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.

After a long break, I'm back with Episode 20! Podcasts are still coming but due to time commitments including a new girlfriend, the podcast will be reduced to monthly rather than 2-weekly because I need the extra time. However to make up for this, I've added a short News segment to the podcast to up the content value. In today's episode, I give my first impressions of Glass Road and Fleet, discuss Theme vs Mechanics in games and give my Top 10 Thematic Games list.

A special episode for this session, where I talk you through my 32 hour charity gaming marathon that I undertook for Tabletop Day, though I guess that makes it Tabletop Weekend really! I raised over £150 for charity and highly enjoyed the experience, despite needing some sleep afterwards! Apologies in advance - I forgot to implement my makeshift pop filter before recording - won't happen again on the next one! :-(

In today's episode: - My first impressions of Twilight Imperium 3, a major, epic, space opera of a game which FINALLY I got to play in all its glory! - I discuss the concept of owning too many games in your collection.

In today's episode, I give my first impressions of Bruges by Stefan Feld, discuss my thoughts on gamers who react badly to negative reviews and divulge my Top 10 Worker Placement Games - not to be confused with The Dice Tower's Top 10 they did recently! NB: - Apologies in advance, I'm still trying to get the settings right on my Blue Yeti microphone and it's a tough process - you MAY hear the odd light background noise from time to time, it's so sensitive!

Hey folks! Awfully sorry about the delay for the next episode in this podcast, January for me is the month of hell with regards to being a Chartered Tax Advisor as my day job. Thankfully though, January is over with and now I can get back to some solid reviews, both on the blog and on the podcast/YouTube channel. This is a new format for the podcast which I'll be sticking with now, more streamlined, organised and with more content. In today's episode, the theme is Co-Op Month!!
