Top 5 Video Games – 2019 Edition

Top 5 Video Games – 2019 Edition

For the past couple of years, I’ve gone through and talked about my top fives in a bunch of different categories at the end of the year. No different this year as I look back at what I’ve read/watched/played, and come up with my 2019…

Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Unboxing

Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Unboxing

New video up on the Malts and Meeples Youtube/Twitch channel. It is a bit shorter game than some, but it’s also not game play, it’s just an unboxing of Tainted Grail. Tainted Grail is a big story driven game from Awaken Realms who have done…

Malts and Meeples – Drinking in D&D

Malts and Meeples – Drinking in D&D

Last night I started in on some D&D Content on my Twitch Channel that is now up on Youtube as well. I meant for it to be a video about what D&D is, but I was a bit all over the place.

I think that when it comes down to it, the point that I hammer home about it being a fun collaborative storytelling game, that is at the heart of what good D&D, for me, can be. But that also doesn’t teach or explain some of the more mechanical aspects of Dungeons and Dragons. So that will be a future video that explains more of that.

My “malt” for the night was actually a hard cider from Sociable Cider Works out of Minneapolis, MN. It’s a solid cider with a rich flavor. However, I’m not a big fan of sweet ciders, and while Training Wheels is not the sweetest cider, it was a little bit sweet for my taste.

If you are enjoying the content that I’m putting out, please consider giving a subscribe to the Youtube Channel or a follow on Twitch. And a thumbs up on the videos would help as well. Thank you to the people who are checking out the videos and I hope that they are enjoyable.

Bottoms up!

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 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.
