Custom Meeples & Dungeon Crawls

Here are our two topics for Monday 26th June 2017.

Custom Meeples

The internet defines Meeple as "a small figure used as a playing piece in certain board games, having a stylized human form". It has over recent years however come to mean all sorts of shared bits of wood, from food and animals to ghosts and goblins. Is it o.k for games to come with basic pawns anymore? Lets discus.

Dungeon Crawl themed games 

Again, the narrow definition of dungeon crawl is "dungeon crawl is a type of scenario in fantasy role-playing games in which heroes navigate a labyrinthine environment (a "dungeon"), battling various monsters, and looting any treasure they may find." but I feel its become more than this now. Is this theme done? does it have more to offer? 

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

If you have a question you would like me to ask the board game community, drop me a tweet  @BoardGameHour before we start and I'll see if I can add it in :0)

Making it easier to take part in!

I generally used to use Nurph to host http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour (providing its working) but every now and then it goes down and causes problems.

If this happens, I recommend using http://twubs.com/boardgamehour or http://tweetchat.com/room/boardgamehour or Tweet Deck or Hootsuite to follow the hashtag chat. Of course you can just use twitter but sometimes the amount of #boardgamehour tweets can be challenging to keep up with.


Hope you can make it!
