In Stackexchange.arqade, people can't ask questions about "why" developers made certain decisions (ex: "why is the max level in Final Fantasy 99?" would be considered off topic).
Therefore, my question is - should similar questions about board games be considered off topic?
The example I have is here: Building Limit in Lords or Waterdeep
Now, I personally think the asker intended on asking about the rules of the game, rather than asking why the game was made that way. However, others disagree.
If the linked question is about why the game was made that way, isn't that off topic? I mean, the answers are endless:
- Developers thought 9 would be the maximum feasible number
- Manufacturers only had room on one cardboard sheet to make tokens.
- Developers all picked an arbitrary number and went with an average.
- 9 was the lead developers favorite number.
