Survive The Horde – Kickstarter review

A few weeks ago, I posted a preview of a game that was coming soon to Kickstarter – Survive The Horde from Laffgasm Games.  That game is now on Kickstarter and is closing in on the finish line.  Here is a review that I put together for the game to let you know what I think of it, and show you a little bit of the game play.

If this looks like something you want to add to your game collection, head on over to their Kickstarter page and back it.  The campaign ends on Wednesday, November 23.

The Chubby Meeple is now on YouTube!

Hi folks!  It’s been a couple of weeks since anything new has hit the Chubby Meeple blog.  For that, I apologize.  I began working a new j-o-b during the second shift hours.  This has caused my to reschedule my days in order to get playthroughs done so I can get reviews posted to the blog.  Since most of my game group works first shift, it has proven a bit difficult to get together in order to play games as often as I did before the new position.  This is the main reason for my lack of recent posts.  However, I return with good news.  In addition to the blog, I have launched (and will continue to improve) the Chubby Meeple YouTube channel!  The YouTube channel will allow me to post more frequently because I seem to talk faster than I type.  How did this come to be?

instagamersnetworkI had the privilege of joining the InstaGamers Network on YouTube.  The InstaGamers Network is a collection of board game reviewers and bloggers who met through Instagram and have begun posting a bi-weekly video on their YouTube channel.  Contributors to the channel include @boardgamingpinupgirl, @thegamingmaven, @theboardgamerenegade, @nettersplays, @shinyhappymeeples, @charmbo.gamer, @joesondow, @nerdofwisdom, @saveyourgame, and now … yours truly.  This past week, I was a contributor on the group’s eleventh video, deckbuilding games (I start at 10:28 and talk about Chthulhu: A Deck-Building Game).  While filming my segment, I caught the YouTube bug.

ravingspireThe first entry into the new Chubby Meeple YouTube channel is an unboxing video for Ravingspire – a deck-building game for 1-6 players that takes place on a rotating dungeon board (designed by Cory Scanlan and Joshua Carlson and published by Vorpal Chainsword Games).  I hope you enjoy.  Subscribe to the channel.  Comment below or on YouTube.  Share with your friends!
