AGC 106 June 30 2009 (Your Cheating Heart) (1:17:17)

With Mark Kinney, Carol, Mags, and Steve. Mark goes into a little more detail on HyperiCon and shows the panel his copy of Personal Effects. Carol talks about Living Labyrinth. What is cheating, and why would someone cheat? "Allowed" cheating in Illuminati and Kill Puppies For Satan. GM cheating and "fudging." How do you confront cheating at the table? Cheating methodologies. Point fudging. Fun with movement. Hidden resources. Notes and knowledge. Cheating with cards, from shuffles to messing with the draw. A trivial aside on card counting and various accounts of the MIT Blackjack Team. Dice rolling methods. Hard to read dice. Non-standard and weighted dice. Would you believe microwaved? (And how about a Mythbu... er, we mean Legend Smashing episode?) Mark brings up Wolfram Alpha, and throws a shout out to Kicked in The Dicebags. It's time to get us back in the spotlight, listeners!
