Broken Meeple Videos - Ex Libris Review

0 comments
You have only a week before the Mayor's Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved! The Inspector is a tough cookie and will use her Official Checklist to grade your library on several criteria including shelf stability, alphabetical order, and variety — and don't think she'll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You need shrewd planning and cunning tactics (and perhaps a little magic) to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!
One of the most colourful games to come out this year, can a theme that at first glance doesn't sound like fun come out strong?

Broken Meeple Videos - Mystic Vale: Mana Storm Review

0 comments
A Card Crafting Game of Nature’s Power! The campaign to restore Gaia's realm rages on and other druidic clans combating the curse have joined the ranks. And it’s not just druids who have heeded the call; other creatures have joined the fight, eager for a day when all are free from the accursed blight.
The Mana Storm expansion adds new advancement and vale cards to the base Mystic Vale game, giving players more card crafting options and exciting new possibilities for combos. New leader cards grant abilities that can be upgraded to become even more powerful! Amulets feature unique effects and greater variety over regular mana tokens.
But is the price point of this saga getting a little out of hand?

Broken Geek Chat - Justice League

0 comments
So the Justice League movie is finally upon us and it's had its fair share of scary re-shoots and issues during its filming schedule. However we've all wanted to see the Justice League on the big screen so despite what critics may have said, I wanted to see it and enjoy myself.

Well it does have problems. . . . . but it has one focal strong point that makes it a fun movie to watch. Find out more in my Geek Chat review - first half is non-spoiler, the second half has spoilers, but don't worry I'll give you plenty of warning!

Broken Meeple Videos - Mysterium: Secrets & Lies Review

0 comments
Mysterium: Secrets & Lies consists of six new characters, six new locations, six new items, and 18 story cards. This latter group of cards can replace the object cards in the game, with each card representing one way in which the ghost died. Now instead of trying to get each investigator to identify an object — a singular item that wouldn't have much nuance to it — the ghost must instead use the dream cards to convey the story of their demise, something far more challenging.

More of the same is always good, but how do the new story cards change up the game? Are they a waste of time or an auto-include from this day forth?

Broken Meeple Videos - Downforce Review

Indulgence was a good start from Restoration Games, how does their racing game hold up? It's got some pedigree behind it and I've heard good things from the Dice Tower crew. But Formula 1 is such a boring style of racing - can it really win me over?

(Note: - that's just me, if you love F1, go you!!)

Broken Meeple Videos - Indulgence Review

Restoration Games is a publisher that is resurrecting old long forgotten games and giving them a facelift. Sounds like a cool idea - so how does their first fare Indulgence measure up? Especially when I realise I don't own any trick taking games. . . .

0 comments
On behalf of a viewer, this is the next Top Ten on my list and to be fair I've been meaning to do this one for quite a while. I live alone and don't get two player games to the table that often, but there are some fantastic games that only cater for 2 players and I feel I'm missing out! Oh for the future significant other who enjoys board games! And here are my 10 favourites!

Broken Meeple Videos - Legend Of The Five Rings Core Set Review

0 comments
Fantasy Flight Games have rekindled an old AEG flame by bringing us back Legend of the Five Rings in an LCG format. Aside from beautiful artwork, does this game have enough to stand up to the other LCG greats out there? And will they ever turn over a new leaf and include more value in their core sets? Hear my perspective from a 1 x Core Set and 3 x Core Set view.

I've waited all year for this and Justice League to come out. JL will have to wait for another couple of weeks, but Thor Ragnarok is here in all its retro stylistic glory. Was it worth the anticipation?

Broken Meeple Videos - Le Havre (Mayfair 2017) Review

0 comments
Note: - this review was recorded under the old format - unfortunately it was delayed in getting uploaded. Le Havre barely missed my Top 100, literally #101. So I still really like it, but it has issues as well that get in the way of me playing it more often then I would love. Find out why in this review!
