Norman and Amy Rule, Marcy Morelli, Rob Kircher and Rich Shay created the Meeple League to expand the world of competitive board gaming. Linking common events between Total Confusion in Massachusetts and Games Club of Maryland (Euroquest) they began the creation of a multi-event competitive board gaming community.
A Little History
The Meeple League was created in 2014 when the founders realized that competitive board gaming did not have champions trying to expand the concept. They met and decided to work on making competitive board gaming part of more events.
Creating a list of popular games and a set of guidelines based on their experience as Game Masters for tournament play, the Meeple League unified some of the events at Total Confusion and Euroquest to create the first Meeple League season.
After 2 seasons, the founders realized that real growth will come from engaging the players first and then the event managers. So the Meeple League is being recast as a community site for board gamers who like to play in organized competition as well as with their friends.
Avid board gamer Randy Buehler has joined the crew running the Meeple League. Randy’s experience online and at live events with the Magic the Gathering community makes Randy the perfect addition to the Meeple League. Randy will be editing the magazine content and creating the online tournament experience.
