Happy October, my friends! All month I will be talking about games, toys, decorations, snacks, etc. related to holiday Halloween. To kick off this spooky exciting month, I bring to you a review of the tabletop card game Trick or Treat by Leder Games.
Happy Thursday, y’all! Today’s post is going to be light as I get geared up for October and all of the exciting Halloween themed board games I have to share with you all. Since I wanted to a light post, I chose a light game to review, the new game out by Asmadi Games, Meow.
In this edition of Meeple Speak, designer Helaina Cappel talks a little bit about board games in the classroom.
Matcha (fine powdered green tea in Japanese) is an asian-themed matching game I picked up the other day. It’s a two-player game that lasts about 20 minutes. The goal of the game is to be the first player to have created the best tea, either by getting one of each of the items you need, or four of one item you need.
In this edition of Meeple Speak, we welcome guest writer Keith Matejka designer of Bullfrogs, where he reflects back on the project and shares with us the lessons he learned from Bullfrogs.
In this (our first) edition of Meeple Speak, designer Michael Eskue writes about why he is not quitting his day job anytime soon.
In keeping with my recent love of card games, last week I picked up today’s review Red7, a game designed by Carl Chudyk and Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games. Red7 is a 2-4 player card game that I would say is a little like a mash up of Fluxx and Uno. Everyone starts with a set number of cards in their hand, and they are trying to be the last one standing at the end of the round. The way you knock out other players is by playing cards from your hand that either satisfies the current rule AND makes you be winning the game, or you change the rule to make it so you are winning the game.
