    Brilliant. Just Brilliant.

  2. Mellowcow,

    Wow, I never thought about the origins of TicTacToe.
    It’s surprising that such a simplistic game is barely 100 years old and also that there’s actually one person behind it who conciously invented/unified it. I would have thought it to be a group effort over several generations similar to fairy tales.

    Keep droning!

    (On a side note, is there any slim chance you might appear on the MTGCast interview series “The Men of Magic”? I know you’re a busy man, but it would really validate the whole effort.)

  3. DarkLordChuckles,

    You might enjoy this comic, first thing i thought of when listening to the cast: – who needs a computer when you have a map like that :-)

  4. Robin Russell,

    Well played sir. Well played.

  5. Christopher Hilton,


  6. Dan,

    I hate the extra letter expansions. Js are way overpowered!!

  7. Mike,

    Profoundly executed. I very much enjoyed this one.

  8. My iTunes queue and sync process meant I listened to this a few days later, so it wasn’t immediately obvious what you were doing. Not until the “Naughts and Crosses” competitor did I go “Really? Oh wait…”

    Nicely done.
