comment Can a card be un-cast, if the player realises it was a bad decision?
@Jefromi I've seen instances of people playing cards in tournaments not realizing that it won't do what they expect (due to card interactions or just a mental misfire). So it's possible for this to happen in a game where the results matter.

comment What are some good tactics for the early game in Risk?
+1 for the buffer - it's always better to have the fight on their continent rather than yours. :)

comment What tap effect has priority?
Mini-answer: as a general rule, tap-as-cost will trump tap-as-effect. (I'm sure there's corner cases where that's not true)

comment How compatible are the two versions of Netrunner?
Looking at the two example cards, isn't the only real difference that it now costs a credit/bit? (Going from 0 to 1). That's relatively minor.

Doesn't the new version have the additional rule that you can't steal tiles from people in Countryside Acres?

comment Does ice ever break in Netrunner?
@Twitch_City That could be an answer in itself - there is definitely an ebb/flow to the game.

comment Are you required to call a judge if you're not involved in the game?
Yep - probably to dodge the question of "how do you punish a spectator?"

comment Advice on acquiring / constructing Dice Towers
I have one of the Chessex portable boots. I can't speak to the felt on the deflectors, but you really want some sort of softer surface on the bottom to prevent dice bouncing out the end (I usually use a pad of paper)

comment What's the impact of allowing other players to continue while you choose tickets?
I wouldn't say it's underhanded - if there are two players playing by that rule then you'll always have to wait, and then it's even. (We play contrary-wise - you always keep going, so everyone is getting the same advantage)

comment What can dead Werewolves players be doing?
Usually in long games the dead around here just kibitz. (It's quite easy to be entertaining and yet not "contribute". :) )
