to mean "It would be a really good idea to call my sister" (although even in that context it makes you sound like a member of the British Royal family). However, in the context of a rulebook, particularly in the way the sentence itself is worded, "must" is to be read as an imperative. You can add in the contrast of the fact that the Spy may do something else. It's not a "you have to do this or you will lose", it's "you do not have an option to do otherwise".

In the context of stating rules, "must" is a directive. That section isn't talking about strategy, it's saying that Resistance must play success, Spies may play either.
