Lewis interviewed Richard and Dawn Savidge about the game Sabatu, a strategy game of conquest based in ancient Persia. Sabatu is the ancient Akkadian word for laying siege or conquest.

and the Sabatu facebook page.
After the interview, Lewis and I played in a game of Sabatu. I jumped to an early lead, taking a capital and quickly building walls, but I could not hold my position. The armies of Lewis marched in and stole victory from my grasp.
