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.

It was a blast and I want to give my views on the convention and talk about a ton of games I played both old and new!

It's been sweltering in the UK lately so I'm recording this podcast while melting into a small little puddle. But the Dice Tower Awards have been announced and just like a few episodes ago, I'm going to give my thoughts on the results including details of the games I personally voted on. Did I match well? Do I hate one of the games getting all the love over others........well yeah obviously! Listen in!
