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.

A new reboot of the original Mansions of Madness, an entertaining "choose your own adventure" style horror game set in the neverending Cthulhu mythos. Whereas the original was a good game it had a lot of fiddly book-keeping and could be easily broken by the DM if it wasn't set up correctly. This new edition has gone down the technology route and brought in an app to represent 50% of the game. Does it work, let's find out in my review of Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition.

WE'RE FINALLY HERE!! This is the Top 10 of the Top 100 - my most favourite games! I'm sure you'll disagree with some and agree with others, that's cool, that's the beauty of these lists, but I hope that this Top 100 has given you some insight into the type of games I like and maybe even given you some ideas as to your next purchasing option. Enjoy!! EDIT - I realise originally there was a 2 minute silence at the end - my apologies, I was pretty rushed. I've now replaced the file with a re-edited, corrected one.
