Caleb, a good friend of Tamed Beast Games (and game problem-solver par excellence), works out the probability of various agents succeeding in the end game in Zoospionage, a current project. I was always a humanities guy, but man do I wish I had applied myself a little more in mathematics! Would have come in handy with these kinds of calculations. And no, we didn’t quite get the probability equation figured out, but this was a good intermediary step as we try to put it together. Fun!
The moral: stay in school and learn your mathematics. For probably lots of reasons, but maybe board game design will be one of them.
