Meeple Nation Board Game Podcast (general)

Is this game garbage? Tell us what you really think. Seriously. Drop the label and give us the why you didn't enjoy the game.

This week we discuss game audiences and game diversity, and set you free from believing you need to like all games.

Strap on your armor and get ready to make your way into the deeps beneath the castle. Rumors abound that a sleepy dragon is hoarding artifacts. Can you gain the best treasure and make it out of the dungeon before the dragon wipes you out? Be very quiet!

Party Games

This week we talk Party Games. First we speculate on what defines a party game. Honestly, who knows? Should it play more than 6? Should it involve teams? Should it be 'light'? Then we talk about our favorite party games, why they count, and why we find them outstanding. We talk Codenames, Spyfall, Times Up!, Ca$h 'n Guns, Wits & Wagers, Liar's Dice, Game of Things, and Two Rooms and a Boom!

In this episode we discuss Carolus Magnus designed by Leo Colovini and published by Venice Connection and Rio Grande Games.  This board game plays in less than an hour for 2-4 players.  Each player count plays differently but all are enjoyable.  This game is for more intense gamers.

We refer to the region tiles as city tiles, regions, and territories. These are all the same.
