Meeple Overboard! is a podcast about board games, the gaming community, and our little slice of heaven that plays them. We're Chris and Wendy, and we love board games. Each Saturday, we'll bring you a half-hour episode featuring three segments:1. Shop Talk! We'll discuss a general board gaming topic, answer your questions, or discuss some news.2. Random Rally! We've got lots of interests, and eat lots of tasty things, and have a lot to share. Random Rally! is a few minutes of food for though ...
 
Four Corners of the Board is hosting by 4 friends who enjoy getting together and playing board games. We are all relatively new to the hobby (a few years) and all have very different preferences of board games which can lead into some lively discussions! Each podcast we take one board game and discuss it in depth. What we like and don't like about the game and maybe some ways we will play it differently in the future (variants).

Essen SPIEL is the latest of the conventions in 2020 to go digital, which is convenient for us, because we weren't about to fly to Germany any time soon. We perused the upcoming games that were showcased as part of the event, and picked our favourites to talk about. It's a top 5! Before we virtually convene, we talk about Babylonia, Veiled Fate, an…

Chris and Wendy steal an idea from Board Game Barrage. What would you repurchase if you only had $100 after losing your entire game collection? We take on the challenge. Then, we review Hoop Godz, currently on Kickstarter by Board Game Brothas. Live as of the posting of this episode, so go check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/omariaki…
 
We weren't going to let Kellen have the last word on what makes the perfect $100 collection, so the 139 squad is here to finish it out. Forgot the premise? You've lost all your board games, and only have $100 to rebuild it; what do you buy first? Before we make every penny count, we talk about Cosmic Encounter Duel, Hundreds of Horses, Billionaire …
 
It's an awful notion, but bare with me. What if you lost your entire board game collection, and had to rebuild it from scratch? Here's the catch, you only have one hundred dollars. We try to predict what the Red Tank would do, before he talks us through what makes the cut, and why. Before we rebuild, we talk about 5211, Marco Polo II: In the Servic…
 
Here with our bonus monthly episode ....okay, so we haven't done a monthly ketchup since March. It's been 2020, you understand of course. So, we wanted to do a special Ketchup episode where we talk about our journey through the year. It's not an episode for a lot of people because we kind of talk about games very little. We talk about the stress of…

Blessed are the forgetful, because they don't have to play memory games? After all, games with a strong memory component often get a bad rap in the hobby. We look at some of the reasons why very few games want to test your memory, and just to be otherwise, we discuss some of our favourite games that do. Before we walk our mind palaces, we talk abou…
 
Chris interview Tony Miller, designer of Weird Giraffe's Fire in the Library and the upcoming Kabuto Sumo being published by BoardGameTables.com. We discuss the incredible story of how this game came into existence and became an instant hit with everyone who saw it. We also discuss the upcoming New Mill Industries and The Science and Seance Society…
 
We often build up the idea of what a game will be before we play it, whether for bad or good, and the reality of the game itself might deliver something we weren't expecting. We take a look at what often leads to our expectations being shattered, and mention some of the games that most defied them. Before we expect the unexpected, we talk about SHŌ…
