    Doing the best they can. The one-hundred-and-ninety-fourth episode of PolyCast, "Ramble On", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and "MadDjinn" with returning guest co-host Morgan "KingMorgan". Carrying a runtime of 59m59s, the summary of topics is as follows:

    - 03m09s | Forum Talk
    Comparing Civilization V to Alpha Centauri at length.
    - 23m08s | Senate
    All about the "progressive warhorse" that is the Polish civilization brought to CivV via its Brave New World expansion pack.
    - 30m40s | Open Mic
    Taking in a different approach to an Autocratic Cultural Victory in CivV: BNW as described by "Karmah" in an email and reflecting feedback from Episode 191 of the show (33m47s).
    - 39m41s | Theatre
    An overpowering realization and a hoarding opponent (recorded for Episode 163).
    - 42m19s | Miscellaneous
    A humourous yet poignant look at whether or not to move your Settler from its starting position in CivV.

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    Legitimization through randomization, booking in advance, sales incentive and hope springs eternal.

    Yeah, what about tmit and makahlua? I'm guessing they still play, but not on video.

    TMIT hasn't played CivV in some time -- he does not have either expansion even. Maki is indeed still playing and has both expansions; like myself however, she does not do so on video (save TurnCast Live on both accounts).

    :) -- thanks for joining us again. Hopefully schedules will align for you to be back before an Episode 294... :D
