Dice Tower Network Podcast: Meeple Overboard
Meeple Overboard Episodes
Chris and Wendy look at the reviews they did two years ago, and the ones they even did four years ago! We did a Top 5 list with Danny Quatch from Danny Plays Gamez. It was a fun time those many years ago, so let's relive them!
Chris and Wendy talk about the good part of taking a small break for a little bit, explain what Soap Dispenser Moments are, and then review Long Shot The Dice Game, a roll and write version of the original game that is quicker and smaller.
Rococo Deluxe by Eagle Gryphon Games is the huge box fancified new version of a classic, beloved game. How is it with the updated treatment? Well, still the same game as before, so let's talk about it. We also discuss recent news with Board Game Arena and talk about not punishing the behavior you want to see from people.
Wendy and Chris look back two years to the reviews we did in February of 2019, which includes our hindsight reviews of the games we covered in February fo 2017! We forgot that we've been doing hindsight episodes for so long that we're now hindsight-ing our hindsights. If HIndsight is 20/20, then this is 20/20/20/20? Anyway, we talk about a bunch of games AND we discuss the current Kickstarter game of CoraQuest that you can still back in mid-February. It's a heart-warming story, and we're happy for its success!
Don't call it a comeback. Or do. We're not the boss of you. But whatever you call it, Meeple Overboard is back on the air. We return to talk about the personal chaos of the last month and Chris beginning working full-time for the Dice Tower, and also we review Tapestry Plots and Ploys expansion by Stonemaier Games. Enjoy!
Welcome to the episode 200 spectacular of Meeple Overboard! Two! Hundred! Episodes! To celebrate, we're joined by special guest Jordan Hopper of the No Cube Zone for what the Brother's Murph have coined as the "One In a Hundred" list. We went through the Board Game Geek dot com rankings and chose our favorite game out of each page of 100 games. Therefore, out of the top 1,000 games, we were FORCED to chose 10 games spread fairly evenly throughout. It's great because it means we talk about games that seldom otherwise get mentioned. Enjoy!
Wendy and Chris answer YOUR question today. For the 4th year in a row, we've continued the cherished traition of doing a Q&A episode. It's easy plannning on our part. Some heavy news to start with, but it is a fun, light-hearted episode with a lot of fun discussion that has been a nice break for us from the real world right now. Hope you enjoy!
It's the end of 2020, which means that it's time to assess the best games of the year! But not this year. We haven't played enough of them. How about the best games of 2019! Let's look back to the year when we were so wonderfully innocent and doe-eyed and playing "old" games.
Join Chris and Wendy as we re-review the games and the Top 5 lists we covered two years ago on the podcast during the month of December. Top 5 Games We Wish Existed with Billy "LBO" Dunmire, and Top 5 Puzzly Games with the Board Boys.
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!
