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.

Hey folks, thanks for tuning in! 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. Is there a limit to which buying more games is counter-intuitive? - My Top 10 Essential Expansions - out of the games I've played, which expansions do I believe are a must-buy for the good ones?

Not bowing down to superstition, here is Episode 13 of the Broken Meeple podcast. 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!!

HELLO! I'm back! Sorry for the quiet period, but Arkham Horror Month really required my full devotion and I was away for a week in the later part of October. But now normal service has resumed and we get started with first impressions on Shadows over Camelot and Galaxy Trucker. In addition we revisit a recent zombie game which deserves a slight . . . alteration. . . to my thoughts about it.

And we're back! Sorry I should say "I'm back!" Episode 5 of The Broken Meeple podcast is up and ready for listening! In today's episode, I reflect on two new games that I partook in during a recent Portsmouth On Board gaming night. In Last Night On Earth, I test out the Survivors by attempting to refuel our our truck and survive the zombie onslaught. In Gambit 7 I get my taste of what Wits & Wagers is all about with this small scale version of the popular party game by Days of Wonder. Finally, a taste of things to come in Arkham Horror Month!
