MN 0194 The Twelve Days of Gaming

This holiday seasons people make lists and people play games. Some even make lists of games they would play. Do you prefer Nathan’s Twelve (mostly short games) that he wants to play 1-12 times in the next few weeks? What do you think about Brent’s list of games that have the number of the day in them? Even better, Ryan has ideas for mini goals to do while playing games.

Whatever you celebrate this month, we hope you are surrounded by friends and family and board games.

MN 0192 Extra Life 2017 Recap

In November, Meeple Nation helped put on a 24 hour board game event, which collected donations for Extra Life and the Children’s Miracle Network. We review and recap the event, which turned out great. Some of the awesome games that we got to the table were Infected, The Quest for El Dorado, Terraforming Mars, Iron Dragon, Crossfire, and Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies. We’d like to thank Tab Bank for hosting, and Tasty Minstrel Games, Mayday Games, Tim Fowers Games, and Red Raven Games for sponsoring.

MN 0188 Are You a Board Game Collector

After a few weeks of discussion we sit down and record this episode on Board Game collections. Brent asserts that a person is a collector if, 1. They identify themselves as a collector and have at least two games, and/or 2. They have more games than they could reasonably play.

Ryan uses a sports analogy to explain how he would select games to buy if Nathan, Brent and his other friends didn’t keep him supplied in games, and Nathan waffles on whether he is A True Collector.

This episode is filled with quotations from our tribe. Join us on Facebook at Meeple Nation Off Air or on our BGG guild, 1943.

MN 0187 Cornucopia of Games

Join us this week while we discuss three games we have recently played. Ryan explains Pirate 21, a quick game from Indie Boards and Cards. Nathan follows with his explanation of Delve from the same company, and finally, Brent leads off discussion about Codenames Duet, a cooperative version of Codenames.
