Time to revisit our reviews from two years ago. Istanbul, Medieval Academy, Codenames, and A Feast For Odin were the games we looked at then. Have our opinions changed or grown? Do we still own those games? How do we feel about them today? All answered on today's episode of Meeple Overboard!

The Monthly Ketchup is a bonus episode we're doing each month where we are going over some highlights of the games we've played, recent news about us, and anything else we want to discuss for a bit. It's a more relaxed episode than our typical structure as a way of saying thanks for listening to our show.
Happy two year anniversary! We're reviewing Architects of the West Kingdom by Garphil Games, and coincidentally, we are giving away a copy of the game as well.
Joined by special guest, Matthew Jude, known from This Game is Broken and the Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast, we're talking cities. Not all games named after cities are created equal, and we're here to talk about the best of the lot. Also, we learn a little bit about Matthew's geography skills. Hope you enjoy!
This episode, we revisit some reviews we did two years ago! As they always say, hindsight is worth two in the bush before gift horses hatch. We want to start making this a recurring item, to revisit our review to games that we have previously done. How have our opinions changed in that time? Do we still own the game, or have we even played it since then?
Who doesn't love dinosaurs! Well, Dennis Nedry probably. But for those of us not eaten by dilophosaurs, welcome to Duelosaur Island, a 2-player dino-splicing, park-building game. Also, we discuss that phrase that's been going around for a while, "That's an activity, not a game." and we ask, does it really matter? Tell us what you think.
We bring you our first impression of another game we got to try on the Dice Tower Cruise, Smartphone Inc. This game by Cosmodrome Games has people buzzing, but should you be interested in it at all? Also, does placing fruit in a brown paper bag really help ripen it? And how about player scalability?
We're back on land! We're exhausted after a long flight, but we organized enough thoughts to make a coherent episode. Want to know about Wingspan? It's all the buzz, but what is it really?
Let's get this gingerbread! Want to learn about Phil Walker-Harding's new game about being witches trying to lure fairy tale creatures to your house? Of course you do! On the way, why don't we talk about the mechanism of trick-taking, and share some New Year's traditions from around the world. Can you fit 12 grapes in your mouth?
Teotihuacan is all the rage, and super hyped. But, is it all hot air, or is it really a good and beautiful game at a surprisingly affordable price? Well, that may be obvious now. Why is it good? What did we do over Christmas? And what makes an important game? Find out this week, on Meeple Overboard!
