As Maggi and Jason head to BGGCon 2017, we wanted to leave all of you some listening nuggets of movie, shows, books, and board game thoughts and opinions.

They cover a wide range of topics from Wonder Woman to soundtracks, latest books they are reading, to games they have been playing and many random topics in between.

So sit back and enjoy the randomness that has become the Meeples Included Podcast!

This week presents a new title with the same talking format. ChitChat is now going to be Meeples Included Podcast. Maggi and Jason are working on some new art and switching everything over to the new branding.

BUT! While they are working on that, they did manage to find a few minutes to get together and talk about their latest geek culture interests and games they have been playing, which also includes a impromptu (Who are they kidding, the whole podcast is impromptu), Kickstarter segment.

Sit back, relax, and fill your lovely earholes with some nonesensical gabbing, ranging from purses to movies to board games, and all the randomness they come to deliver in this hour plus long episode!

Just making it under the bell ringing the end of March for this month's podcast! Yaaayyy for waiting til last minute /sigh.

This episode Maggi and Jason talk about teaching games. What we do to prep if we know it's a new game we plan on teaching, our general take on teaching games for different situations, and how we handle certain situations that arise.

Of course, a ChitChat podcast would not be complete if we also didn't venture off topic to talk about Pokemon Duel, Primus, Kickstarter, and other random ramblings that pop into our heads.

Stop Thief
