The Math of You


Episode 030: Magic the Gathering, Negative Capability and Phage the Untouchable, feat. Colin Mulkerin

Ep. 30

Game designer and co-host of the Smash Fiction podcast Colin Mulkerin is here to discuss Magic the Gathering. Along the way we discuss rejecting the rules and substituting your own, the sort of awakenings one can have watching an Austin Powers movie, and I get an honest-to-God Math of You exclusive that I’m really happy happened.  Signature Cocktail: The Crystal Gem  When the Crystal gem enters the barroom, if you didn’t order it, you lose the game. When the Crystal Gem is drank by a player, that player wins the game.  1.5oz tequila 3/4oz lime juice 1/4oz peach schnapps 1/3oz simple syrup 1/2oz blue curaçao Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, and dip in salt. Combine ingredients, except blue curaçao in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into glass. Using a straw or an eye-dropper. Garnish with a lime wedge.  Follow Colin on Twitter at @colinmulkerin, follow the show at @TheMathOfYou, and my wacky adventures at @lokified.
