comment Do Race for the Galaxy expansions allow more players without changing the base game's rules?
@Jefromi Yes, I was specifically thinking about Prestige. Good idea to add 1VP per prestige card.

comment Can you counter a Land in Magic the Gathering?
Note that playing a land does not use the stack, and cannot be responded to. Therefore a player playing a land does not pass priority and may tap it immediately for mana and cast something before someone tries to destroy/bounce it to slow development.

comment Can a well-timed Twisted Image kill a player using Tree of Redemption?
Hey, don't be sorry, detailed explanations are what's necessary to clarify why the cards interact that way. :)

revised In Magic, when and why did the rules change to check life totals “continuously” instead of at the end of each phase?

comment Do you die instantaneously if your life total hits 0?
@StuartCook Actually, the change was made for Sixth Edition, so Spirit Link was reprinted five times after this change, even though it was made significantly weaker. The Lifelink keyword was introduced in Future Sight on two spells from the future when evidently new magic spell technology "fixed" Spirit Link. :) Thus, Spirit Link was replaced by Lifelink in the next M10 base set.

comment System for secretly choosing between two options?
Another point, if it's only two choices you could use multiple cards. Heck, just use a standard deck of 52 cards and have black suits signify one choice and red suits the other.

comment System for secretly choosing between two options?
I don't think the system of using cards should be dismissed so quickly. Race for the Galaxy uses this method and it works well. Remember, these cards won't need to be shuffled or handled much, so they're not as easily marked. Even if they are, on could be easily chosen discretely, under the table or with back turned, and then covered with a hand before the reveal.

Also remember this can be easily extended to multiple options by having multiple coins. A player under the table or with his back turned chooses a coin, hides the rest in a bag or box or whatnot and holds the chosen option hidden in hand.
