Wingspan

I was excited to be able to borrow this game to play at home. Staff is very friendly, flexible, and knowledgeable. This is a great way to try before you buy in a relaxed, no pressure scenario. Bonus, you can probably buy the game new from them if it's something you want for yourself! I'm looking forward to playing my next new game with The Meeple's Cafe.

Mysterium

A very fun asymmetric co-operative game that sets up one person as a ghost and the others as psychics attempting solve their murder based on visions from the ghost. This game lies entirely in creative interpretation and is a great option for creative problem-solvers sick of rule-heavy games.

Legendary Base Game

My wife and I had been wanting to play this game for a long time. The owner helped us set it all up and explained the rules and we were on our way. We love coming to Meeples to play their huge selection of games. We've been at least five times in the past few weeks and can't wait to go back to play more games. This place is amazing and the owners are so incredibly nice and helpful. The food is amazing as well!

8 Bit Box

I took two kids I volunteer with, both age 10. They loved all the game choices! We learned to play 8 Bit Box. We played the pac man part of the game. It was strategic and a great throwback to the arcade game. It was simple enough for kids, but fun for adults. I would recommend taking kids for a fun afternoon or evening. It's also a great way to try out games before you purchase them for home. The gentleman who was running the cafe was very patient and a great help!

Lanterns

My husband and I really enjoyed "Lanterns The Harvest Festival". It is a 2-4 player game where you are trying to accumulate the most honor by presenting lanterns at the Harvest Festival. The mechanics are pretty simple to pick up. You place tiles on the lake and matching tiles get you bonus lanterns, but you also get a tile based on your position relative to the tile and your opponents gets the same (i.e. everyone gets at least one lantern a turn). You are accumulating these and presenting 4 of a kind, 3 sets of 2, of 7 unique (out of 7) lanterns to get a score tile from a stack. Those stacks are set up in descening order of points, so the first to score one of those gets the most points. There are just a couple other mechanics that influence the game, but nothing complicated and it made for a fun new game to try.

Century Golem Edition

Came to play new games with my parents, having researched some games but otherwise having little insight about how to play. Darcy was fantastic by recommending several additional games within our skill level (and time constraint) - including Century which we weren't previously looking at. She also took the time to help us set up and explain how to play. We had a blast playing it but due to my fathers color blindness, it was somewhat challenging. When we came back several days later to play more games, we mentioned the color issue we had with Century last time. Darcy was very quick to recommend to us the Golem expansion that had different colored pieces that worked much better for us. We ended up buying Century Golem that day from Meeples Cafe (I love that they had games right there for purchase! Very competitive price to Amazon or other sellers AND you can support a local business!) We have been so impressed with the whole experience each and every time we go! This place is highly recommended!!

Potion Explosion

Potion Explosion was fun for my husband and I. We both liked the theme of mixing and drinking potions, and you get to play with marbles. Basically, you are grabbing ingredients (marbles) to make your potions. The "explosion" comes in when you take an inregient via your normal turn action, if it causes marbles of the same color to roll into each other then they explode and you get to take them too. *There may be a slight challenge in the game if you are colorblind. My husband could not differentiate the red from the black on the potion tiles due to his colorblindness. They didn't seem to have differentiating patterns to refer to either, which sometimes helps him with game component colors.

Clank!

We love Clank! Great deck builder and fun to explore. Can turn into a race game which adds great tension. Great for all ages, my 8 and 11 year old are avid players and look to get this to table as often as possible. Highly recommend
