Can't wait for Wednesdays!

I'm starting to look forward to Wednesdays just to hear the next podcast!

This episode got me thinking about if it's possible to come up with a mechanic that eliminates the possibility of cheating in a hidden movement game. I haven't come up with anything yet, but if that hasn't been accomplished yet in a board game, that means we as designers might have some uncharted territory out there!

So true! I really look forward to this each week!

As far as the no cheating aspect of hidden movement games, that would be great to find a way to do that. Until then we just have to keep coming up with excuses not to play with those cheaters.
