The SnakesCast

Bite-sized bits about board games from the game gurus at Snakes and Lattes

  • Luck vs. Skill

    The age-old question

    Most games have a mix of skill and luck in them, but why do some players prefer games that are mostly luck, and others mostly skill? Why should luck-lovers bother to look into skill games, and why should people who hate luck in games give it a chance? And most importantly of all is the distinction between the two as clear-cut as it appears?
