I wrote an app to replace the deck, and I'd like to add a short sound clip (2s) to play when the storm picks up or sun beats down. I have a sound in mind for the sun, but can't find anything close to what I want. What sound do you imagine when you get that card? If anyone could find something fitting, I'd appreciate that so much.

Shuffling the deck is always a task, especially when it interrupts the storm (when you've gone through the deck, but you still need to draw more), and the cards are bound to get damaged eventually.

It's basically done, just need sounds now.

I love this idea. How about a gong? That can be pretty menacing, which is the word that comes to mind of a hot sun in the desert. Here's a good one: https://youtu.be/oSqoyk9FenQ

Sizzling of food on a griddle. "It's so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk". Maybe throw in an eagle screech.

This is the first thing that came to mind, from Spaceballs. You can probably do without the dialogue but the music is very menacing.

Depends where you live, but when it gets blazing hot in the summer, the sounds of cicadas reminds me of that heat.

It wouldn't be appropriate for this, but the first thing I thought of was that song Cool Water - a lovely old standard about dying of thirst.

Sand being blown into/on dunes (around the 20 sec. mark in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXS3tHigNHQ?) And maybe sweat drops on hot sand (that probably sounds a lot like a match being extinguished in water?)Threads of a metal canteen screwing open (this at 4:40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPBYR1ITyy4) and the clanking of the cap against the empty canteen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGUmTfSiDss)? Try playing them all at the same time so the audio over-laps.

Great idea - good luck on the sounds!

my first thought was mentioned above; bacon frying

thought while typing this; dog panting

I'm loving all these great ideas! I'll definitely share the app when it's done, if anyone would be interested. I scanned the cards, but I still need to make them look more "digital", and less like scans.
Also, right now it doesn't have meteorologist options (since I remove that character when playing). I guess I should consider adding it if I want other people to use it, right?

there's a 60% chance I'd use the Meteorologist.

crackling/sparking embers sound? roaring furnace?

might not sound specific enough.
