Welcome to almost the end of the #NaPodPoMo month with episode 28! This time it’s Michael rolling solo one last time, with only 2 shows left to go before midnight! It’s a nail-biter of will they/won’t they?! He’s tasting Bell’s Black Hearted Ale, a darker than sin, IPA that in all honesty he didn’t think that he would enjoy, spoilers. He’s talking about the card game Brawl from 1999, a “A real-time card game of brawling martial artists.” where you’ve got everything from goth-waitresses, to catgirl fighters all going at it in a free for all fight to win three bases! It doesn’t sound too crazy, but considering that every game lasts roughly 30 seconds, it gets nuts pretty fast!
It’s episode 27 of Meeples & Wine and Michael is still recording on his own, she’s coming back I SWEAR! But this episode he samples a glass of Chanmé MéchantPinot Noir 2020, a nice dry wine that is just begging to be paired with fettuccini and cream sauce or a nice thick stew. He also opines about mobile gaming and how that’s changed for him since his first Palm Pilot and the homebrew games that used Final Fantasy sprites and old text based adventures like Zork!
He goes on to tell of playing Doom RPG on his Sony Ericsson W600i (I LOVED THAT PHONE). Finally he gives his current top three mobile games, which are listed below!
Hello and welcome to Meeples & Wine number 26! Only four left for #napodpomo, which would be awesome if we actually had 4 days left! This show we have Daughter “first out of the gates” Katie, who’s joining Michael in talking about her favorite games for playing with the family. (This is also her first podcast hosting experience!) We’re tasting Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer, it’s a NA drink that has nothing to do with any Wizarding World out there. The game of the day is Anomia, a fast moving card game where things that you could have totally recalled a moment ago leave your brain completely!
This episode, Michael is still drinking 3 Floyds craft cocktails and has moved on to the Negroni, while not loved all that much by Suzy, it’s still a solid drink! (If this is too ginny for you try an Americano!) We discuss who you’d like to have when facing off against terrorists, demons or aliens, Jack Burton, MacReady, or John McClane?
Welcome to Meeples & Wine! The show that delves into the games that won’t throw your marriage into a therapy session! Today (22 of 30 shows for #NaPodPoMo!) we’re talking about our earliest memories of going to the movies and movies based on board games! Yes, we know we’re supposed to be giving game reviews, but with the month almost over, we’re running out of ideas! (BTW, if you have any ideas, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Welcome to episode 21! Tonight on the closing of Thanksgiving, we’re resting in our turkey comas have put away all the leftovers and are enjoying a nice hot mug of cider. What’s in that cider, you may ask? Well we’ve got Plantation Original Dark Rum and Old Granddad’s Bonded Bourbon, both worthy additions to a apple-y nightcap!
The question of the day is “What are the best party games for the holidays?” What’s going to keep everyone engaged and having fun? Is it an old school classic game like Pictionary or Cranium, or something new like The Chameleon? Could it be something hectic and crazy like Spaceteam or a lower key (and lower volume) game like Whoonu?
Tonight we discuss tabletop games that have a theme of food! Thanksgiving is just a couple days away and we’ve gotten our baking needs bought, well, except for heavy cream. I don’t care if it’s grass fed, organic, only got sun from the west, the name of the cow was “Loretta”, I’m not paying $6.50 for a pint of cream. – Michael. We’re sipping Chaucer’s Mead (with the spice bag) hot tonight, so we’ll see where that takes us, it’s from Bargetto Winery by the way. But on to the games! Food themes is where we’re at, and we’ve already talked about Sushi GO!, so that’s off the table. Point Salad isn’t though, and toss that in with some others like Turkey Day!
