April Publisher’s Spotlight – Space Cowboys

Space Cowboys

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. In our monthly Publisher’s Spotlight we provide a bit of background on the publisher, discuss a few of their games, and may even announce a visit to The Meeple by some of the publisher’s representatives! This month, we are proud to shine the light of our Publisher’s Spotlight on a prestigious member of the Asmodee Family, Space Cowboys! Based in France, Space Cowboys was founded in 2013 by founders and key players from within Asmodee Games including: Marc Nunes, Phillippe Mouret, and Croc. As the name Space Cowboys suggests, while the company is new, the players are not strangers…

TableTop Day Logo

Join us Saturday April 29th, 2017 for International TableTop Day! In what is becoming a Meeple tradition, we will once again be joined by a special guest, Maureen McCardel from Rather Dashing Games! If you are not familiar with International TableTop Day, it is an annual gaming celebration created by Geek & Sundry, the folks behind the popular YouTube series TableTop, which features actor Wil Wheaton and celebrity guests playing hobby board games. Each episode of TableTop focuses on a particular board game, and teaches the audience – and sometimes the players – how to play. Given how fond we are of teaching people hobby board games, we’re big fans of the show. With International TableTop Day, Geek & Sundry takes TableTop on the road. More to the…

Picture this: it’s the last few minutes of everyone’s favorite sci-fi TV show. Except everything seems to be going horribly wrong! Shields are down, the Jump Core is offline, multiple systems are failing, hostile aliens are attacking, and worst of all, no one knows what to do because The Captain Is Dead!

April Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

As we pass the last few days of March, we’re wrapping up our month long milkshake competition between the heroes of the X-Men. Storm’s Lightning Berry, Professor Xavier’s Telepathy Toffee and Wolverine’s Banana ‘bub all performed heroically, but it doesn’t take a psychic to see that Professor Xavier’s Telepathy Toffee is emerging the victor. It shall now take its rightful place as April’s Milkshake of the Month. In April we boldly go where no shake has gone before, and explore strange new Star Trek shakes! April’s Milkshake Madness features the Beam Me Up Scotchy, Trouble With Truffles and Live Long and Milkshake. We briefly considered entering our specialty Red Shirt shake in the competition, but come on, we all know how that would end…. So…

Launching Soon – Werewolf the Wild West

Werewolf Wild West

The Malted Meeple fan-favorite Werewolf is back! But this time the lycanthropes are headed back in time and down under! Werewolf: The Wild West is a campaign that mirrors the late 1800s in Sydney, Australia. In this World of Darkness setting, many supernatural creatures exist but remain hidden from the human population. According to legend, the first werewolves were created to try and protect the natural world (Gaia) from the forces of corruption (The Wyrm). Players take on the roles of these defenders of nature and together they will face off against vampires, mages, corruption, and the encroachment of civilization. The campaign will begin as a spiritual rite of passage as the players are forced to survive in the wild. Along the way they will need…
