The Mega Meeple Podcast – Episode 023 – Pizza and Ice Cream!

In this episode, Thomas and Al discuss the pros and cons of Kickstarter. How does it affect or influence the gaming community? Is there room for the “little guy” with a single dream? Does it feed the appetite of the one with the most toys? We also extend an invitation to those in the local area that are planning to attend ExtraLife on the weekend of Nov 4-5 at Carolina Tabletop Games in Pineville NC.

Our special guest this episode is Andrew Haigh that has a game on Kickstarter now called Pizza World. Andrew talks about this easy to play family oriented game that has numerous modes of gameplay and mechanisms.

The Mega Meeple Podcast – Episode 022 – Tom Vassel Thinks

In this episode, Thomas and Al are face to face in the studio to discuss Tom Vassel’s comments about FLGS on The Dice Tower’s Board Game Breakfast “Tom Thinks” segment. We also lament the loss of our sanity trying to play First Martians. Al’s wife Patrice makes a cameo as we talk about Extra Life, a gaming marathon event to raise money for local children hospital charities. Check the link below to see if and when YOUR local gaming store is hosting the event.

We apologize for the audio. This episode was recorded on a digital recorder but we will have dedicated microphones and headsets on the next episode to get rid of all the ambient noises bleeding thru. We appreciate your support and patience as we continue to evolve and improve as a podcast.

The Mega Meeple Podcast has it’s first co-host!

A while back I had put out a request for anyone available and willing to be a co-host on the podcast. Someone that had more knowledge and experience with RPGs and boardgames than me that can bring another perspective and approach to the gaming hobby. As well as someone that I can bounce topics off and banter with so you don’t have to listen to my voice drone on and on about stuff only I know about. Luckily someone has stepped up to bat and you’ll be hearing him on episode 21 of The Mega Meeple Podcast.

More info about him upcoming. Stay tuned!
