Broken Meeple Videos - Reef Review

0 comments
In the game Reef, players take on the role of the reef itself, alternating turns in which they carefully select the colors and patterns in which to grow and expand — the more beautiful the reef, the more points they score!
Reef is suited for players aged 8 and up. While it could take thousands of years for a coral reef to grow, a game of Reef should take only 30 minutes.
Reef has the potential to be the best gateway game of 2018..............did it succeed?

Broken Meeple Videos - Coimbra Review

0 comments

Coimbra introduces an innovative new dice mechanism in which the dice players draft each round are used in multiple different ways and have an impact on many aspects of their decision making. While there are many paths to victory, players should always seek to optimize their opportunities with every roll of the dice. Combined with ever-changing synergies of the citizens, expeditions, and monasteries, no two games of Coimbra will ever be the same!

Will the dice and card mechanics be enough to get over the fact that the theme is classic "lazy Euro style"?

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?

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.
