Broken Meeple Videos - Century Spice Road Review

This game was the hotness at the UK Games Expo and is being touted as the Splendor Killer - that's a bold claim, how much truth is there in that?

Broken Meeple Videos - UK GAMES EXPO 2017

2 videos already?! Well I did promise I would get my UK Expo roundup done soon didn't I? Now it's about an hour long and I know that long videos aren't a great thing, but this isn't going to be a norm for the channel. Reviews will be kept short, discussions will be kept to a max length and Top 10's will likely be the longest videos, but even these should be kept to a limit.

This video goes into detail about the UK Games Expo 2017. What games did I play and buy? Who did I meet? What else did I get up to? And to top it off, there's some information on the new DIZED app that I gained after sitting down with the founder during the Expo. Hope you enjoy and I'll see you on the next video, which should be the kickstart to my reviews.

04:45 - ALL THE GAMES!
39:11 - SMALL EXPO HAUL
45:22 - EVENTS AND GATHERINGS
49:50 - DIZED INTERVIEW
55:52 - CONCLUSION

Broken Meeple Videos - Season 2 FAQ Promo

OH MY GOD! IT'S HAPPENED! IT'S FINALLY HAPPENED! THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL IS BACK FOR SEASON 2!!!!!

This video is to give you some more insight into who I am, what I do, why I do it and where you can find me. Hopefully you'll enjoy it and look forward to more videos from me!

Oh and I know I'm a tiny bit out of focus compared to the background - my bad, easily remedied for future videos. Obviously the quality will improve as time goes on, but with the UK Games Expo over (my next video will be a chat about that) and the Top 100 deadline looming over the horizon, I felt I'd kept you all waiting long enough for me to tinker with equipment and editing software and I owe you some content! 

Once again, thank you for sticking with me for all this time. I appreciate all your support and I look forward to providing more video content for you to supplement my podcast and written reviews.

Season 2 Episode 14 - SOLO (Part II)

Recently the hosts of Every Night Is Game Night, also known as Jason Perez and Anthony Chatfield of Board Gamers Anonymous, invited me on for a Top Ten Solo Games collaboration. A really hard list to put together as I could have done a Top 30 really, but it had to be drilled down to 10.

It was great fun though and despite a tough time editing, there's a great show to be heard here. Part I dealt with the introductions and our list from 10 to 6. Part II deals with 5 to 1 as well as some ideas from contributors and the Peoples Choice poll we put up on the Solo BoardGamers Facebook group. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Unfair Review - You Must Be This Mean To Ride!

Awww theme parks! Even though I've gotten bored with them now, I have so many nostalgic memories not only of attending theme parks including the wonders of DisneyWorld in Orlando several times as a child, but also iconic games such as Theme Park and Rollercoaster Tycoon. I wouldn't have the time or patience for them these days, but back then in the good old days where time wasn't at an extortionate premium they were just a joy. Building the rides, managing the sideshows and food stalls, deliberating sending trains of passengers to their fiery death on the rocket launch coaster, dropping complaining guests in the lake to keep them quiet...........wow I had issues then.

But we don't see this theme in a board game very often. Why not? Surely this is a theme that's just begging for a quality game. I've got my share of building villages and caves and I've had it with these really dry, dull historical settings lately, can we have a thematic Euro game about building a theme park? Get Vital Lacerda on the design, Days of Wonder or Stonemaier to publish it, Michael Menzel to do the card art and the board and make it worker placement and it could be the most amazing game ever! Keep to less than 3 hours though please and if Wallace or Feld tries to put their fingers on it, release the hounds!

Unfair is probably my first exposure to this theme in a board game and I'm unfamiliar with the works of Good Games USA (yes it has CMON on it but GG USA kickstarted it so I'm giving them the initial credit for publishing this). But it's had some controversy over the "unfair" part, where apparently there's a lot of potenial meanness in this game in screwing other players over. A little meanness is good, too much is a bad thing for me. Are the fears warranted or a false alarm?
