comment Which boardgames need expansion sets before they work properly?
+1 for pointing out a few games that feel like demos until you buy an expansion (Pandemic really comes into it's own once you have more jobs; I still haven't forgiven Settlers for insisting on selling me 5-6 player expansions for their expansions)

comment Implementing a map exploration mechanic cheaply
Non-square cards aren't really a drawback - they'll still fit into a grid fine (albeit a rectangular rather than square grid).

comment Can I sacrifice a permanent to pay an ability cost while the permanent's spell is still on the stack?
Worth noting that your opponent can't Bolt a creature that hasn't resolved yet for the same reason you can't sacrifice it - it's a spell while it's on the stack, not a creature.

@JoeZeng Another term for "unwilling participant" (or "sucker", depending on the playgroup)

comment Is there a best character in Button Men? Is there a worst character?
And on the "worst" side, even Dead Guy (0,0,0,0,0) wins against poison-heavy buttons. So, pretty sure there's no definitive worst Button Man.

That is so beautifully wrong and evil.

comment When you King's Court a King's Court, when must you pick the three target cards?
While I believe you are right, just because one game uses a stack doesn't mean that another game does.

comment What are good general strategies for Pandemic?
True, it all depends on how much effort it'll take to eradicate. (I've had a few games where it was pretty much "on the way" to get an early sunset; some games the color didn't come up much, some games became a cakewalk).

comment What are good general strategies for Pandemic?
re: eradicating - While I'll agree that eradicating is often not worth the effort, if you're lucky enough to be have the chance to cure and eradicate a color early game, it can be a massive help (and worth the detour).

comment How do you prevent deliberately losing in Republic of Rome?
That makes sense to me from a game balance perspective - it forces the lead players to hold back, lest a player falls out of contention and tries to force a draw. (Put the other way, no matter how far behind you are, you always have the option of playing for the draw by forcing Rome to fall.)

comment How much would the cards from Dominion: Alchemy cost if you wanted to use them while not playing with potions?
I could see Curses working well there (in a game that doesn't use them normally) - no risk of someone forgetting then!
