If you pull out a monster, don’t be scared… You take charge, and the monsters will take off!

Being afraid of monsters is a normal part of growing up. Go Away Monster! encourages kids to conquer that fear by acting it out and taking control. It also lets them experience some of the apprehension and excitement in deciding what is real and what is imaginary.

Choose your recipes wisely to clear your workbench and stick others with too much raw material because the first player to overflow their nemesis’ cauldron with enough ingredients wins!

In Whirling Witchcraft, you start with a hand of four recipe cards, as well as a number of ingredients on your workbench; ingredients come in five types, and you have a limited number of spaces for each type on your workbench.

Introducing Keyforge – Pre-launch Event Nov 10!

by: on October 12, 2018  |  

Keyforge is a whole new type of card game from our friends at Fantasy Flight Games.  It’s a 2-player card game that is neither collectible nor living.  Each deck ($9.99 msrp) is unique using a combination of 3 of the 7 factions (Houses of the Crucible) and a selection of the many cards to create a one-of-a-kind deck.  Each deck has unique art generated just for it on the back of the cards!!

And, to top it all off, it’s designed by the legendary Richard Garfield (Magic: the Gathering, Android Netrunner, King of Tokyo to name only a few)!!  My head is exploding, Meeps!

Players become Archons who must collect Æmber to be the first to Forge three keys to win all while crushing their opponents. There are no costs to play cards, but only one fraction can be played per turn.

We’re pretty excited about the game!  We got our demo decks today so we can learn to play it and talk more fluently about it.  But, the idea is so cool that it has to be good!

Pre-launch Event 11/10

We’ll be running a pre-launch event here at Meeples Games on 11/10.  We’ll have a kit with swag.  More details to come!

KeyForge

“Don’t try to change the Crucible to fit your needs. Let it change you.”

Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! In the center of the universe hangs the Crucible, an artificial world built from the pieces of countless planets. Here, in the world’s first Unique Deck Game, created by legendary designer Richard Garfield, two players step into the roles of mighty Archons, racing to forge keys that unlock the Crucible’s hidden Vaults.

Leading their diverse teams, filled with followers from three of the Crucible’s great Houses, the Archons must gather Æmber, stave off their opponent’s progress, and ultimately be the first to open a Vault and gain its incredible knowledge. With a vast array of creatures, artifacts, and abilities and over 104 quadrillion possible decks, every deck is completely one-of-a-kind, and no two battles will ever be the same!

A World of Infinite Possibilities

In KeyForge, you become an Archon, one of the only native inhabitants of the Crucible. This world was built for your kind by the mischievous and enigmatic Architects, who cobbled together pieces of every planet in the galaxy, bringing with them an eclectic variety of creatures, vegetation, cultures, and technology from across the stars!

New Library Game – Flatline!

by: on July 24, 2017  |  

We love the game Fuse which is currently in our Game Library.  It’s fast, fun and cooperative.  Flatline is the next cooperative game from Renegade Game Studios.  In Flatline, you are futuristic emergency room docs with patients to treat.  The power is failing, you have a very short time to treat everyone before the power goes out!  No pressure!!

Flatline is new to our game library and has a whopping 7.7 rating on boardgamegeek.com

Check out this review from Geek & Sundry

Did I mention the cool dice?  Lots and lots of cool dice!
