    Seemingly out of nowhere. The one-hundred-and-twentieth episode of PolyCast, "Pounce Like a Tiger", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick and "Makahlua" with returning guest co-host Ricardo "r_rolo1" Rolo and first-time guest co-hosts John "LzPrst" Ftonnessen and Rob "flitcraftrz" Zacny; it has a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 01m44s | Forum Talk (Part 1 of 2)
    Critiquing Civilization V's National Wonders to come up with a "best of" list, with the National College in a steady lead.
    - 24m20s | Miscellaneous
    An extension on the first topic, debating the merits of a 'Tall' (fewer, larger cities) versus a 'Wide' (more, smaller cities) empire in Civ with an emphasis on its fifth iteration.
    - 38m04s | Forum Talk (Part 2 of 2)
    On a call for the removal of the minimum 1-hitpoint damage in attack in CivV.

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    For one guest, peer pressure and persistence put him on a path to having Civilization become hist favourite gaming series... and he plays, and discusses, a lot of strategy games.

    PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

    Will you guys be doing strat guides/discussions, etc for Civ V soon? It looks like at the moment you guys are doing more rankings/discussion of general theory (tall vs. wide) etc, which is fine, but.....

    Maybe post-patch? It is admittedly difficult to provide strategy for a game that changes drastically every 2 months.

    It is indeed the last sentence of your post above that underscores a major reason why we haven't focused much on CivV strategy over the past couple of months. The next upcoming patch is going to be a -- if not the -- focus of the next episode we record. Strategic discussions once it's released will no doubt follow.
