Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so we’re being completely original and diving into Fog of Love from Hush Hush Projects. Dave made us a beautiful Love Potion Martini for the occasion and we welcome our Executive Producer Sarah to the podcast again. We cap off with our 12 games that are good for couples (other than Fog of Love, of course).
This week we’ll talk about Ex Libris from Renegade Games. To make our recording experience even better, we drink Rhinegeist’s Knowledge Imperial IPA. We also take a quick look at Topiary from Renegade Games in our Backroom Quickie segment. We finish out the episode with a Barfight! We argue the following question: Should you play games to win or to have fun?
This week we’ll talk about Klondike Rush from Red Raven Games while we sip on some Barn Yeti from 450 North Brewing Company. We share some interesting facts about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., We’ve got another shout-at, and it’s a big one.
This week we announce our Platinum Pints Awards winners while drinking some Delirium Nocturnum from Brouwerij Huyghe. We also talk about some of our New Year’s resolutions for gaming in 2018. Here is the 52 Games Challenge that we mention if you want to check it out. Special thanks to Adam Stichter with Jack of Peace Games for making the Undead Honey Bees PnP based on our “spin the bottle” segment in Episode 02.
We’re a bi-weekly podcast, but this week we’re throwing in a special Holiday Episode! We are joined by our Executive Producer, Sarah Neiling, spend a little too much time talking about our new dog’s humping problem, and go over 10(ish) ways to play games with your family…and survive. We do all of this while we drink some Winter Wassail. We also throw in one last plug about the Platinum Pints Awards Voting that is live until December 29th.
This week we discuss Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle from USAopoly while drinking homemade Butterbeer (we used recipe #4). Since we’re talking about a Harry Potter-themed game, we decide to nerd out a bit and talk about our houses, wands, and patronuses as well as some fun HP themed segments. We also talk about the Platinum Pints Awards Voting that is live until December 29th.
This week we discuss Tyrants of the Underdark from Gale Force Nine with our first ever guest host Katie Aidley. We drink (too much) Dragon’s Milk from New Holland Brewing Company, talk a bit about wargames, and discuss mental health and inclusivity in the board game community. We also talk about the Platinum Pints Awards – our way to honor other Board Game Media Content Creators!
This week we discuss the game Summit from Conor McGoey and Inside Up Games while we drink Duet by Alpine Brewing Company. We also introduce our shotgun and spin the bottle segments, so let us know who you think the winner is for each by shooting us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or hitting us up on social media!
In our first episode, we discuss the game Skyward from Brendan Evans and Rule and Make while we sip on some Reboot White IPA by Boulevard Brewing Company. We also shout-at Terraforming Mars and chat with Lance Myxter from Tasty Minstrel Games about their latest Kickstarter, Downfall.
In our Preview Episode, we discuss who we are and what we’re doing with The Drinking Meeples. Meet our hosts, find out which color meeple they play with, and see what the podcast is all about!
