Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 52

Download Episode 52

Can you believe the summer is almost at an end? Everyone is planning for ‘going back to school’, England are preparing to finally lose the Ashes series – and I finally get to go away on holiday!

However, as a parting summer gift, I’ve uploaded Episode 52 of the Meeples & Miniatures podcast. This is a look back at what I’ve been doing over the summer – the UK Games Expo and Manorcon mainly – but with a bit of extra chat about my favourite Gen Con highlights (I almost felt like I was there) and even some chat about a computer game that would make a great miniatures game.

I hope you enjoy the show, and look out for lots of new content coming in September.

  1. Hi, – Have listened to most of your podcasts – good stuff. You are not a D6 but thats what makes you good – keep going with your own style.

    Went to the Steam web site as it sounded fairly intertesting. And for the fun of it ordered the xcom games – no problems; and I am not that computer literate.
    The Xcoms are certainly o-l-d but failry easy to play, if the dam UFOs will let the Inceptors catch them.
    I googled a manual for Xcom UFO Defence and have worked through most of the 134 pages! (it was bit like the old style Avalon Hill rules where a D6 is not a dice but a cubed random number generator from 1 to 6 inlcusive)
    But am working through the game slowly. Though, even on easy the countries currently funding me are not too happy with me. A little more practice. A bit like chess with poor graphics.

    Have trided the Xcom – terror from the deep – very similar to the first.

    Thanks for your efforts – keep it going. Enjoy your holidays at the end of August
