The Mind, Fantasy Football, and Cities: Skylines - Staying In Episode 60
0:00 - Dan's going to be running a fantasy football league, and is hoping you'll take part! Prove him right by heading to fantasy.premierleague.com, nabbing an account, and entering 1089139-244175 as the code to get involved!
5:00 - Kris has gotten himself into a pickle with a christening card. No, we didn't think it was possible either.
22:17 - Yorkshire puddings and toffee sauce, the concept of “post-modern snacking”, and why you need to think like a child to truly appreciate genius.
28:15 - Look, yes, sure, we talk about Civilization V AGAIN in this episode, but it's a good game! Unless you're a complete beginner, which is one of the subjects around that title that we try and tackle.
37:30 - Another subject is how games can encourage you to learn through failure, and why that can work if done well, like in Cities: Skylines. Sam and Peter have been hard at work managing their citizens needs and wants in a manner that's got them thinking about whether a game can ever truly escape being “political”.
45:33 - “What would you dive into a pool of?” That's the question posed to us by @Adamski_UK via Twitter, and the answers are... well... you'll hear soon enough. And if you've got a question for the chaps then please DM them to us on Twitter or Facebook, or mail them via email@example.com
