Board game reviews with an accessibility focus. Persistently controversial.

Meeple Like Us is producing board game reviews and game accessibility analyses aimed at mapping out the game accessibility landscape.

Secret Hitler (2016)

In today’s ‘meandering monologue on stuff only vaguely related to the topic of the review’, let’s discuss about the accessibility of first impressions and how Secret Hitler is layers and layers of case study on how important they can be.  At least, let’s talk about that for a bit before…
