  This week Fletcher is on his honeymoon, but Kitty is back (with a slightly raspier voice).  So while Fletcher is away, Chris and Kitty talk about bad players.  Pure coincidence.  So what is a bad player?  Can it be fun to be a bad player?  And do we have fun playing with or against bad players?  All that and a banter section that lasts about 15 minutes and covers all kinds of going ons.

  This week Chris and Fletcher are alone again as they talk about rewriting the rules to games.  That could mean rewriting a whole rulebook to make it clearer, writing rules summaries, modifying the game with your own rules, or even making up an entirely new game with the components of a game you didn't find all that great to start with. Speaking of rewriting rules, check out www.orderofgamers.com for some amazing rules summarizes.
