Meeple Overboard Episodes
Time for another double-header review of two games we reeived review copie sof, Cloud City by Blue Orange Games and Pendulum by Stonemaier Games. These are two different games, though quite unique from other games on the market. Enjoy!
It's hindsight time! Time to look back on the games we reviewed two years ago and see how they hold up. This particular month, we feel strongly about. We love doing these hindsight episodes, and hopefully you find them instructive as well!
It's time to discuss the conclusion to the entire Star Wars saga! Until they release Season 2 of the Mandalorian, and everybody forgets what happened in this movie to make Baby Yoda chicken nugget memes. But until then, this is what we have to discuss, so let's do it. The final, epic, and long conclusion to our review of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. At least thankfully all our reviews of the three movies were shorter than The Rise of Skywalker.
Continuing in our unneccessary and long analysis of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, we discuss the most divisive film, The Last Jedi. Yes, there's plenty to make fun of, but there's also some fantastic insights about religion and legend we discuss. Hope you enjoy.
As a bonus episode we owe our listeners, we're following through with our promise to review the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Since it ended up being very long. Veeery long. So, we split it into three parts. A "trilogy" one might call it. There WILL be spoilers for each film, so listen at your own discretion. Hope you enjoy as we discuss the Force Awakens, the film that started off the new generation of Star Wars in 2015.
Chris and Wendy sit down to discuss an upcoming game called Studies in Sorcery, or Degrees in Darkness as it was titled when we did our interview, soon to be kickstarted by Weird Giraffe Games. Chris Glein, the designer and artist, gives us a pleasant interview and teaches us about the Winston Draft used in his game. Enjoy!
Chris and Wendy review two very different games, Tybor the Builder, which we forgot to say, is a drafting game that works perfectly well for two players. But what else do the we think of this amazing game? You'll have to find out why we think it's amazing! And we also review Star Wars Imperial Assault, as we finally got to try the game. We played it in the fully cooperative version using the Legends of the Alliance app which runs the Empire for you. It was played with our 5 year old daughter, so it is a pretty family friendly game.
Chris and Wendy give a shout out to Timm Metivier from Meepleville, Las Vegas' best board game cafe and talk about his goings on in the world of board game media now! And then we review Phil Walker-Harding and Matthew Dunstan's Adventure Games: The Dungeon.
Chris and Wendy review two VERY different games this episode. Shaky Manor, by Blue Orange Games, is an adorable little dexterity game about sliding different meeples around a little cardboard house. The other is Tapestry, a civilization themed game with a fantastic presentation by Stonemaier Games. How do these two fare? Come give a listen.
In this episode, which is apparently a "Double Hitter' according to Wendy, we are taking on a review of two games, Egizia Shifting Sands by Strongholds Games and the Kennerspiel winner The Crew by Kosmos. Hope you enjoy.
