Broken Meeple Top 10 - Essential Expansions

0 comments

I love board game expansions. Whenever they come out, I'm always interested in them.........well it depends. More of the same is all well and good but you reach a limit of how much you need. Some expansions though, change the original so much for the better that it makes it so much more enjoyable. Sometimes to the point where I won't even play the original base version any more.
Which expansions do I feel are essential for any lover of the original game to get? Which are yours, leave them in the comments below!

War Chest is an all-new bag-building war game! At the start of the game, raise your banner call (drafting) several various units into your army, which you then use to capture key points on the board. To succeed in War Chest, you must successfully manage not only your armies on the battlefield, but those that are waiting to be deployed.
Is this the best abstract of the year?

This was a hard list to do actually, so many games with great solo modes and experiences, could have easily done a Top 20 and still be talking about awesome games.

So which 10 games do I enjoy the most playing as a solo experience? What about yourselves?

DICE held a Family/Friends event last night - I limited my photos to actual games played and "pre-setup", but suffice to say the place was packed! This was a "taster" event to get feedback so even though it looks pretty much finished, they will still make even more improvements prior to opening.

Broken Meeple Videos - Carson City: The Card Game Review

0 comments
I always get a bad feeling when some game that's already good (or supposed to be good, I've yet to review Carson City) puts out a card game spinoff. A lot of the time, they tend to be lacklustre in comparison or at least never measure up to the original, but there are exceptions to the rule (I'll take Power Grid: The Card Game over the original any day, but that's a minority view).
So how does this one fare? Carson City: The Card Game! Will the scoring phase drive me to another rant?
(1) What is your favourite "card game" spin-off for another game and why?
(2) What game drives you to the biggest headache during the scoring phase?
