Episode 2406: Plan-It Error


Half the fun of making plans in games is seeing how they go wrong.

At least, you should aim to get at least half your fun than way, because they're pretty much going to go wrong half the time!

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Well, that explains that part. Pete thought they were playing a specific role as the kids rather than just playing a role. And Jim of course elects to focus on that side of winning. While I would say in almost every case, don't bet on both outcomes, Jim takes ignoring that to an artform. I'm pretty sure Jim wasn't just intentionally trying to make Finn and Rose win around what Pete was trying anyway. Pretty sure. Jim isn't great at subtle, but he does like it.


Casino Security pilot: Enjoy your winnings! Visit Canto Bight again!
Finn: We bet money we didn’t have, we rigged the race, and we won? Our plan worked?
Rose: Our plan worked.
Finn: Our plan worked!
Temeri Blagg: Our plans always work!
Oniho Zaya: Our plan didn’t work! Their plan worked! We had a different plan!
Temeri Blagg: What?
Arashell Sar: We gave them the wrong fathiers to bet on. But they led away the ones that we fixed to win.
Oniho Zaya: You agreed to it!
Temeri Blagg: Yeah, and they won. Great plan of mine.
Finn: One thing I don’t get. Normally you always support the party, Pete.
Oniho Zaya: We were very clearly introduced as adversary characters. It was our job to oppose you.
GM: Not necessarily. You could have helped them.
Oniho Zaya: I don’t understand.
