We’ve been playing Star Wars Destiny and It’s Great! Launch Event Sat 6:30

by: on November 17, 2016  |  

We finally got our copies of Star Wars Destiny, the new two player collectible card and dice game from Fantasy Flight Games.  I learned how to play it yesterday (it only took 15 minutes) and have been playing non-stop ever since!

This game has so much going for it!  First, it’s not expensive.  A starter set is $14.99 and includes all the cards you need to either play Rey or Kylo Ren, the dice, a short instruction sheet, all of the tokens you need and a nice sheet to track all of the cards in the set.

Second, it’s easy to learn. We were up and running in 15 minutes and other than a few references to the instruction sheet, I’ve been able to teach others to play in just a few minutes.

Check out the art and the dice!

Third, it’s easy to play while being in-depth enough to be interesting to an experienced gamer.  In this game, each player takes one action from a possible six actions and then it’s the other player’s turn.  There are no super complicated interactions between cards that make it overly complicated.  You roll a character’s dice, I play a card, you take the action on a card, I attack, etc.

Fourth, the dice are cool. The dice are large with full four color pictures on them.  And those pictures are not stickers, they are printed on the dice and then coated so there is no possibility that the picture will scratch or come off.  They have good heft and roll really nicely!

And finally, it’s STAR WARS! We’ve been waiting for a cool, fun, approachable Star Wars game and now we have it.  X-Wing is an amazing game, but it’s less than approachable for kids, families and casual players.  Destiny scratches that Star Wars itch and is fun and easy.

Come out on Saturday night 11/19 at 6:30 to get in on the action before the Star Wars Destiny officially releases.  Buy a starter set (limit one per player), play in a game and get cool promos and the option to pick up booster packs.

RPG Extravaganza Day coming up!

by: on September 7, 2016  |  

Meeples Games is hosting our first annual RPG Extravaganza Day this Saturday September 10!  With lots of content for new and experienced players, come learn something new while having a great time.  If you’ve never played, come try an RPG at one of our afternoon sessions.  If you are experienced, come share ideas at our evening work shop.   Let’s celebrate this golden age of RPGs together!

RPG Extravaganza Day Agenda:

1:30 – 4:30 PM  Learn to Play Dungeons and Dragons ($5).  This event is for new players to try the game and see what the buzz is about with 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.  You don’t need to bring anything.  Limited spots, sign up in advance on our Meetup site.

1:30 – 4:30 PM Learn to Play Star Wars RPG ($5).  Jump right into the action and see how the Star Wars RPG works.  Will you be Force sensitive, or are you on the run from the Hutts?  Are you part of the Rebellion, or just trying to stay on the down low and make some galactic cash?  So many possibilities!  Limited spots, sign up in advance on our Meetup site.

5:00 – 6:30 PM  Dungeons and Dragons Character Creation Workshop (free).  Need help creating a new character?  Too many choices, or confused by the process?  Let our experienced players guide you through the steps to creating the character perfect for your game objectives and play style!  Bring your Player’s Handbook if you have one.  Meeples Games will provide character sheets for your use.

7:00 – 9:00 PM Game Master / Dungeon Master Workshop (Learn to be a DM) (free).  The Game Master / Dungeon Master calls the shots.  They know what’s coming and can either help you out or set you up to fail.  They plan the adventure and guide the game.  Is there a trap door at the entrance to that tunnel?  Does the Ankeg get you in her jaws?  Do you find a Bag of Holding? The Game Master brings the story telling, the excitement, and sets the tone for awesome gaming sessions.  Whether you are new to the game or experienced, come share ideas, see how others lead their groups, and find out more about what it takes and how to get started being a Game Master (GM) / Dungeon Master (DM) at this fun workshop!
