Welcome to the Pub

We’re just a handful of dads that like to play games, design games, make games, play your games, sleep occasionally, then play some more games.

We also enjoy contributing to the hobby in as many ways as we can. Below you will find a tool to rank your games, our most popular resources, videos, podcast episodes and more.

Board Game Ranking Engine

Load a list of your games into our ranking engine and then compare them two at a time. May the best game win.

Episode 19 – Games that Deserve a Reprint

Welcome to Episode 19 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join us as we lament games that are are no longer in print – but should be! We hit on some older classics and some newer games that didn’t last long. Of course, Shuck has to close us out with one we weren’t expecting. Should these games be reprinted? Email us and tell us your thoughts.

After that we try out a new segment – unpopular opinions. In this segment we each state an unpopular opinion then sit back and let the others run with it.

Episode 18 – Get Off My (House) Rules

Welcome to Episode 18 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join us as we attempt to civilly discuss house rules. We start off by asking the question, “Do we like house rules?” but quickly find that this question is far too simple. We talk through games we have house ruled, games we would like to, and games we would never attempt to touch. Where we all finally land on house rules was up in the air all the way to the end.

After that we dive into another of Shuck’s Board Game Mechanics segments – this time all about Tile Laying games.
