BGB Podcast #66 – The Only Winning Move

Strange game.

Dominant strategies can ruin a game; if there’s one clear best way to win, why not use it every time? We discuss these optimal strategies, whether they’re always problematic, and how to deal with them at your game table. Before we break the game, we talk about A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians, Lost Cities: Rivals, and Second Chance.
