August Publisher’s Spotlight – Gamelyn Games

Gamelyn Games

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, as summer comes to a close and kids go back to school, we shine our Publisher’s Spotlight on our friends from Gamelyn Games! Based out of sunny Queen Creek, Arizona Gamelyn Games was founded by Michael and Brittany Coe in 2012.

August Game of the Month – Hotshots

Hotshots Game of the Month

August Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

A new victorious milkshake has emerged from the webs! Spiderman and Green Goblin battled it out throughout the month of July but it was the Sandman that rose to victory. The delicious Lemon Cookie milkshake was so great that even the friendly neighborhood webslinger himself couldn’t beat the Sandman’s delight. The Sandman will go on to take his place as August’s Milkshake of the Month. August’s Milkshake Madness competition is all about turtle power! We are really embracing our ninja time this month, and adding an extra flavor to the competition. After all, we couldn’t leave out one of the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now, could we? Throughout August you can try the Donatello (grape), Leonardo (blue lemonade), Michelangelo (peach) or Raphael (raspberry). Which…

Perspective of a Female Gamer

Chrissy DM

Here at the Malted Meeple, one of the key things we provide our guests is a friendly and open environment. This can be challenging when a game like Dungeons & Dragons has a mythos behind it of the group of nerdy guys sitting around a table with their pocket protectors and Doritos.

For myself I can say that during college I had tried to delve a little deeper into this mysterious world of tabletop RPGs. I found it mostly confusing, and found that my boyfriend’s players tolerated my presence at the table at best. It took my now husband quite a long time before he…
