Ryan, thanks for the heads up. I just subscribed. I'm looking forward to the Tichu episode. (The rules just don't do that one justice.)

I actually ended up slightly confused by your podcast. You say something like this at one point, "you each take turns placing people tokens on actions and you do that twice each round". You started to make me think that each round you get to lay your people tokens twice. When really I think, it's just once for each person token you have on your farm, each round. Overall it's a nice podcast but it left me seeking more info.

Thanks for the feedback.

One of the challenging things I'm finding is I have to be very precise in my language, so as not to confuse people, I try scripting and editing as much as possible but probably still end up with a few confusing phrases such as the one above.
