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.

On this episode I team up with Michael from Toucan Play That Game to talk about a controversial post on BoardGameGeek written by Ignacy from Portal Games. The post can be found at:

Michael and I talk about this post, what are our thoughts? We talk about game balance, reviewer critiquing and whether it's right to have knee-jerk reactions about games being broken.

Yes, don't worry there's a new official podcast episode coming out this week with a special guest. But I couldn't resist to put this out. My P-Log's don't just have to be movie reviews, it can be anything geekdom related. And here, we've had the biggest change in Doctor Who history!!

SPOILER ALERT!!

The new Doctor is a woman!! For the first time in the show's history. What are my thoughts on this as a life long fan of the show? Hear them now!

Subject to so much controversy. So many haters. So many sexist backlash from trolls in dungeons. But did it deserve it all? How bad can it be? About time I found out.........

I was about to write my thoughts on Facebook about the new movie and I thought.......you know what? I got a microphone? Why don't I just record it? Now doing a V-Log would take too long in setup etc, but what about a P-Log? So let's experiment, here is a short podcast with my immediate thoughts on Spiderman: Homecoming literally after only just getting home from the movie.

Let me know your thoughts and whether you'd like to hear more of these! Take care!

Recently the hosts of Every Night Is Game Night, also known as Jason Perez and Anthony Chatfield of Board Gamers Anonymous, invited me on for a Top Ten Solo Games collaboration. A really hard list to put together as I could have done a Top 30 really, but it had to be drilled down to 10.

A quick broadcast today, just to go over my plans and schedule for the upcoming UK Games Expo on 2nd-4th June 2017. Where can you find me and what games am I likely to make a beeline for?

A tongue in cheek episode for you today before I head down to Devon for a week's break. We all love playing games with the community, but I'm sure all of us have that small list of gamer types that we would all avoid if we had the chance or perhaps that one personality trait just rubs you the wrong way.

So as a bit of fun, after I talk about some new appearances I'll be doing at conventions and on other podcasts, I'll give my "tongue in cheek" Top Ten Annoying Gamers.
