Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Sugar & Dice, and Crowtel Renovations - Ep29

April 15, 2017


It's Sam (@MrSamTurner) and Peter (@XeroXeroXero) hosting Episode 29 of the show so - shock! horror! - there's plenty of chat about intricate card games and curious indie video games.

The pair discuss their first impressions of Fantasy Flight's excellent RPG and LCG hybrid Arkham Horror: The Card Game, examining how it avoids ludonarrative dissonance through smart use of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.

Sam's visited Sugar & Dice, a superb board game cafe in Liverpool. This then makes for a good excuse to talk about why venues like this are so positive for fans of dice and meeples.

Meanwhile, Peter's been playing Crowtel Renovations from SinksAdventure, in which you guide a hotel owner (that is a crow) through multiple stages of strikingly thoughtful platforming.

If that weren't enough, there's also chat about hot new multiplayer video game Borderlands 2 from 2K Games and Gearbox Software on PS4, the correct pronounciation of David Guetta, a growing obsession in Forensic Files and a totally real person called Cindy Pancake.

As noted in the intro, if you'd like to vote for us in the British Podcast Awards (which is super quick and easy to do) then head to to do exactly that. We'd really appreciate it!
