Dice Tower Network Podcast: Meeple Overboard
Meeple Overboard Episodes
Come Pass Through Petra with us, as we review this new title from designer J. Alex Kevern and published by Renegade Game Studios. Also, ever wondered why we love games? We're going to talk about it, since we haven't as of yet. And then we'll talk about why the spelling and the pronunciation of February don't align.
Time to revisit our reviews from two years ago. Istanbul, Medieval Academy, Codenames, and A Feast For Odin were the games we looked at then. Have our opinions changed or grown? Do we still own those games? How do we feel about them today? All answered on today's episode of Meeple Overboard!
The Monthly Ketchup is a bonus episode we're doing each month where we are going over some highlights of the games we've played, recent news about us, and anything else we want to discuss for a bit. It's a more relaxed episode than our typical structure as a way of saying thanks for listening to our show. If you like this, please consider supporting us on Patreon at Patreon.com/meeple. Stay tuned for more info on how to win a copy of Architects of the West Kingdom!
Happy two year anniversary! We're reviewing Architects of the West Kingdom by Garphil Games, and coincidentally, we are giving away a copy of the game as well. Go check out Garphill Games to support them and say thanks for sponsoring this giveaway, and also learn more about our Patreon account at patreon.com/meeple. Also, what's the origin of the phrase "Wheelhouse", and what is your wheelhouse?
Joined by special guest, Matthew Jude, known from This Game is Broken and the Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast, we're talking cities. Not all games named after cities are created equal, and we're here to talk about the best of the lot. Also, we learn a little bit about Matthew's geography skills. Hope you enjoy!
This episode, we revisit some reviews we did two years ago! As they always say, hindsight is worth two in the bush before gift horses hatch. We want to start making this a recurring item, to revisit our review to games that we have previously done. How have our opinions changed in that time? Do we still own the game, or have we even played it since then? Also, we give some tips and pointers to newcomers to board game conventions, as we figured it could be useful. Enjoy!
Who doesn't love dinosaurs! Well, Dennis Nedry probably. But for those of us not eaten by dilophosaurs, welcome to Duelosaur Island, a 2-player dino-splicing, park-building game. Also, we discuss that phrase that's been going around for a while, "That's an activity, not a game." and we ask, does it really matter? Tell us what you think.
We bring you our first impression of another game we got to try on the Dice Tower Cruise, Smartphone Inc. This game by Cosmodrome Games has people buzzing, but should you be interested in it at all? Also, does placing fruit in a brown paper bag really help ripen it? And how about player scalability? What makes a game work well at different player counts? Come join us in Episode 102 to find out!
We're back on land! We're exhausted after a long flight, but we organized enough thoughts to make a coherent episode. Want to know about Wingspan? It's all the buzz, but what is it really?
We hit episode 100, so we're bringing to you a bizzare and fun Top 100 Games of All Time (as of 1/1/2019)! If you want us to explore our Top 100s even further in the future, keep up to date with our Patreon page as we update some goals here in the next month!
