  1. Episode 371: 3MA After Dark

    @cornchipI think it's a different story from chess, even if the focus is simply on partnership play and bidding. But yes, it's challenging to do an episode without someone acting as an ambassador on the podcast.
  2. Episode 371: 3MA After Dark

    I created an account for the sole purpose of begging you to do a bridge episode on 3MA. As a long time fan of all types of games, I've recently jumped back into bridge with a passion after learning the game from my parents two decades ago. Bridge seems almost tailor-made for the modern strategy gamer: teamwork and communication (bidding), tactics (finesse, hold up play), strategy (sacrifices, when to push for game, when to go for overtricks vs. play it safe) and a thriving metagame (bidding conventions). The big innovation (obviously this not recent, but feels unique among games now) is playing duplicate -- this means you are judged based on how you play the _same_ cards as other people. This leads to a game that has imperfect information (the cards your opponents have) but very little luck (you are judged based on how well you handle the _same_ imperfect information as others). Well, obviously, I like bridge. I think your audience (and you) might as well.
