Dice Tower Network Podcast: Meeple Overboard
Meeple Overboard Episodes
Black Orchestra is a cooperative game about the attempts to assassinate Hitler. It's definitely a unique theme, so we review how it plays. We also discuss the movies we watched this summer, starting from Infinity War and going to Crazy Rich Asians. And we talk about how we keep our collection in just two cabinets.
Ahh, Mars, the Big Apple, as they call it. Can we turn it more into a mossy, moldy fruit ready for human life? This is going off the rails. Join us as we review Terraforming Mars, talk about different ways games can have variability in games, and talk about Gustav Holst's orchestral suite, the Planets!
Can you ruin a board game title by changing, adding, or removing one letter? Check out what people did to Wasteland Empress Delivery Service, or March of the Pants. Then we discuss what it means to be a Disney Princess, since our daughter is three years old and that's a part of life now. Lastly, we review Reef by Emerson Matsuuchi and Next Move Games, a subdivisoin of Plan B Games.
Join us around the table and learn a little about the history of how Meeples, Miniatures, and Dice are made! Also, we talk about veggie puns, inspired by our local grocery store stickers that our 3 year-old gets, and then we review Gizmos, by Phil Walker-Harding! Enjoy!

Ever wanted to know how board games are made? We'll tell you some of the interesting bits we learned. Also, why do Awful and Awesome mean polar opposites? Lastly, we review Istanbul the Dice Game by Rudiger Dorn and published by AEG.
If you know us, you know we love the simple and engaging designs of Phil Walker-Harding, a designer out of Australia. Well be prepared to inject your ear holes with the great sounds of him being interviewed by us. We discuss his upcoming game, Gizmos, talk about his design history, and learn a little about himself. Enjoy!
What games from one, two, or even ten years ago have you wanted to play but just haven't been able to yet? We revisit this topic from a year ago, originally recommended by Wayne Schliegel. Another listener mentioned we should come back to this topic every year or so, so here we are, a year later, following up on the original list, and adding a new 5 that we want to play. Off we go!
