Is there a funny, weird or interesting thing you "learned" from board games? Here's the place to share it!

UPDATE: I will give away 100 on 30 October if there are at least 1,000 items in the list. I will draw 3 random numbers and each item with that number will receive 33.3 . (Obviously I won't tip myself so I'll draw again if the number would be my item.) The more items you add to the list the higher your chances are to win geekgold!

If there was going to be an explosion at the mine, if you walked out you were fine, but if you tried to run out, you could get blown up.

One of the Confederacy's biggest mistakes was putting Lee, Jackson, and J.E.B. Stuart all into the AoNV. That pretty much guaranteed one of them (in this case Jackson) would die if they fought a major battle.

Amazingly, both the Continental Army and the British Army (and the French, for that matter) in the American Revolution used EXACTLY the same tactical maneuvers that had been used by the Roman Legions on the German frontier some 1800 years earlier with totally different weapons.
(See previous item.)
