How many accessibility observations can an average Meeple Like Us post fit into eight categories?

To find out you'll need to check our teardown of Wits and Wagers Family from @NorthStarGames.

Winner gets a chicken dinner! That they pay for themselves!

Hey hey - it's time for our first Patreon funded editorial of the month. This one is on embodied experience of disability and the awkward appropriation of being (relatively) abled and yet working for accessibility in games.

It's time for our second Patreon funded editorial of the month. Currently this topic is much occupying my thoughts - is board game accessibility a lost cause, or an unwon cause?

It's our third birthday today and apparently we're celebrating by giving you our accessibility teardown of Eminent Domain: Microcosm.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/eminent-domain-microcosm-2014-acc...

It's okay if you didn't get us anything though. It's fine. It's okay.

it's fine.

It's our third birthday, and one of our special features of this month is a look back at the last year of the site. Stats, figures, and a thousand elephants. Data for days.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/happy-third-birthday-to-us/

I think most important here is the section on Patreon where I listed all of the posts that exist on this site because of our generous patrons. Literally none of that would exist without the lifeblood of pledges that are sent this site's way.

Every game that gets covered on Meeple Like Us is another chance for someone to find a game they can play with people they love.

I'm biased of course, but I believe all of our patrons and supporters are genuinely making gaming a more welcoming and inclusive space.

Sometimes all it takes is for someone to know that there's a game out there for them. Or to see that people in a community value their participation to the point they're willing to pay money to support it. I think that's what our patrons do via Meeple Like Us.

As we head into the fourth year of Meeple Like Us, I'd like to remind you that we have a Patreon and every pledge makes a real difference

https://patreon.com/meeplelikeus

I don't want anyone pledging a penny they can't afford but if you want to share this status update for our birthday I would appreciate it!

Genuinely I get regular emails from people saying that they used the site to find games they didn't even know they could play and every single game we cover on the site could be what makes the difference to someone.

I have been nervous about publishing this review since I knew what was going to be in it. I want to talk about Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr from Hub Games.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/holding-on-the-troubled-life-of-b...

Consider this review to have a massive content warning for bereavement.

So, Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr from Hub Games was a complex game for me to process.

The next thing to consider is 'How playable is it likely to be for you?'.

It's time for our accessibility teardown. Spoilers have been avoided:

Happy Wednesday everyone! If you fancy a game that is basically the gamification of loss aversion, then boy do I have something for you. Today's review is Samurai from Fantasy Flight Games.

Bonus post from Meeple Like Us tonight! Something of a test balloon - our review of the Zombicide: Tactics and Shotguns app from Asmodee Digital.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/zombicide-tactics-and-shotguns-20...

We don't usually review apps so I'd appreciate thoughts on whether we should!
