Broken Meeple Videos - Innovation Deluxe Review

0 comments
A deluxe box set of Innovation and all its expansions.

All are presented in the third edition (Asmadi) style.

However as awesome as this game is (and you can read my reviews in the description links below) - I think Asmadi need to learn what the word DELUXE means.........expect high praise and a large rant in this video review!

Otys is an optimization and development game co-published by Pearl Games and Libellud. Optimize your game in order to match the depth of your divers, their special abilities and the Colony bonuses. That is how you will supply the best contracts and win. So yes, ignore what the cover is portraying - this is a very different game to what you're expecting! But is it still good?

Broken Meeple Videos - Azul Review

0 comments
In the game Azul, players take turns drafting colored tiles from suppliers to their player board. Later in the round, players score points based on how they've placed their tiles to decorate the palace. Extra points are scored for specific patterns and completing sets; wasted supplies harm the player's score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Is it as beautiful as they say? Is it too mean for some? Is this one of the first abstract games to actually cater fine for multiplayer? Find out more in the review!

Broken Meeple Videos - Lisboa Review

0 comments
Lisboa is a game about the reconstruction of Lisboa after the great earthquake of 1755. It's also another Vital Lacerda title which means it's going to be extremely heavy, but also extremely thematic.

Could it be another addition to my collection alongside his other games? Will the historical based theme put me off or will the game's mechanics save it? Where does it fit alongside my other Lacerda games?

Find out in the longest ever review done by The Broken Meeple - clocking in to nearly 30 minutes!
