comment Is kingmaking in multiplayer games a problem that can be fixed?
There are some other subtleties as well e.g. are the other players aware of the kingmaking deal or is it secret. Might also be worth mentioning collusion in games for money being tracked by pattern matching

comment In bridge, what are the proper followups to a Jacoby transfer?
Your last point is really important I think, with 1nt you have already told your partner pretty much everything you can, they are in the driving seat even though you may still end up as declarer

comment Why is the strong 1NT so prevalent in Bridge?
as with the escapes, its worth bearing in mind that weak/strong nt is not the only common difference between different sides of the pond, you really need to consider the other bids in the system as well

comment Games that can be played with just normal playing cards that are engrossing enough for a hardcore gamer
the information encoding and exchange element often is the game, with the play almost inevitable once dummies hand is seen. granted i can see how this would appeal more to meta-gaming fans and code geeks
