MeepleCon 2017 Recap

March 24, 2017

by Ambie Valdés
I went to MeepleCon in Las Vegas for the first time this year, and got to meet Cassadi and Crystal in person! This was the first time all three of us were even in the same state together, so it was a big deal for us. I had an awesome time playing games with Cassadi and Crystal and eating good food.

Since the MeepleCon library was only open from 10am to midnight each day, we took it easy and actualy slept a reasonable amount of time! I had 31 plays of 24 different games, 12 of which were new to me. We also played some craps at night, since we were in Vegas!

When we flew in Thursday night, Crystal and Cassadi were at the airport waiting for us! We got to visit Meepleville board game cafe to take a picture with the world's largest meeple. After giving away Blitzy the meepillow at Blitz Con, I had decided to make some more meepillows for the occassion.

How to Play: Dungeon Petz

July 19, 2016

Our How to Play videos are designed to be short (but still complete) instructional videos, mainly for people who want an overview before playing with someone who knows how to play (in place of that person teaching the rules). Setup and refresh is usually in a separate video, since only one person needs to know the details.


Episode 3 - All Things Unique

June 23, 2016

Ambie, Cassadi, and Crystal discuss some games they've played recently, including Keyflower, FUSE, Pixel Tactics, and City of Remnants. The "Accessory of the Week" segment is about 3D printers - not necessarily an accessory, but can be used for making accessories. We then discuss great games with a unique theme. In this week's "Board Game Etymology" segment, Crystal discusses the origins of the word "dice."
