Episode 36: Encounter Cards

You're a pro-slayer. You can find clues for days. Spells? You know em! And yet, every so often, you find yourself tapping out because you may be a beast at Arkham Horror, but the encounter deck has your number. Join Peter and Frank in this episode of Drawn to the Flame as they look at the encounter deck, with a particular eye on the keywords of cards most commonly found in that deck. What does surge do? How do you retaliate? And what on earth is peril (don't ask your friends)? All this and more...

Episode 33: Arkham Horror - An Introduction

Hello listener! Perhaps you've never heard of Arkham Horror The Card Game, or maybe you're new even to the idea of an LCG (Living Card Game). If so, this is the episode for you: join Peter and Frank as they talk about collectable card games, Lovecraftian cosmic terrors, Arkham Horror and how Drawn to the Flame fits into that. Consider this an episode 0, the episode you point the uninitiated towards when you want to lure them into the dark rituals at the heart of this brilliant game...

Episode 32: Approaches to Play

Hey listener! Drawn to the Flame has a new SPOILER POLICY: Peter and Frank will flag up, at the start of each episode, what they intend to talk about. The core set is always fair game and the most recent cycle is usually fair game, too. Peter and Frank remembered to mention it this time around, so it's at the start of the episode. 

In this episode, join Frank and Peter in their quest to be continually helpful, this time by aiding you in improving your play. As a sort of sequel to episode 16, which was all about deckbuilding, this episode is a discussion filled with tips and tricks to go from being mostly a grisly mess on the ground, destroyed by the horrors formed of dark rites and foul incantations, to only slightly bloodied and still pretty sane... which is an improvement, right? How should you spend those actions? What's better, a card or a resource? And how does prey work again? All this in the ep. Plus white-furred doom creatures.

Episode 31: First Steps on the Path to Carcosa

Hey listener! Drawn to the Flame has a new SPOILER POLICY: Peter and Frank will flag up, at the start of each episode, what they intend to talk about. The core set is always fair game and the most recent cycle is usually fair game, too (just so you know, in future).

In this episode, join Frank and Peter as they reflect on the new investigators from the Path to Carcosa, try to get their heads around Hiding Spot (nope, still stumped) and touch on their very first, very initial impressions of Curtain Call and The Last King. Has their sanity remained intact? Spoiler: nope.

Episode 30: AAA

The Path to Carcosa deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game is out now. What secrets does it hold? How will it change how investigators approach the challenges of the mythos? And just which new investigators will be doing said approaching? Join Peter and Frank as they continue to look at the new player cards from the latest deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror. In this episode, Peter and Frank take a (nearly) first look at the last player cards added to the game.

SPOILER POLICY: The player cards of the most recent pack (The Path to Carcosa) are fair game (and that's what's discussed in this episode). We try to stay one pack behind in terms of encounter card spoilers (Lost in Time and Space).
