Meeples & Wine 28 – Blackheart & Brawl

28 Feature

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!

Meeples & Wine 27 – Pino & Mobile

27 Feature

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 Méchant Pinot 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!

Meeples & Wine 21 – Hot Cider & Party Games

21 Feature

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!

We’ve also got some Twitter chatter with Dave Z ✶✶✶✶ Beer In Front Podcast (@BeerInFront) and F**k My Work Life (@fmwlpod) on making beer, Malort or White Claw gummies!

    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?

    Meeples & Wine 19 – Food Games & More Mead!

    19 Featured

    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!

    CREAMED ONIONS…yeah
