The Mega Meeple Podcast – Episode 032 – Looking Forward to 2018

Happy New Year! In this episode, Thomas and Al gaze into their crystal ball to talk about what games they are salivating for in 2018. Albeit this is only taking into consideration what has actually been announced for a 2018 release, so your mileage may vary. You can probably consider this a Pre GenCon List. Once the games are announced for the later half of the year for next holiday season, you can expect a Part 2 or Post Gen Con List of Most Anticipated Games from us then.

Thom also takes some time to reflect on the past year – or more specifically the past 8 months – of the podcast and where it has come and where I hope it can go in 2018. Not so much a New Years Resolution thing but rather a verbal contract to our listeners of what the road map looks like right now. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please reach out to us via any of our social media pages (links at the website).

Thank you all for a great 2017 and all your help and support. I’m glad that there is an audience out there for my particular style of infotainment. Kudos to all of you for walking on this adventure with me. As I said on the “pre-episode”, it will improve and evolve with time.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What are you looking forward to playing in 2018?

The Mega Meeple Podcast – Episode 028 – Solo Games (Guest: Jamey Stegmaier)

In this episode, Thomas and Al are back in the studio to discuss solo gaming, why there’s a market for it as well as dispelling the tired old myth that claims that solo gamers don’t have any friends.

Our guest this episode is another first. Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games was our very first guest interview here and he is now our first returning guest. This time Jamey talks about the expansions to Scythe including The Legendary Box and even explains errata for Scythe regarding a certain faction board combo. He also talks about Charterstone this is being released next week.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What games do you like to play solo?
