Re: Can someone explain me why someone conceeds in his final turn?

What's the problem with conceding? Sometimes it's just not worth the charade of playing the turn out e.g. by making totally random moves. It is common practice for chess players to concede in matches, it's hardly "childish".

Khronos suggestion

I just started a game then accidentally hit "end my turn" immediately, without yet doing anything at all. I had to propose abandoning it as there is no point in continuing to play. It would be helpful if there was an "Are you sure? There are still actions you can do" warning pop-...

Possible tournament bug?

In this tournament, a lot of games in a few rounds are draws: https://en.boardgamearena.com/#!tournament?id=15880 But draws in Tash-Kalar are very very rare (as there are 2 tiebreakers), and when I tried to replay the games I got a weird notice: "Game abandoned: Game has been closed automatical...

Re: Khronos

I think Matagot used to have an instructional video that was helpful but I can't find it anymore :(

Yeah, the game is not especially grokkable from the rules as printed. I've played it twice, once in person and once online, and remain largely mystified.

Automatic assigning of dice

I really enjoy the new (Beta) implementation of this game. That said, it's frustrating that dice are automatically assigned for actions such as Consume, Trade, or Stock. For instance, in a game where I had Alien Archeology ($4 rather than $2 if you Stock with alien dice) I tried to Stock and it sele...

Re: Hanabi: color save - number play

The reason this is a bad idea is that it's much more useful to identify multiple cards of one colour (because some of them may ALSO be subsequently playable, or if you complete a suit they are ALL discardable for clues), whereas if you identify, say, all the 3s in someone's hand all they know is tha...

BGA Wiki link

Am I missing it, or is there no obvious way to go directly to the BGA wiki? I usually have to open up a game of mine, go to the How To Play/Strategy tab, click through to the wiki for that page, then navigate to the wiki page I actually want to consult or edit. Is there a faster route I'm missing? I...

Re: Starvation strategy abusers

That's entirely an issue with flaws in the original game design, not BGA's implementation. They are playing legally.

Re: Randomizer Flawed?

That is something that actually is characteristic of random sequences, so it is a good sign not a bad one.
