In this episode we talk about all manner of gaming goodness, from our recent gaming to some interesting news bits. We also introduce a brand new Strategy segment (which desperately needs your help finding a new name!). Our main segment focuses on the randomness, luck and chaos in games - and just what we mean by those terms, which get tossed around the hobby quite a bit. Just watch out for the cat in that ding n' dent copy of Settlers of Catan.

A note about the sound quality: We experienced several problems while recording and editing the podcast, resulting in poor sound quality throughout the episode. We are sorry for this, and the next episode will be back up to our usual standards.
