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.

Cube Quest review

Cube Quest (2013)

You know all those fancy gaming tables that the most dedicated of board-gamers have? The ones that are the cost of a small car and the size of a horse’s coffin? I always wondered why they had a recessed playing area – it seemed uncomfortable and awkward, like…
