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).
