My Top 100 Board Games – 50-41

My Top 100 Board Games – 50-41

We’ve made it to the half way point and things will be looking up from there. Now we get to the actually good games. See, that’s a call back to a joke I made previously. I’ll have my disclaimer soon, but let me just say…

Malts and Meeples -Kickstarted October 2019

Malts and Meeples -Kickstarted October 2019

Back with another Kickstarted, so many different projects that I talked about and a ton of cool ones out there. In fact, there were enough that it took me an hour and 20 minutes to get through it all. That was almost enough time to…

Malts and Meeples – Unboxing – Zombicide Green Horde

Malts and Meeples – Unboxing – Zombicide Green Horde

No game tonight, but I open up my copy of Zombicide Green Horde from CMON. I won the game from All Systems Go in Minneapolis, Minnesota with their 1 year anniversary sale. I plan on playing through the intro scenario in an upcoming stream.

Tonight’s beer is from Founders, their Dark, Rich, and Sexy Porter. It has a good robust taste to it and isn’t too sweet, which too many porters are. I don’t know that it’s one of my favorite dark beers, but I an many ways really look for those high ABV or barrel aged dark beers that help you feel warm in the winter.

Bottoms up!

Malts and Meeples – Aeon’s End War Eternal Unboxing

Trying my hand at this for the first time to see how it goes to unbox something. Also, this was supposed to have gone up on Twitch, but I had issues where it said it was streaming there and it didn’t. You can find me…

Back again last night, still on Youtube, but still planning to move over to Twitch soon here. I played two different roll and write games while drinking a beer from Dogfish Head brewery. The games were Welcome To… in which you are building up your…

Malts and Meeples – Pandemic Legacy Season 1 – Finale

Malts and Meeples – Pandemic Legacy Season 1 – Finale

After an exciting run of games, I am wrapping up Pandemic Legacy Season 1. See how it all ends and find out how well I did in the game.

Pandemic Legacy is a Cooperative board game that I’m playing as a solo game where you try and cure diseases that are ravaging the earth. But we play a team from the CDC who are trying to stop it. Was I able to stop it all in time or did the diseases get the better of me? You can find out more about Pandemic Legacy Season 1 on Board Game Geek HERE.

I, of course, also had a beer. This was Phosphorescent by Freethought brewing out of New York. I was not a huge fan of this beer. For a Pale Ale, the beer was quite sweet and didn’t have a hop profile to go up against it.

Join me next time as I take on a new game. I might do a few non-campaign games, Welcome To…, Criss Cross, and The Reckoners before I jump into a bigger game. I am also thinking about making the move to Twitch, but more on that when it comes up. The videos will still be uploaded to Youtube, just not streamed there.

Bottoms up.

Malts and Meeples – Pandemic Legacy Season 1 – Game 12

How did the latest game in Pandemic Legacy go? As we get closer to the end game, has anything new been revealed that will change the game going forward?

Pandemic Legacy Season 1 is a board game where you are trying to cure diseases. But as a legacy game the rules change and what you are trying to do in the game changes. You place stickers on the board, destroy cards, and unlock new rules, eventually you end up with a game that is unique from anyone else’s copy of the game. You can find more information on it over at Board Game Geek.

As for my my malt yesterday, I was drinking Fresh Haze from Deschutes Brewery. I really like most of Deschutes beers and their hoppy beers are some of my favorites. Fresh Haze is good, though I’m not always the biggest fan of hazy beers.

Bottoms up.
