GeekNights presented "How to Win at Games" at PAX East 2011. As part of the lecture, they went into great detail as to how to win at "Stratego" and "Settlers of Catan." Unfortunately, as the audio device on stage failed during the lecture, the latter will not be available online.
Here is the conclusion to the panel. Apologies for the audio: it was the best that could be done. Be sure to catch the bulk of the event in this Youtube channel!
