What, another Ludology episode already?

In episode 3, Catch The Leader, Ryan and Geoff both opined that the turn order mechanic in Power Grid diminishes the overall experience.  This prompted a lot of passionate debate in the forums.

For this bonus episode, we are joined by listener and poster Tim Koppang, who defends this Catch the Leader mechanic as integral to the Power Grid experience, and essential to gameplay.

Episode 4 will be posted as scheduled, on March 20.

Regular Ludology episodes will be released every two weeks.

As an experiment, on the 'in between' weeks we are going to be releasing classic GameTek segments from The Dice Tower.  This is the very first GameTek that was ever aired, on the topic of luck, and like all GameTeks is about 5 minutes long.

This is purely 'bonus' content, and we will still be keeping to our regular two week release schedule.

Please drop by our BGG guild and let us know if you enjoy these bonus releases!
