Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Broken Meeple

The Broken Meeple is a show based in the UK set up in August 2013 that reports on board and card games from the perspective of Luke Hector, a born-again hard-core gamer. The podcast gives my first impressions of recent board games played, discusses various gaming related subjects that are topical and recently now issues a new Top 10 list every episode chosen by you, the gamers on BoardGameGeek. The aim of the podcast is to give a fun and interesting look on the board gaming hobby whilst not being afraid of going against the hype when necessary. The podcast can also be subscribed to on ITunes.

It's been sweltering in the UK lately so I'm recording this podcast while melting into a small little puddle. But the Dice Tower Awards have been announced and just like a few episodes ago, I'm going to give my thoughts on the results including details of the games I personally voted on. Did I match well? Do I hate one of the games getting all the love over others........well yeah obviously! Listen in!

A good mix of content today and within a good space of time - mainly because in the UK it's well hot and I'm melting......melting................... Firstly I give a brief description of UNCON, a board game convention in Ramsgate, UK geared towards families and younger players. Then while describing the volunteer work I did at Portsmouth Comic Con teaching board games, I give my thoughts on what you should do and not do when presenting a board game library for such an event. And then to wrap things up, I resurrect the "One More Game?" segment with Among the Stars.

Sorry guys, I thought I uploaded this last week but apparently I hadn't! Shows how much is on my mind these days! :P But here you go, a new new podcast episode with some tweaks to the musical format as I wanted to give it a little bit of an update since the whole software calamity. I'll try to get the next out a lot quicker guys, maybe after I come back from UNCON 3.0 later in April.

Sorry its been a while guys - work is causing me no end of sleepless nights and my recent PC calamity didn't help! That's why this episode is a little more "slapdash" than usual. But bear with me, next episode should see a return to form! In this episode I take on two main topics - firstly I reflect on my recent experiences at AIRECON, the growing convention in Harrogate run by Mark Cooke and his team. This time I brought my girlfriend along who's not a gamer by nature - so how did it turn out?

After a brief hiatus, it's time to get back into podcasting! In this one hour episode I run through my experiences at Handycon - the new convention in the UK that's building up every year. Allow me to talk to you about some specific games I played such as Welcome to Centerville, CO2 and Nemesis. After that I continue the Broken Memories segment with a talk about one of my first ever purchases, Citadels and then I have a lot to talk about regarding the future ideas I have for reviews, podcasting and new potential ventures, but I need your feedback and thoughts to assist.

SPOILER WARNING! There's a lot to talk about with the new Star Wars movie. The critics love it, a lot of fans loved it. I then watched the movie and really enjoyed it also. But then the fans starting hating it. Was it for legit reasons? Are fans clinging on to theories too tightly? Or were there some actual issues with the movie? There will be spoilers, be warned! Oh and new podcast episode coming very soon!
