Gaming Away vs A Gaming Stay

Gaming Away v Gaming Stay

Game Night. To each and every gaming circle this means something different. Be it a marathon of board and card games, late night delving into dangerous dungeons, or armies of miniatures clashing into each other on the fields of glory. Game night is a ritual, a meeting of friends, the sharing of the experience, and the retelling of adventures past. And it is typically a ritual that continues week-after-week without interruption; however, this is not always the case. Conflicts arise, work schedules change, and life gets in the way.

One of the things we like to do here at the Malted Meeple is give some extra attention to our favorite board game publishers and designers.

May Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

As we pass finish up April, we’re also winding down our month long Star Trek themed shake competition.  The Beam Me Up Scotchy, Trouble With Truffles and Live Long and Milkshake boldly went where no shakes had gone before. Although all performed well, the triple chocolate flavored Trouble With Truffles eventually emerged victorious. It shall now take its place as the May Milkshake of the Month, and join the other Milkshakes of the Month in the Meeple Madness Challenge! I’m sure it will come as no surprise to anyone that all of us here at the Meeple are eagerly awaiting the Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2 (opening in theaters May 5th!) It’s only natural that we should celebrate its arrival as only we can…
