Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Playthrough Part 2

Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Playthrough Part 2

I was back last night with a live stream of Tainted Grail on Twitch. And now the video is also up on the Youtube channel. Thank you to those who checked out the stream. I don’t tend to announce too far ahead, but my plan…

Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Set-up and Chapter 1 Part 1

Malts and Meeples – Tainted Grail Set-up and Chapter 1 Part 1

It was a long holiday break, mainly because it’s also generally a Kickstarter deadtime so I didn’t do a Kickstarter show, but I’m back to streaming a game. This time it’s Tainted Grail by Awaken Realms. This is a massive and immersive story set in…

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 games like Nemesis and Lords of Hellas. In Tainted Grail, you play as not that heroic characters who are pulled into adventuring as the Menhir (statues that drive back the wyrdness) are starting to go out. Can you keep them lit in order to complete the quests? It’s a story game, but also a survival game as you are dealing with diplomatic and combat encounters. I don’t spoil any cards in the video, don’t worry, or the adventure journal which really drives the game.

The beer last night was from O’Dell Brewing Co. A big barrel aged beer, I really enjoyed Barreled Treasure Imperial Stout. It’s barrel aged as I said with cold brew coffee as well. I think it’s a beer that is better a bit warmer because you get more of the flavors. It’s also sitting at 11%, so a good beer for a cold winter night.

Malts and Meeples – Drinking in D&D Character Creation Rush

Malts and Meeples – Drinking in D&D Character Creation Rush

Almost forgot to share this, it was a rush, but I go through nine different level 1 characters for Dungeons and Dragons. I was hoping that I could knock them out fast, but it took a little bit, but I got them done. And I…

Malts And Meeples: Drinking in D&D – Character Sheet

Malts And Meeples: Drinking in D&D – Character Sheet

I’m back with some more Drinking in D&D. Tonight I brought up two Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, but I only drank one of them. It’s one of my favorite beers, a good IPA. The topic for Drinking in D&D was looking at the Character Sheet…

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!
