Episode 127: Frank's First Look at In the Clutches of Chaos

Join Frank for a first look of the player cards of In the Clutches of Chaos, the fifth mythos pack in The Circle Undone cycle. What ghastly revelations lurk within? Has Frank been studious in his evaluations, or is this just another day, another dollar kind of work?

Episode 126: Think on your Feet XV

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XV, in which we start a new campaign! That's right, after Finn's escapades in the jungle, we're back in the sleepy town of Arkham, and Diana Stanley's former mentor from Miskatonic University, a man called Henry Armitage, has asked her to look for two of his colleagues. We've returned to the Dunwich Legacy!

In Think on your Feet episodes, a live play series of Arkham Horror: The Card Game, I endeavour not to edit much at all. Sometimes I cut a bit of shuffling sounds or abbreviate some of my longer pauses (a chap's got to think!), but otherwise, it's uncut, unaltered and meant to feel like you're with me at the table. There may be mistakes and misplays, but hopefully some successes too.

Episode 125: Leo Anderson

Join Peter and Frank for a detailed consideration of everyone's favourite Guardian, Mr Grumpy himself! Whether he's berating his comrades or shooting everything in sight angry stares and muttered remonstrations, Leo Anderson is the man for the job (should you need a party ruined, a mood soured or general goodwill squandered). Your hosts talk about Leo's strengths, weaknesses and temperament.

Episode 124: Visions of Futures Past X

Join Peter and Frank for another Visions of Futures Past, this time with a card (a third card, no less!) from In the Clutches of Chaos, the fifth mythos pack in The Circle Undone. Need a favour from your favourite podcast? We're at your service, friend (as long as it's a small favo(u)r)!

Episode 123: Rita Young

Join Peter and Frank for another investigator-specific episode, this time about everyone's favourite athlete, Rita Young. In this episode, we talk about Rita's strengths and weaknesses, her speed and prowess, as well as expanding the discussion into what evasion's good for. We reference Motux's Strange Solution series on evasion, which begins here: https://strangesolution.wordpress.com/2018/03/05/flight-over-fight-part-one-misfire-the-problems-with-combat-in-solo/

Meanwhile, a major apology needs to be issued with this episode too: of all the 4-agility investigators, one gets mentioned zero times, and that is Skids O'Toole. It's led to a lot of conversations behind the scenes as Peter and Frank talk about the ex-con's place in the game and why he was forgotten. So watch this space...

Episode 121: Thoughts after the Expo

Join Frank and Peter for a short first thoughts after the UK Games Expo 2019, at which we did a day of demoing Arkham Horror, ran a double Guardians of the Abyss session and organised a How Low Can You Go (thanks Scott!) challenge run of Depths of Yoth. We reflect on what went well and how we can improve. Returning to usual Arkham-related content soon! 

We used Frank's back-up mic to record this episode, so the sound quality is a little lower.

Join Peter and Frank LIVE as they reveal two new cards from In the Clutches of Chaos, play a challenge with the audience and create plenty of dead air in the excitement of being LIVE in front of a LIVE audience for the first time. Did I mention this was a live ep? 

Apologies for the sound quality - and it's not as meticulously edited as usual episodes – but hope you enjoy it all the same!

Join Peter and Frank for a discussion of the new List of Taboos, an additional feature added to Arkham Horror in the most recent update for the FAQ. Cards have been limited, mutated and (not quite) forbidden, and your hosts want to get their heads around the changes and what impact they'll have.

Episode 115: Think on your Feet XIV

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XIV, in which Finn Edwards is back in the jungle, ready to get snakebit once again! (Just kidding, he's too slippery for snakes!)

In Think on your Feet episodes, a live play series of Arkham Horror: The Card Game, I endeavour not to edit much at all. Sometimes I cut a bit of shuffling sounds or abbreviate some of my longer pauses (a chap's got to think!), but otherwise, it's uncut, unaltered and meant to feel like you're with me at the table. There may be mistakes and misplays, but hopefully some successes too. 

Some errors I spotted in the edit: I think I took 6 actions at about 18 minutes. Not that they did me much good, but still! I think that was it, except... maybe... well, no spoilers, listen to the last scenario! Would love to know what you think of it!

Episode 113: Exileptional

Join Peter and Frank as they settle down to talk about two card keywords: exile and exceptional. These cards are the domain of the survivor and (predominantly) the rogue factions, each affecting how the factions spend xp and how investigators might choose to upgrade their decks. Your hosts run through the cards and explore the impact they've had on the game.

Episode 112: Basic Weaknesses

Join Peter and Frank as they open up (at last) and talk about their failings, foibles and, ultimately, their weaknesses. Whether it's their fear of how the community perceives them or their forgetfulness of how the community perceives them or their desperate need for the community to perceive them, weaknesses are at the heart of Arkham Horror: The Card Game, and your hosts are keen to plumb their depths!

Episode 110: Think on your Feet XIII

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XIII, in which Finn Edwards is back in Arkham, never to head to the jungle again! 

In Think on your Feet episodes, a live play series of Arkham Horror: The Card Game, I endeavour not to edit much at all. Sometimes I cut a bit of shuffling sounds or abbreviate some of my longer pauses (a chap's got to think!), but otherwise, it's uncut, unaltered and meant to feel like you're with me at the table. There may be mistakes and misplays, but hopefully some successes too. 

Some errors I spotted in the edit: I think I failed to let Shadowed surge at 16 minutes, so I missed an encounter card. Doh! I also can't count, and missed an action (I believe) at around 30 minutes - so a little bit of shortchanging myself there. At 1 hour almost on the dot, I add a weakness to my threat area rather than shuffling it into my deck. Whoops! At 1hr10 I'm definitely losing it: I draw Caught Red-Handed and only move 1 enemy? What's got into me? Holy hell! at 1hr11 I forget to draw an encounter card too! I was clearly losing it at that point... !!

There may be mistakes and misplays, but hopefully some successes too. 

Some errors I spotted in the edit: I think I shortchanged myself an action at 26 minutes. Finn snoozes, Finn loses! Not much I can do about that. But then at 56 minutes I used torches twice in a bit of a shonky way, so a bit of a leg up there. Whoops! And then at 1hr14 I skipped upkeep! Like a loon! Doh!
