The Meeple League is proud to announce the launch of our re-imagined website at www.MeepleLeague.com. As part of our ongoing effort to help grow the boardgame-tournament community, we have turned our website into a destination for tournament players. Our new features include:
- A Magazine section with strategy articles written by some of the best gamers around.
- An Events schedule that collects information about board game tournaments from around the country.
- An ever-growing collection of game master (GM) Tools and information to help everyone who wants to run a tournament.
- Online leagues so players can compete while waiting for the next live, in-person event. Our first two leagues will be for Thurn & Taxis and then Agricola.
Meanwhile, we will continue to sanction events and keep track of Meeple League standings throughout the year. In 2017 our featured games will be:
- Lords of Waterdeep
- Ticket To Ride
- Saint Petersburg
- Stone Age
- Power Grid
- Puerto Rico
- 7 Wonders
- Castles of Burgundy
We will be awarding a plaque at the end of the year to the winner of each event, along with our Player of the Year.
Three conventions have already committed to running Meeple League events in 2017:
If you want your local convention, or even your friendly neighborhood game store, to run events that count toward Meeple League standings then tell your local organizer to contact us. Sanctioning an event is free – all you need to do is run tournaments using our format, which is based on years of success with board game tournaments.
Here’s hoping the board game hobby continues to grow, and that there are more and better tournaments for hobbyists to play in!
