Level 99 Games Logo

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 shine our Publisher’s Spotlight on our friends from Level 99 Games!

October Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

Competition raged throughout the Milkshake Frontier, but the intergalactic populace has spoken and has chosen a winner. Shake Space Nine and The Next Shakination fought hard, but it was Shake it So that emerged as the greatest milkshake warrior and claimed the spot as the October Milkshake of the Month. October is spooky scary month, filled with frightful costumes and delightful desserts. We jump into that wonderful time of year with a few Fall favorites. Our competing shakes for October are: The Great Pumpkin (Pumpkin Roll), Nutferatu (Butter Pecan Pie), and Frankenshake (Peanut Butter Caramel Cookie). Will the Great Pumpkin visit us and reign supreme? Will Nutferatu haunt our taste buds? Or will the Frankenshake rise as the greatest creation? Don’t forget to vote for…
