Welcome to the Meeple Like Us Top Ten Best Board Games 2017 Edition! We are genuinely thrilled to have you with us while Michael and Pauline argue in public in the nerdiest possible ways.
Oh my good golly gosh, 2017 is finally coming to an end. Remember how in 2016 we just wondered what celebrity was going to die next? Now we wonder which one will be outed as a sexual predator sufficiently vile as to taint their entire body of work. What new horrors will 2018 bring? To what fresh new hells will we find ourselves becoming gradually numb as shock turns to acceptance turns to mundanity turns to changing the channel to Celebrity Big Brother? I don’t know, and it’s that uncertainty that makes the coming of a new year so exciting. And horrifying. And exciting.
What a time to be alive!
We’ve been doing Meeple Like Us now for around twenty months, and we’ve formed a number of opinions during that time. You might have noticed! To cap off a year of telling you what we think, we’re going to tell you more about what we think but in a slightly different way. You mostly see my thoughts reflected in the reviews and ratings because I’m the one who writes most of them. Mrs Meeple and I agree on a lot of things, but we thought you might be interested to know where our opinions diverge. For that we’re going to talk about our personal top tens, and present them to you for your consideration!
Note here that we’re doing this based on the games, not on their accessibility – we’ll provide a link to each accessibility teardown so you can make your own decision as to whether any of these games are likely to be appropriate for your needs.
Make yourself comfortable. Grab a nice cup of hot cocoa. Put your favourite playlist on Spotify. Situate a pettable dog on your lap. If you don’t have a pettable dog, go out and get one. This is going to be a long post. That’s why it’s been broken up into pages – use the links above to explore our various nooks and crannies! If you just want to skip to the end without any of the commentary, and damn your eyes if you do because it took us hours to write this, you can click on the very last link to take you to a full table.
