    Ok, First i want to say I’m a huge (if new) fan. After listening to all of crit-hit, from start to present in 8 hour daily marathons, I jumped into Munchkin Land just to keep the fun going and haven’t been disappointed. Until this episode.

    This episode really pissed me off, and I HATE that it’s the first one that I’ve felt a desperate enough need to respond to that I was actually motivated to do so. It’s OK with me that the episode files got borked. I work in film, as I know Rodrigo does. I know stuff happens and control is loose at best. I’m fine knowing that I missed out on the actual gameplay. But this episode feels mean spirited. I know it wasn’t meant this way, but the episode essentially felt like “dude, guys, we totally had an awesome game and it was SO COOL, but we’re not gonna tell you because reasons.”

    Again, I know it wasn’t meant that way, but maybe in the future consider that the fans might read this as taunting? Maybe just apologize and be done with it? Maybe actually explain the cards you used instead of talking around it? Seeing Rob get screwed in novel ways is a lot of the fun of this cast and missing out on it but being told how epic it was sucks. I’d have even settled for him ranting for 15 minutes about what happened and why it wasn’t fair. Knowing him he’s got a whole blackboard of diagrams drawn up in his apartment trying to figure out how he missed seeing “it” coming and could recount the episode 9 moves before he made whatever mistake it was he apparently did. But to hear that this epic thing happened without knowing what specifically happened… GHAAAAAA! So frustrating.

    I really hate that the first time I’m taking the time to write you guys is so negative, because you are all far more awesome and deserve the praise more than the criticism. I never thought I’d enjoy just listening to a bunch of guys play D&D as much as I do, but then I stumbled on crit hit and was sold the moment Torq managed to jump out of two windows and get lit on fire almost immediately, and has kept the tradition up until his (hopefully temporary) departure after the Feywild.

    Keep up the good work, all of you.

    A huge, if angry fan.

      Sorry this episode gave you such a negative reaction. Imagine how I feel knowing that this episode was lost. Have a good day!
