Description Edit | History

We hold this truth to be self-evident: Not all games are created equal!

Power to the Meeple was created Jeffrey Norman Borbeau and co-host John-Michael Gariepy, both former founders of the MGP: Session Impressions podcast. We’re advocates for the little meeple. Each episode is a strike at the heart of bourgeoisie gaming, and a vote for the proletariat. Down with Big Brother! Up with the Meeple!

Our episodes are filled with game reviews, news, discussion and interviews from within the nerd-verse.

Since the revolution will not be televised, we need your help. Don’t forget to like and share liberally with your fellow citizens. Be vigilant, and stay tuned to our channel, website, and BGG Guild for further podcasts. Be good to one another. That is all.

Ricky has taken a brief hiatus from Power to the Meeple to go attend college like a smarty pants. What a nerd.
