Sirlin on Game Design, Ep3: Uneven Playfields

In this episode, we discuss uneven playfields in competitive games. That's when a competitive game gives some players a material advantage, rather than being fair. Although fairness should be a basic premise of a competitive game, MOST competitive games have unfortunately become uneven playfields, and players seem to accept this. That's tragic to Sirlin and Aphotix. 

Garcia1000 explains that his friends like kingmaker and collusion in games, which are usually considered bad properties.
