Persistently controversial. Bad to the board.

Meeple Like Us is engaged in mapping out the accessibility landscape of board-games, providing comprehensive accessibility teardowns of popular titles. The intention is to build up a useful resource for those players that cannot simply take a game down from the shelf and assume it's playable. Check out our master list for progress to date. We post new reviews on a Wednesday, and new teardowns on a Saturday.
