comment How should I approach teaching Magic:The Gathering to a new player?
I had success in the past with making successive ses of learning decks. Start with 1 color, basic land and only creatures. Then add in enchantments. Then sorceries. Then instants, then two colors, then artifacts.

comment How can I make Shadows Over Camelot play better with 3 or 4 players?
Indeed. You may not draw cards at Camelot if you already have 12 or more cards. A common 7 player strategy is for everyone to fill their hands then white can quickly cycle the white deck. Of course, don't forget that you need to shuffle BOTH decks when you shuffle white.

comment Fluxx - What counts as a 'play'?
Cards already played this turn count toward the total.

comment Name of card game similar to hearts
With the additional details, I don't think it's Minnesota Whist, but it still might be fun to try.

comment What can dead Werewolves players be doing?
Seems like an opportunity for further enhancement than a problem. Consider (1) Exorcising the ghosts as a particular action to be taken in the day (or night), that either costs the villagers or the wolves extra time. Consider also special role cards that could come into play ONLY if someone is a ghost...

comment How to reduce slow starts at the beginning of the game?
Rules to check that you're playing correctly: (1) Initial settlement selection goes 1st player, 2nd player, 3rd player, 3rd player, 2nd players 1st player. (2) Second settlement chosen gets all three resources it touches before play begins. (3) you can trade in 4 of one resource for any other. In the scenario your describe it would be very unlikely for a player to not be able to make a trade (with players, then the bank) to get his brick.

comment How can I play Dominion with 5+ players without expansions?
Anyhow people, just try it, it's tons of fun, everyone reshuffling, playing, going all at once. It's mayhem, but unlike normal dominion doesn't drag at all.
