GCR is doing something brand new -- attending Northwest Indiana's first ComiCon, and exploring all the nooks and crannies. We'll have a report for you before we break into the "meat" (but not meth) of the episode.

Would you consider yourself a Min/Max'er? A Munchkin? A power-gamer? Do you enjoy learning the rules of a game, only to find every loophole possible to turn it into YOUR game? Or, is the opposite true -- do you focus on creating a game that (hopefully) no one can break?

If so, then listen as the GCR crew discusses the nuances of breaking games. We'll discuss how players find ways to break a game to fit with how they want to play and find out more about how game creators plug up those proverbial loopholes. We'll also explore broken video games (and video game characters), board/card games, and how Magic: The Gathering tournaments try to avoid broken cards/combos.
