Episode 228: How to Make a Splash

October 14, 2021

Join Peter and Frank for a discussion of 'splash' or off-class cards, those limited-in-number but high-in-impact (hopefully) cards that certain investigators have as part of their deckbuilding. We're talking Dunwich and Edge of the Earth and thinking about how to optimise the off-class influence.

Episode 221: Think on your Feet XXXI

Episode 221: Think on your Feet XXXI

August 19, 2021

Join Frank for Think on your Feet XXXI, in which Mateo returns to The Boundary Beyond and Heart of the Elders.

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.

I spotted two errors. At 33mins, I didn't add a doom to a Hand of the Brotherhood. I did then kill it, so I don't think it made an impact, but it was a mistake. At 53mins, I draw a hex and forget to trigger Chapultapec Hill's reaction. Whoops!

Join Frank and Peter for a conversation with Andrew Navaro, founder and creative director of Earthborne Games, the first offering of which, Earthborne Rangers, is a cooperative card game set in the far future that's on Kickstarter right now. We talk to Andrew about how the game plays (including character creation, winning and losing and other game mechanics), what he learned about cooperative card games from his decade at FFG, why sustainability matters and what inspired this game, among much else!

Episode 219: Multiplayer and Solo

Episode 219: Multiplayer and Solo

July 22, 2021

What's the difference between multiplayer and solo? Do we do Arkham a disservice by treating both game types as the same? Could we improve as players if we had more clarity around what each game type offers? Join Frank and Peter as they explore these and other questions.
