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?
I 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.
The 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!
