Game Spotlight – Warsaw: City of Ruins

Warsaw Game of the Month

September’s Game Spotlight shines on Warsaw: City of Ruins, an economic strategy game of city building through drafting and tile placement. Well received at summer gaming conventions such as Origins and Gen Con, Warsaw: City of Ruins is a great new addition to our extensive game library here at The Malted Meeple. It was originally published in Europe by Grana under the title Capital, and was brought to the U.S. market by our good friends at North Star Games. In Warsaw, players jointly build the city of Warsaw by building their own districts of the city over six eras, or rounds, earning income and victory points after each era is complete. Each era is divided into two phases: Construction and Income. In the Construction Phase…

One of our favorite breweries is back in our spotlight – Rogue Ales out of Newport, Oregon.

Brewery Spotlight – Anderson Valley

Anderson Valley Spotlight

We’re heading out west for this month’s Brewery Spotlight, to Anderson Valley Brewing from Boonville, CA in the lower seat of Mendocino County.
