Things of note around this inter-web:
Incidentally, I’ve played several Padawans recently [it's early to be crowning Jedi] and had reasonable success. I’ll probably write up some more thoughts in a few weeks.
Ekted argues that Simultaneous decisions equals randomness. I don’t prefer to call it random, but that’s really just semantics. Game Theory (sweet, sweet game theory) posits that optimal play usually involves picking the selections randomly with proper odds. In most interesting systems. So the system isn’t strictly random, but it’s effectively random, which is what counts.
Someone’s got an alternate dice tower advocating Advanced Squad Leader. For a second I thought I’d entered Bizarro-land.
Barnes & Noble’s 75% sale got me a few games. OK, a spare War of the Ring set (which I could sell or trade, or keep in case I ever decide to paint a set, or need spare parts). And several games too terrible to mention on a family site. Or even here. Too bad there were no copies of Doom or Descent left. I’d buy them at $15….
I have weird conversations with my daughter, too. None like this, though.
