comment How can I beat “Big Money” in Dominion?
Re: Chapel "Trash copper in mid to late game to thin your deck" -- Trash copper as early and as aggressively as you can. By the time a Chapel has come up in your hand with all of your Coppers, you should have a couple Silvers and hopefully a Gold or two.

comment Correct/Recommended use of Masquerade in Dominion: Intrigue
Androminion is pretty new, and thus probably has bugs/errors. Isotropic is really good about adhering to the rules, and they do not reveal the cards.

comment Are the Goons un-fun?
Agreed. Any time any attack card comes up during setup, I evaluate it with the group I'm playing with (both whether they would enjoy it, and whether our group size would make the game too slow), and then replace it when necessary.

comment Dominion randomizer deck confusion
+1 for the "correct" answer (i.e. The answer given in the rules book), even if it makes no sense in practice. An empty pile leaves an empty space on the table... why fiddle with cards to "mark" them?

comment What happens if you steal an Elixir of Immortality and then use it?
Those are Magic cards? Wow, those have changed since I used to play back in the days of the Revised Edition.

comment Catan: when to buy development cards?
Very useful breakdown. I've never thought about how many resources each VP takes, but it's very helpful.

Giving other players a more powerful starting deck would hurt their ability to learn the general strategies of the game.

comment Any good way to add a handicap in Dominion?
For all the great ideas here, I think the simplest approach may be best. I can quietly remove a Province from my score pile at the end of the game (or more/less if its a high/low scoring game).

comment What are good games to play during a one-hour lunch break?
I should note you are limited to four players without the Intrigue expansion, and six with it. Also note that playing with four or more players, the game may take a little longer, usually around 45 minutes. But with the expansion or a couple copies of the game, it's easy to play multiple side-by-side games.
