Assembly from Wren Games joins exalted company with its accessibility teardown - one of a small handful of games that receive As and Bs across the board! Wonderful work from Wren Games:

Scythe from Stonemaier Games is a monster of a game, and it merits a monster of an accessibility teardown. There are lots of great design lessons in here that should be observed.

It's time for our second Patreon funded editorial of the month! This time it's on why I don't think reporting on play counts will give readers the trust in a review they think they want:

Hope everyone UKGE is having a great time, and those gearing up for International Tabletop Day are likewise! Maybe our accessibility teardown of Secrets from Repos Production will be useful in your plans!

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's time for our new review, and this time we tackle the epic Tigris and Euphrates from Fantasy Flight Games. It's a masterclass in abstraction and one to definitely check out.

Okay, here it is! The review nobody ever asked for but I felt compelled to write anyway. We often take a swing at Monopoly, but today let me do you the actual courtesy of *explaining* why it's a terrible game.

The MLU BGG Wordpress Plugin was just updated to 1.6.2:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/meeple-like-us-boardgamegeek/

It now lets you set arbitrary labels, incorporates a few bug fixes, and will include a shortcode that lets you link, if you like, to the code of ethics we're releasing soooooon.

Morning all! Our second Patron funded special feature is this - our new hobbyist media code of ethics and code of conduct. It's published under a CC-BY 4.0 licence, so you can use, adapt and remix as desired.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/code-of-ethics-1-0/

Discussion around this issue on Twitter verges on the toxic these days, so I'm not going to debate any of it here. Instead, I direct anyone with queries to our Frequently Imagined Questions in the first instance:

Morning all - it's time for our new review! It's Castles of Burgundy from Ravensburger

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/castles-of-burgundy-2011/

It's a top-tier eurogame often available for the same price as a bargain basement mainstream game and it's well worth your attention.

I know I said I'd shut up about ethics for a good long while, but come on. Here's an (extra) special feature on the ethical way to talk about plagiarism and malpractice in posts and vlogs.

Happy Saturday everyone. Today's accessibility teardown is Railroad Ink from CMON. We have Opinions on its business model but otherwise there's a reasonable amount of good news in the box.

It's time for our first Patreon funded special feature for July! It's not a top ten! It's just... a ten(ish). Ten(ish) games with great design lessons for accessibility. If you were a game designer emulating what you could, you'd be doing p. well.

Happy Wednesday everyone. It's new review time and this week we're talking about Champions of Midgard from Grey Fox Games.

https://meeplelikeus.co.uk/champions-of-midgard-2015/

It's like Lords of Waterdeep has unprotected sex with a game of craps.
