The second trio of ‘As and Against’ CivVI civilization rundowns: China, Egypt (17m19s) and England (24m58s).
31m55s | Miscellaneous
Steps forward and steps still to take as the first Civilization VI eSports tournament undertaking is examined following its conclusion.
47m54s | Open Mic
Drawing the line between too much and not enough (constructive) criticism for CivVI following a suggestion that the show doesn’t have enough, and answering an email asking about “which civs and playstyle are best for each play speed” in the game (51m41s).

Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
Unconventional beginning, second in separation and questionable recollection.
