BGTG 95 - SR & Feedback (Container & Chicago Express)

Whoops! I almost let two months go by since my last show. I've been playing plenty of games, so here's a session report & feedback show to describe my inability to play economic games with any skill! But as badly as I've been doing at them, I'm still interested. In fact, I'm even more interested in the games because it feels like there's something everyone else understands about their strategy . . . that I don't! Two plays of one game, four plays of the other, and I'm still struggling. What I really need is for someone to make a play-by-web version of either of these games, then I could really practice. (I've gotten pretty good at Brass that way.)

The previous few episodes generated a ton of great feedback, and that's what I really wanted to share on the podcast. Keep 'em coming--all of your podcasters love feedback.

Great to see another podcast.

I played in that Container game with you, and although a misunderstood rule did make the game go long, I realized that as the strategy was becoming apparent, I was caring less. So, I never exactly grokked the game, mainly because it just wasn't interesting enough.

Great bits though.
