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.

Bit of a "on the nose" topic today for everyone. After my channel updates and a shoutout to GAMING INDOORS for my channel promo, I have to tackle something I wished I didn't have to. I've have worries about the board game community particularly the creator community and lately we've seen a lot of drama on social media with designers, creators, gamers etc. And I can't not give my thoughts any longer! I need to try and rekindle some of that love for the community like I had 7 years ago when I first started as a content creator!

I'm so exhausted, THANK YOU JANUARY! Being a tax accountant in the UK means that January is a hellish month! And with lockdown + remote working it's even harder this year. So on the last day of the worst working month of the year, I want a ton of board games to talk about! So after I give my channel updates, my channel promos come back with a highlight of Board Gaming Perspective! Support small creators because others do not!

I'm not just a board gamer, I'm a PC gamer as well! And this episode highlights that fact. First of all I go through my channel updates as well as a brief message to the community to not divide themselves. Then I have a special shoutout to a viewer at littleplastictrain.com who has a Kickstarter coming soon where you can pimp up your copies of Ticket to Ride. Then the meat of the episode where I talk about my current favourite PC games I play and then go over my Top 5 Board Games That Were Based on Video Games.

Hello 2021!! Hopefully we can have a better year but it's certainly not getting off to the best start outside of gaming is it? I'll talk about some channel updates and my life in general first, then give you two reviews of 7 Wonders: Agora and New York Zoo. Then I'll skim over some upcoming releases of 2021 and give my thoughts as to what I'm looking forward to.

Possibly the most heart-felt I've been during a podcast! On this bumper length end episode marking the last podcast put out for 2020, I take a look back over the channel and what I've achieved (or not) throughout this year, reflecting on my experiences what worked/didn't work. Has the channel grown or do the views say otherwise? While talking about that I'll also lay on some plans set in motion for what the channel can offer in 2021.

To make room on the shelves I had to sell off a bunch of games from the collection. So many that I think it was worth talking about my reasons why in a podcast episode! So after I talk about some channel updates, I'll explain why all these games didn't have what it takes to remain on the shelf.
