Welcome to the Colloquium on Games of Strategy.  Games of Strategy is a textbook on game theory written by Dixit (not the game), Skeath, and Reiley that we are reading to help improve our analysis of board games and board game design.  Paul Owen (owns 3rd edition) and I (own the 2nd and 1st editions) record a discussion about a chapter or two from the book every few weeks.

In the seventh episode we talk about zero sum games with mixed strategy nash equilibrium.  Highlights include a discussion on if a mixed strategy equilibrium takes away meaningful decisions from the players.
