In this episode we talk about the GIPF series of abstract games with our special guest Joe Gola. We get into general strategies for each of the games, and discuss issues such as balance and tension as it relates to each game.
As usual, our discussion assumes that you are already familiar with the games, so if you aren't, head over to BoardGameGeek and check them out there first. The Abstract Gamer podcast also has nice introductory episodes on YINSH and GIPF.
Jay is off this episode, but look for all three of The Metagamers to return to form in the next one.
