As I open the page to finalize our Best of 2017 post, WordPress gave me a nice congrats to remind me it was our two year anniversary of starting the blog! Thank you to everyone who has been with us and we can’t wait to keep on writing!
With a New Year upon us, we can’t help but to feel a little nostalgic. About a year ago, we recapped our favorite games from 2016, so we decided to give that post another look. Things can change so much over a year, do these games fulfill the same need for us at the end of 2017? Let’s take a look and find out!
It’s that time of year where the weather is getting colder and we’re starting to spend more time inside. Ok, let’s face it, the Meeples aren’t really outside people anyway, so we cranked up the heat and busted out a few games. What have you been playing this week? We’d love to hear in the comments below! Otherwise, please enjoy this weeks boardgame musings!
You guys. It’s December. Which means it’s basically the first day of Christmas. If you’re not like us and cracking open the first day of your Advent Calendar, or aren’t the Christmasy type, you can accept the gift of our presence down below!
It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating Halloween and now Thanksgiving has come and gone! If you’re like me, you’re recuperating from your food hangover, but many Americans have been celebrating their capitalistic rights and have been shopping til they drop! If you’re one of the shopping kind, feel free to click on our Amazon Associate links below to help support us! Otherwise, please enjoy a more abbreviated version of our week in gaming!
After all of our excitement from GameHole Con last week, we had a bit of a quieter week in the gaming sphere as we settled back into normal life… or what passes for normal around here anyways. That said, we still did get a bit of gaming in, so read on to learn about our experiences for this week in games!
As you may have noticed from our “Meeples Weekly Recap” posts, we’ve been playing a lot of “Escape Room in a Box”-type games. In fact, I think we’ve played all of the major series in this genre: Exit, Unlock!, Escape Room: The Game, Escape the Room, Deckscape, and Escape Room in a Box. This post will compare and contrast these different games as well as give a brief review of what we felt about playing each of them. Please note that pictures and reviews many have spoilers, though we tried to minimize this as much as we could.
What a whirlwind of a week! After finishing up Gamehole Con we needed to take a bit of a breather to catch up on life, but not before creating this post to let you know how our week was! You’d miss us too much if we did that, we know.
With the weather getting colder and living in a place where the weather hurts my face, we’ve spending more time doing inside activities, which means MORE board games. I know, right? Who would have guessed?
