In episode 21 of Meeple Overboard, we realize we hadn't recorded enough episodes to get us through the week that we'd be up at Salt Lake Gaming Con in Utah, so we recorded in the car drive with our friends Kyle and Whitney.  Big shout out to them for guest starring in our episode, and our apologies for all the background driving noises during the episode.  We hope you still enjoy, even though the audio quality is rather different than in our home studio!  It's some really fun discussion as we talk about our hopes going in, and what came out of the first day!

For episode 20, we're doing a top 5 list.  Wendy's Top 5, and Chris' Top 5 cooperative board games.  Celebrating 20 episodes with a little changein format, we'll each give our respective lists and discuss the games.  Do you like the top 5 list?  Did we do it well?  Let us know your thoughts, because we'd love the feedback.  If you like it, we'll keep making Top 5 lists!  We had a lot of fun with it, so we'll see if it becomes a regular segment.
