Mac and Linux Civilization VI players get pleasantly surprised with the release of the game’s Rise and Fall expansion pack the month after their Windows brethren, but there’s a catch; then, a typo invoking an English language idiom leads to ”messing” with the ”priorities” of the game’s Artificial Intelligence… but to what end?
19m03s | Open Mic
Two-time guest co-host Brandon “bcaiko” Keith Hallmark calls, and messages, the show’s panel for their take on his disappointment that is the base game of CivVI and whether or not its R&F expansion pack could compel him to return to the title.
41m05s | Miscellaneous
In February, Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Senior Producer Andrew Frederiksen and Lead Designer Anton Strenger chart the course of its development from earliest prototype to commercial release.

Puppy agreement, and filling in CivVI eras for more unit upgrades.
