Meeple Overboard Episodes

In our Hindsight episodes, we look to the past. Hopefully by re-reviewing the games we reviewed two years ago, some of you will get a better idea of how games hold up. Hope you enjoy a little journey to the past, like Anastasia...Get it? Because of the song, Journey to the Past?  Get it?

I don't mean to be crude, but we're gonna get dirty and talk about the oil industry!  Get it?  Crude?  Dirty?  Oil?  Eh?  Well anyway, we're talking about theme, how much it means to us, and why it's sometimes an overblown topic. And we also review a very hot new game from Capstone Games, Pipeline.

Episode 123, easy as ABC. We're talking about Asymmetry in games both major and minor. Then we talk about a real life quack, but not from Quedlinburg. And lastly, we review the campaign game Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth by Fantasy Flight Games. It's a pretty packed episode, so enjoy!

Roll for the Galaxy, the dicey version of the cardsy version of a euro game classic. Somehow we hadn't reviewed it until now, and Rio Grande Games had sent us a review copy of the Rivalry expansion. We break down the game and the expansion in detail, so come check out our thoughts on it. Just like Saturn, we liked it, so we put a ring on it.

On today's episode, we interview Marc from The Thoughtful Gamer. We discuss several aspects of economics that are represented in board games, and even some of the limitations of trying to do so.

Hindisght to June of 2017!  This month in history, Wonder Woman outperforms Transformers: Last Knight at the box office.  And good thing too! Eesh!  But also, we reviewed a few games back then that we're going to look at with 2 more years of experience.  Most of these particular games aren't still in our collection anymore. Do you have any thoughts on our reasoning? Want to hear from you if you still love these games.

It's time to ketchup with your pals Wendy and Chris. Get it?  Ketchup?  Catch up?  That's been the joke this whole time. We talk about Dominion Rennaissance, Aloe Vera, Vinhos, Escape Plan, and more!  Come catch up with another good month of ours.
