Skill Compensation, Randomness, and the lifespan of games with Brett Lowey
My favorite of Brett’s games, Solar Settlers

Hello again! This here is probably the most nitty gritty strategy game design podcast episode I’ve had on the show yet, which is made possible because I have a shared language and understanding with today’s guest. This guest, by the way, is none other than Brett Lowey, who has been on the podcast several times before. I also talk a little bit up front about my recent experiences with Magic: The Gathering, which I’ll give some more updates on in the future.

Don’t forget to check out all of Brett’s games over at!
