So basically some dude inputs the skills of everything, of every player, the results of everything, everything that happened ever, translates that into probability tables, and then – for fun – people pay money and they…test his math?”

One thing this hobby needs is more coverage in the mainstream board gaming audio/visual media on the web.
In this episode of “Cardboard!” we get to hear about sports board games from the perspective of a board gamer who doesn’t know a lot about sports. Though his “expert” (actor and podcaster Nate Corddry) on the tabletop-sports genre gets a lot of basic fact wrong (Strat-O-Matic invented in the late 60’s?), this episode brings a really fascinating perspective for those of us “die-hards” out there, and is worth a listen.
Still, it’s totally worth a 52 minutes of your time. Take a listen!
