comment How important is Bankroll Management in Texas Hold'em Poker, and why?
I play with 50 buy-ins (of 100 big blinds), comfortably (cash games, 6-max). Otherwise, great advice.

comment Who's first in a battle in Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game (from 2010)?
Death check is when a card is played to a battle-front and at the end of the battle (see in the rules where it talks about putting the card under the unit stack).

comment Are the A-sides and B-sides of the wonder boards really balanced?
I didn't mean to say the game is self-balancing. In fact, 7 wonders (like many games) is one that can turn early small advantages into big victory point swings without the ability for opponents to do much about it. From a game theoretic sense, it's quite interesting as, even if a neighboring player could do something about an advantage, its often still rational not to, since it would hurt you (relative to all other players) more than it would help him.

comment Does card-counting work in online Blackjack?
A good source of evidence supporting this claim is the lengths to which people go to reverse engineer the random algorithm used on online sites. Consider this paper: cigital.com/papers/download/developer_gambling.php It's talking about guessing the RNG seed value. While THIS type of cheating is possible, it's not card counting.

comment Am I allowed to use archaic words in Quiddler/Scrabble?
However, I highly suggest ninjawords.com instead of dictionary.com Especially if you're playing something that wants obscure words like Balderdash.
