How Social Distancing has Affected Tabletop Gaming

by: on April 1, 2020  |  

As we know, social distancing has put a strain on tabletop gaming. It’s hard to play games when there has to be 6 feet between you and another person. To see how social distancing has affected our community, we asked a few of our customers what they have been doing to continue playing without being with other people.

Friday Night Magic at Home

Wizards of the Coast recently launched FNM at Home via MTG Arena. This has been a great way for our Magic: the Gathering players to continue to play Magic. Last Friday (March 27th) we launched our first FNM at Home and it went very well. Arena is a great way to take Magic into the virtual world.

Dungeons & Dragons

Doug and Zoe Field have been coming to Meeples Games since we opened and participate in a group that meets weekly. They have taken their games online via a combination of Roll20 and Discord. When asked about their adjustment to online play they said there’s a learning curve but they are still having fun.

Similarly, Steve Tanzy, one of our weekly Warhammer players has also taken his D&D games online. Steve had the following to say “The game group I’m currently running for is adventuring through a 5th Edition conversion of the original ‘supermodule’, The Temple of Elemental Evil, and when social distancing became a real necessity, we quickly moved to an online format using Roll20.  Over the course of one session, everyone was pretty much getting it, and now I’m learning some of the more advanced parts of DMing through the application.  Once we got the ball rolling for that first session, it was nearly as good as playing in-person, and they made significant progress through the dungeon level they’re currently exploring”. As a pretty social person, Steve says he’s still having fun and in fact his group has gone from bi-weekly to weekly.

Other Tabletop Games

Many other people are taking to Tabletop Simulator (available via Steam) to play more casual games. Steve even said that if he were to take any of his miniature games online it would be through Tabletop Simulator (though there is a slight cost). Sarah Auerbach has also been playing an online version of Agricola with friends and has been thinking of taking other games virtual.

It’s great to see our community is still finding ways to connect when we can’t be together. Thank you to Tammy, Doug and Zoe Field, Steve Tanzy and Sarah Auerbach for answering our questions!

Stay safe and keep gaming! And, of course, be kind to each other during this stressful time.

SHEEPLE: The Best Game in the Ewe-niverse Demo Night!

by: on January 21, 2020  |  

Join Meeples Games on Thursday 1/23 at 6:00pm for an exciting ewe game demo!

In SHEEPLE: The Best Game in the Ewe-niverse, you start as a sheep. You’re trying to become a sheep-person.

How to Play:

  1. Pick a category
  2. Frantically Brainstorm – Each player has a minute to frantically scribble as many items that fit the category as they can think of.
  3. Compare Answers – Items only score points if other players also put them down.

So to win, you must THINK LIKE A SHEEP!

However, if answers are a little unique (only two players match), they score double points, so SHEEPLE encourages both inside-the-box and outside-the-box thinking.

Number of players: 4-10
Play time: 30 minutes
Ages: 8+

Pre-order your WarLock Tile Starter Sets Today!

by: on October 7, 2019  |  

Coming soon! The WarLock Dungeon Tile system solves many of the problems present with other tile systems. The WarLock clips allow players to construct rooms in advance and place them on the table as needed. 1” tall walls make it easier for players to move pieces around in the room as they play. Offset walls provide you with the ability to place figures in any square on the grid, without pesky corners eating into your play area. All tiles are reversible with wood design on one side and stone on the other for double the functionality!

The WarLock Tiles Starter Set is perfect for the beginning terrain enthusiast. It’s also a great fit for hobbyists with more expertise, but not a lot of time.

Also included in this set are sixteen adapter clips for each of the two most popular clip-based tile systems, DRAGONLOCK™ and OpenLOCK™, to help players integrate these tiles into their collection.

With enough pieces to set up the equivalent of “40 foot by 40 foot” in-game room with a multitude of interior options, this is the perfect starting point for your collection.  

This set includes (contents subject to change):*
16 – 2”×2” Dual-Sided Tiles
8 – 2” Straight Stone Walls
8 – 2” Straight Stone Interior Walls
4 – Corner Pillars
4 – Inside Corner Stone Walls
4 – Outside Corner Stone Walls
2 – 1” Exterior Wall Doors
16 – Stone Edge Caps
