comment In Killer Bunnies do you replace a very special card when played?
Excellent question. I do not believe the rules clearly address this point. It's my belief that you can only play SAVED very special cards on other people's turns (thus avoiding the question). You can write them here to get an official answer: killerbunnies.com/?page_id=292 The other 'fun' option is that playing a very special card from your hand is never replaced, so don't play too many of them that way! :)

For an added challenge, try the 5-player CMU/MIT version: georgejas.com/rook

comment How does Rook compare in difficulty to other trick-taking games?
This explains the game, but doesn't really address difficultly. I like the answer, perhaps enhance it with saying if the bullets make it easier or harder?

comment If I put a copper and add 4 more random cards into my hand from my starting deck, does it change the odds of getting the 5:2 split?
Please read my answer carefully. I said it changes the odds of any particular hand, not the combined odds of one of two hands. A 1st copper will increase the odds of getting any hand with more coppers. The question's been edited anyhow, so this point seems to be moot.

comment Does anyone have a way to modify Ticket to Ride to accommodate six people?
What does playing in pairs do? You and the person across from you each share a pool of trains of one color?

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.

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).
