HULK SMASH........A LOT! - Legendary Marvel: World War Hulk Review

0 comments
Sadly I never grew up on comics, only animated series and of course now the Marvel MCU. So I've missed out on a lot of cool stories with the Marvel crew and just haven't the time these days to start (or even begin to find out where I'm supposed to enter from, there's so many comics). A lot of good things are said about the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk storylines though, even Thor Ragnarok apparently borrowed some of the source material and even though I wouldn't necessarily know what elements those were, boy was that movie awesome!

Legendary Marvel is now on I think its 16th expansion. Part of me wants it to stop, but then part of me doesn't care. I have a huge wooden vault box for all my Legendary games and even though I'll never be able to take it to a game night ever due to the size/weight, it works nicely at home for storage. And this is the biggest expansion yet, pipping even the likes of X-Men. Over 400 cards, it's insane! But Hulk has been somewhat absent from all the other expansions out there when you think about it. We got his Core version.........and then what? So for those who have missed out on the Hulkness, well consider this the expansion for you!

Does it feel thematic, are the new mechanics fun, is the game still stupendously difficult and should this be considered as a first or later buy in the franchise?

My favourite game of all time (as of 2017, will it be the same for 2018?) gets the final expansion via Kickstarter! It took a while, but was it worth the time and hype?

As a bonus for you, at the end of the video, you can check out my hands-on overview of the Collectors Box that will be available on retail soon!

Broken Meeple Videos - Brass: Lancashire/Birmingham Review

0 comments
Brass: Lancashire — first published as Brass — is an economic strategy game that tells the story of competing cotton entrepreneurs in Lancashire during the industrial revolution. You must develop, build, and establish your industries and network so that you can capitalize demand for iron, coal and cotton.

Brass: Lancashire, the 2018 edition from Roxley Games, reboots the original Warfrog Games edition of Brass with new artwork and components, as well as a few rules changes.

I had a shaky first encounter with Brass when I saw the old version and the app. Can this new glossy version with a streamlined ruleset and fine tuning bring me back?

Broken Meeple Videos - Council of 4 Review

0 comments
The Empire, formed by three Kingdoms, has a period of wealth and prosperity. Each Kingdom is governed by a council of four nobles. The members of six influential families sit around in the councils and lead the Kingdoms. Players hold the roles of rich merchants who seek to obtain permits to build their own Emporium inside the cities of the three kingdoms. Whoever take more permits, while also placing their Emporium in the best places, will be the most famous merchant and will win the game. But pay attention to the Emperor! He can allow you to build without permits!

A super fast Euro is a good start, but with that high price tag, is this one of those cases where maybe the production went a bit overboard? Check out the Council of 4 Review!

Broken Meeple Top Ten - Long Games (Or Games That Aren't Short!)

0 comments
I usually say that I'm not a fan of a game that goes on too long. And for me long isn't as long as some people might say. Many will only call a game long if it goes over 4 hours. But with jobs, families, real life, commitments, etc how can a game that's over 2.5 to 3 hours be considered short? Well I do like some games that go beyond the 2.5 hour mark and these are my 10 favourites!

Note that of course "long" is very subjective so if you want to call this "Top 10 Games That Aren't Short" then go ahead. 2.5 - 3 plus hours for me is long and you probably will never get me to play a game or enjoy one that's 4 hours plus.

Broken Meeple Videos - Zombicide: Green Horde Review

0 comments
This sequel to the Zombicide: Black Plague will bring players back into a world of deadly medieval fantasy, this time filled with infected orcs and goblins who will put survivors to the ultimate test. This green menace is not only stronger than their human counterparts, but they also tend to gather into massive hordes that ambush the survivors when they least expect it. Can Green Horde offer anything new to a franchise, which is starting to get a bit too repetitive?
