Luck vs Skill in Game Mechanics

In this edition of Gaming By Design Colin and Richard are looking at the balance between luck and skill in game mechanics. How can the balance between these two ends of the spectrum affect gameplay. Is luck in game mechanics a bad thing that should never be considered in design or can luck work? What effects can luck have? Using Mario Kart, Mario Party, Call of Duty, Split Second and many others as a reading list the duo once again aim to be entertaining, witty, informative and get you talking amongst yourselves. Don't forget to check the other podcasts in this series - this is just podcast 5 of 7.
