Episode 15 - Tips for Teaching

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Hello, and welcome to the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join us as we provide some tips for teaching games. We cover how to prepare to teach, what to do when it is teaching time, and even some tips for during and after the game. Much of this is based on the Tips for Teaching article on the site.

Then stick around until the end of the episode to hear some of our stories of teaching failures and what we learned from them.

We are putting out the call for listener questions! If you have a question you’d like us to answer on the podcast please email it to pubmeeple@gmail.com.
