comment Firefly Boardgame: Amnon Duul solid bonus (Travel Hub) benefits
It gets even funnier if you're running two jobs that have "no limit" loads (going in the same direction past the Bazaar). You can drop off a full load at one, jump to the Bazaar and grab a full load for the other. :)

comment Does the order that cards are played have any effect? (Specifically poison)
Worth noting that's it is fairly common for games (beyond MtG) to use the "add it all up and then apply floor" method. (I think Munchkin does it that way, to name a second)

comment How many is “A bunch”?
@SamIam I don't see why - the goal here is to avoid giving away information. Specifically, that asking for the specific number gives away that you have an answer in hand (and that you haven't been asking when you don't have an answer). Asking for the details everytime (whether you care about the answer or not) means that they don't get additional information, beyond that you're a stickler for the rules.

@SamIam Not necessarily - if you always ask for clarification, then the opponent doesn't gain information on whether the answer matters particularly in this instance. (Maybe you have the Charm this time, maybe you don't. If you ask both times, they don't know if this is the one they should worry about).

comment How many is “A bunch”?
It's "underhanded" because you're trying for a "gotcha" moment. I don't think it's Bad per se, since you're simply using the same trick they're using. But making them walk through the motions every time is the smarter play, since it can force them to play around cards you don't have (not to mention just proper play).

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.
