Board game reviews with an accessibility focus. Persistently controversial.

Meeple Like Us is producing board game reviews and game accessibility analyses aimed at mapping out the game accessibility landscape. Our intention is to build up a useful resource for those players that cannot simply take a board game down from the shelf and assume it's playable. Check out our master list for progress to date. We post new board game reviews on a Wednesday, and new accessibility teardowns on a Saturday. You can also find an index of all our board game reviews
