comment What form of chess was played in seventh-century Arabia?
Interesting question. I played chess my self growing up in Lebanon. We call it "Chataranj," but the rules are not different. It's merely the Arabic name of the game. As for it being discouraged, that's news to me. People play backgammon and chess incessantly in the levant.

comment In Ticket to Ride USA, does obtaining longest continuous path of routes highly correlate with winning?
What you say makes sense, but my gut instinct tells me the correlation is not as high as we think. This strategy may be self-propagating; in that, most players choose their routes to win the longest route, whereas there exists other, more efficient routes to reach destinations. I started to think about this yesterday. This week I managed to win 8 games with having the longest route only once (different opponents, on the iPad). I usually calculate the shortest number of required steps and follow that pattern, making changes as they become necessary. I'm tempted to make this a side project.

comment In Ticket to Ride USA, does obtaining longest continuous path of routes highly correlate with winning?
I'm inclined to disagree. I'm Yet to decide whether it's worth the effort to calculate this. I'd need a sample of about 200 games assuming we're working out the correlation based on two variables. But then I'm tempted to include other variables such as number of players and number of tickets, perhaps tickets completed. Then there is the question of the board. I don't know if I could stomach 200 games of the US board. Stay tuned. I would need about 9 months to a year.

comment When should a player decide to fold in Texas Hold'em Poker?
Again, there's no solid rule. It depends what cards are out, what you have in your hand, etc... That's a topic within itself, but it comes with experience. Check this out: texasholdem-poker.com/odds
