  • Anarch /= Noise.

2 Champs and a Chump- Episode 89

2 Champs and a Chump 2C1C Kennon


@Kennon: I might be missing something, but don't you have to make the other person first when you win initiative with Retaliation!? Given you won the coinflip, how could you not have gone second in that instance?
Haha, yes, yes you do. This is probably a nice embarrassing example of another mental shortcut on my part. I do recall choosing him to go first, so I think it must have been different two claim plots, and I've just defaulted to Retaliation in my memory because it's the most awesome. :P
This is still not appearing in iTunes, what is the usual delay we should expect?
1:00:00 to 1:04:00 mark....stop thumping the table! :P
Re: Arys Oakhart discussion--ultimate bad economy: playing your own
Brown Ben Plumm (Core) just so you can trade up to Ser Jorah Mormont (WLL) because you haven't seen an enemy Ally/Merc for three turns....
In my Targ Army recursion deck, I actually used Jorah and discarded Long Lances (THoBaW) because I had a Recruitment (VD) in hand and plenty of standing Influence. Not always the best choice... but it was turn 4, I'd had Jorah in hand all game and not a single Ally or Merc forthcoming on my opponent's board.

Turns out it was the right play because they had intentionally created an Ally-free deck.
And, yes, not sure what you guys changed on the recording set up, but for two shows now, someone's (assuming Kennon's due to when it happened while he was speaking) table thumping is very evident.
It's due to recording over Skype, where I wind up having to sit at a table. Normally, we're on a couch, so I don't have a table to absent mindedly tap on.
