Episode 151: Think on your Feet XX

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XX, in which Norman Withers continues his ventures against witches and the Silver Twilight Lodge in The Circle Undone.

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 some 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. 

At 1hr 4minutes, I give myself two resources in upkeep (I jump from 6 to 8). I don't believe it has any impact on the rest of the scenario, but still... cheatz! And then I do it again right near the end (3 to 5!). What is going on? I'll tell you what: I'm busy chatting about what card's on the top of Norman's deck and not noticing giving myself resources on auto-pilot. Luckily, on neither occasion does it have an impact on what I could or couldn't play. But yeah!

Episode 149: Think on your Feet XIX

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XIX, in which we embark on a new campaign with a new investigator! 

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 some 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. 

Edit: I'd written about how I made a misplay at 10 mins in here, but a canny listener has written in to tell me I'd not! So... consider the misplay struck from the record. 

Here's the Norman deck work-in-progress: CLICK ME

Episode 141: Diana Stanley

Join Frank and Peter as they look at another investigator for Arkham Horror. This time, it's the redeemed cultist. She was a Silver Twilight Lodge insider, but what she discovered in the inner reaches of the Lodge terrified her, and now she's out to stop them causing any more harm: Diana Stanley. Weak-willed but incredibly robust, Diana takes the fight back to the Mythos with her proclivity for cancellation.

Episode 137: Think on your Feet XVIII

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XVIII, in which Diana Stanley heads up to Sentinel Hill to stop a ritual... and maybe travels even further. 

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 some 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. 

At 50 minutes onwards, there's some sort of mic error. I've had it before, where it adds clicks and crackles to the line. I try to keep an eye on the audio track to reset or otherwise tweak the mic if I see it happening, but this time around, I didn't spot it. I'm really sorry; it sounds ghastly. After a chunk of time trying to fix it, I've edited out as many crackles as I can, but I can't do more. Sorry!

Episode 135: Think on your Feet XVII

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XVI, in which Diana, now in the village of Dunwich, investigates curious disappearances in the region and contends with an incomprehensible foe.

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 some 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. 

Early in this scenario I get it in my head that Deny Existence is called Ward of Protection. I'm really sorry about that; it's confusing to listen to when I can't work out which is which. They are both good cancellation cards, ok?! But when you hear me talking about cancelling damage or what not, it's Deny Existence. Sorry!
