MeepleCon 2018 Recap

March 19, 2018

by Ambie Valdés
Last weekend I went to my second MeepleCon, a board game convention in Las Vegas! The convention was three days, but we ended up getting a flight early Sunday morning to go home (other flights were a lot more expensive), so we were only there on Friday and Saturday. But we still had tons of fun playing games!

The Games
I played 22 plays of 15 different games at the convention (plus some Craps), 8 of which were new to me. The most played and my favorite new game was The Mind, a new cooperative card game where you have to play the cards in order without talking! Jess had a copy that she borrowed from Scott Alden and was bringing it around to everyone at the convention to try out. It was really hard and a lot of fun, and I really want to get it. Unfortunately, it's currently only available in Germany, but I heard that it will be coming over soon.

Episode 15 - Thanks for the Food!

November 24, 2016

Ambie, Cassadi, and Crystal discuss some games they've played recently, including Locomotive Werks, Concordia, and Cacao. Our Accessory of the Week is food you can have at board game night. We then talk about board games that have to do with food. In this week's "Board Game Etymology" segment, Crystal discusses the origins of the word "resource."
