    1. There is a tendency in short luck-heavy games to require you to play multiple rounds in one sitting, to balance the scores. This is one such game. This multiple-rounds "mechanic" feels like an artificial fix for the problem of luck. Saboteur 1 and 2 advise the same thing because the different roles in the game are not balanced. ("Oh, well. I had the bad luck to draw the Profiteer character this time. Maybe I'll I'll draw a more useful character in round 2.") This doesn't change the fact that you are really playing a series of short unbalanced games. Scores will probably even out... statistically speaking. The Lost Cities card game tries to deal with the luck-problem in the same way.

    1. But even when both milk and sugar are taken out of the equation, chocolate appears to play a role in pimple formation.

      "Future studies with a larger study group using dark chocolate as well as specific components of chocolate, such as the flavonoids coupled with more diligent documentation of the participants' diets and menstrual cycles may provide valuable and comprehensive dermatology guidance to acne patients" (Delost, Delost, & Lloyd, 2016).

    2. Interestingly, jelly beans didn't have an effect on acne. But when people ate chocolate, their pimples increased.

      The pimples increased with "the chocolate consumption group [having] a statistically significant (P < .0001) increase in acne lesions (+4.8 lesions) compared with the jellybean consumption group (−0.7 lesions)" (Delost, Delost, & Lloyd, 2016).

    3. All patients received both "treatments."

      When they say all patients received both treatments they are referring to the "Crossover analysis was done 4 weeks later. There was no statistically significant difference in the number of acne lesions between the 2 groups when the crossover occurred (P = .322), which demonstrates adequate washout from the first part of the study" (Delost, Delost, & Lloyd, 2016).

    4. glycemic load

      "The link of chocolate to acne vulgaris was replaced by the theory that a high glycemic index may contribute to acne vulgaris. In this study, we attempted to revisit the controversial topic by assessing the development of new acne lesions following ingestion of chocolate versus a nonchocolate candy with a similar glycemic load." (Delost, Delost, & Lloyd, 2016).
