Oh dear, what’s this then.

First off, I must warn you – this show is exceptionally NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Not in the slightest.

Some time ago, we asked for your gaming advice related questions with the promise that we might do something fun with them. Well, nearly a year later, that tree has finally borne fruit. And so, we unleash upon the board gaming world a project we have called “My Meeple and Me,” a loving homage to one of our favorite podcast media empires, the McElroy brothers’ juggernaut advice podcast “My Brother, My Brother & Me.” If you’ve enjoyed this, you will enjoy their shows much, much more. Check ‘em out!

Suggested talking points: Cargo shorts; archaeology; BASIC programming; dance moves; rules interruptions; getting the game group together.

My Meeple and Me has been a joint production of Aaron from Boards Alive, Jake from Draft Mechanic, and Alex from The Dukes of Dice.

Our theme song for this project is “One Hit Pitch Pipe” from Shapiro, friends of Jake’s from back in the college days who put together one banger of an album. You can go buy a copy of the album on their website, you should do that thing, it’s so good.

Thank you so much for listening to this oddity of a podcast, we hope you enjoyed it. Now, go listen to some McElroy goodness.
