Malts and Meeples – Aeon’s End: War Eternal Playthrough

Malts and Meeples – Aeon’s End: War Eternal Playthrough

I was back against last night with some Malts and Meeples, this time I was actually get to a playthrough of Aeon’s End: War Eternal from Indie Boards & Cards and Action Phase.

Aeon’s End: War Eternal is a deck building game where you are protecting your city of Gravehold from whatever Nemesis is attacking it. The first time you play it, they recommend that you play against the Umbra Titan, the easiest nemesis. So I took it on in a two player battle to see if I was able to out last it before it would destroy the foundation of our town.

As for my brew, I had Horizon Red IPA from Summit Brewery. It had been sitting in my fridge for a while, so I feel from what I remember of the beer it wasn’t as bitter as it could have been, but it was still enjoyable to drink.

If you are enjoying the videos, please consider giving a thumbs up and subscribing to the channel. The more people who interact with the channel, the more people who are going to be able to find the content.

Bottoms up!

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 14

I’m back again with game 14 of Pandemic Legacy Season 1. If you know how Pandemic Legacy works, you know that I’ve had at least a couple of losses in there. But join me to see how the game has been going overall.

Pandemic Legacy is a cooperative game that I’m playing solo where you are trying to cure various diseases that are popping up all over the board. However, in the legacy version of the game, you have rules that change, and the board changes as time goes on. So are you able to save the world? More information can be found on Board Game Geek.

My malt was Splendid Moose from Insight Brewing. Insight is local to Minneapolis, and one of my favorite breweries for their branding, their tap room, and their beer. Splendid Moose is a hazy IPA with really nice citrus flavors. You can find more about their beers on their website, linked here.
