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!
The final GeekNights lecture from PAX East 2011, we discuss winning (and not the Charlie Sheen kind). Specifically, we discuss how one actually wins at games, what winning really means, and why so few people are very good at it. In the words of Herm Edwards: "You play to win the game."
A warning: out primary audio device failed near the very end of the video, forcing us to switch to the backup. The last ten minutes of the lecture will be available as soon as we can master said audio to be reasonably understandable.
