Meeple Overboard Episodes
American Thanksgiving just happened, and we recorded on that day, so why not talk about some games we're thankful for. Not just games we like, but that somehow mean something kind of cooler to us. Check it!

Chris and Wendy review Sushi Go Party and all the other Phil Walker-Harding titles we've played. Why not talk about 10 games in a single episode! If you want to watch the aforementioned marathon of games we played in one night, go ahead and check out our YouTube channel!
We're discussing our Top 5 games that don't use victory points, particular a big tally of victory points at the end of the game, We're joined by two excellent guests, Amy and Maggie from ThinkerThemer, a great YouTube channel where they review board games from the perspective of a mechanisms perspective (Thinker) and the thematic and story-telling experience (Themer).

Happy Halloween! Chris and Wendy are posting early so you can enjoy this goodness before the actual holiday. We're reviewing Core Connection by Japanime Games and Sonora by Pandasaurus Games. Also, some candy talk, for the holiday. Enjoy.
Chris and Wendy steal an idea from Board Game Barrage. What would you repurchase if you only had $100 after losing your entire game collection? We take on the challenge. Then, we review Hoop Godz, currently on Kickstarter by Board Game Brothas. Live as of the posting of this episode, so go check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/omariakil/hoop-godz/?ref=kicktraq
Chris and Wendy hop into the Way Back Machine and travel to the distant land of October of 2018. We discuss movies and music of the time, and re-review the games we covered back then! How do Black Orchestra, Prowler's Passage, and SeaFall hold up today? Come find out!
Chris and Wendy go through two games with excellent themes, anime classics and theme parks. Both games were provided us by the publishers Japanime Games and Blue Orange games. Enjoy!
Here with our bonus monthly episode ....okay, so we haven't done a monthly ketchup since March. It's been 2020, you understand of course. So, we wanted to do a special Ketchup episode where we talk about our journey through the year. It's not an episode for a lot of people because we kind of talk about games very little. We talk about the stress of life, the burnout we had with games, the struggle of finding balance in a year of upheaval, but also the great times and memories that we've made. Whatever it is, hopefully it feels real.
Chris and Wendy review a set of worker placement games with some nice unique themes and pleasant execution. Demon Worker was a review copy provided us by Japanime Games. Pan Am is a Target Exclusive game by Prospero Hall and Funko Games.
