Ten Smaller Board Game YouTubers You Should Check Out!

0 comments
Everytime someone on Facebook asks "who's your favourite YouTube content creator for board games, it's the same people mentioned all the time! The same guests appearing on shows, whether they are big on board games or not, but what about the little channels? And I don't mean myself, though I am small, I'm talking about all the other content creators in our community who have smaller channels, but love to talk about games none the less. Where's the support for them? Well I'm going to do my part and raise your awareness of 10 Other YouTubers you can give your suppport to. The Conditions? Only that they are preparing reviews predominantly on their own channel and they have less than 10,000 subscribers. If you like the video enough, I'll even consider doing another 10 at a later time.

The Broken Meeple Show - EPISODE ZERO

0 comments
Hold on!! What's this? 

Well everyone, I recently did a massive relaunch of my whole channel "The Broken Meeple" - if you check out my YouTube channel you can see the after effects of that. Well that also means the podcast got a refresh, with a brand new look, ACTUAL VIDEO CONTENT OF ME SPEAKING via OBS software and a promise to maintain a regular production (95% certain) of 1 episode of around 30 minutes each Sunday. 

So rather than delete all the old content, I've created this Episode Zero to explain everything in detail and show you on screen (audio fans don't worry, I describe everything!). I will say OBS was a "pain" to say the least and my audio isn't 100% perfect, but it's a learning curve so expect improvements going forward!

Top 10 Deck Builders (Last Video Before Refresh)

0 comments
This one is a bonus episode! I mentioned to the astute few, that I had one more episode recorded before I did a big refresh of the channel. I couldn't change the footage so i figured I would just experiment with some new format changes and release the list as a bonus pre-update video. Be interested to hear about your choices for the list but also any general comments on the differences from previous videos - music, transitions, lower thirds, style, intro, outro, all sorts. #brokenmeeple #topten #lukehector

Season 4 Episode 7 - What's Been Happening?!

0 comments
It's been a while due to a mix of reasons, mainly because of my daily YouTube content I've put out to keep you all sane (or not) during COVID. But it's time you got an update as to what else I've been doing as there's plenty going on behind the scenes.

In addition there are few interesting app/PNP additions to some games that are worth a discussion and at the end, there's my final 3 questions for the Q & A.........please submit more questions! :P

7th Continent "Extended" Review

0 comments
I tried to be as "animated" as I could, but at the time of filming I had a back injury from a pulled muscle making my motion very limited! :P In The 7th Continent, a solo or cooperative "choose-your-own-adventure" exploration board game, you choose a character and begin your adventure on your own or with a team of other explorers. Inspired by the Fighting Fantasy book series, you will discover the extent of this wild new land through a variety of terrain and event cards. In a land fraught with danger and wonders, you have to use every ounce of wit and cunning to survive, crafting tools, weapons, and shelter to ensure your survival. Top 20 of BGG - one of the best solo games of all time as voted by the BGG community.................is it really all that or are there some annoying kinks to iron out? Perhaps this requires a unique approach to playing a campaign game? #7thcontinent #brokenmeeple #seriouspoulp #lukehector #dicetower

Solar Storm Review

0 comments
In Solar Storm, you are crew members on board a ship that has had its energy core taken out by solar flares. Even worse, the ship is caught in the sun’s gravitational pull which is causing even more damage. It is only a matter of time before you and the rest of the crew perish. Solar Storm will give players a unique game every time they play due to the ship’s areas being laid out randomly at the start of each game. In Solar Storm, cooperative play is essential as players cannot win on their own. #solarstorm #brokenmeeple #drandagames #lukehector #dicetower

Top 10 Games That Escaped Me

0 comments
Editor Note - Adobe didn't change the numbering on the countdown numbers for my #1 for some reason, but I'm not going to back to re-render a whole giant video for it. So yes, it says #2 twice in a row, but you're all intelligent people, I'm sure you'll manage! :-) Right, hopefully you won't overreact on this list! :P We're back to positive Top 10's so you got no reason to be mad now! Also as a warning, yes my eye looks very red, I had an eye infection for a few days brought on by the excessive hayfever, this has now dissipated as I write this. There are too many games released each year to play them all, so some will slip the net or escape me for whatever reason. Here are 10 games that escaped me, that I really want to play - but why did they escape me and why do I want to play them so bad? 00:00 - Introduction 02:40 - #10 05:30 - #9 07:56 - #8 09:47 - #7 12:01 - #6 14:14 - #5 17:32 - #4 20:23 - #3 22:45 - #2 26:17 - #1 29:38 - Conclusion and Shortlist #escaped #brokenmeeple #topten #lukehector #dicetower

Top 10 Overrated Games (IMHO)

0 comments
I love board games, I love gaming, don't get me wrong here when you read the title. But we all have things we dislike in gaming whether it's a specific genre, a theme, a mechanic, a publisher trait, a designer style, a player trope, whatever. Most are afraid to express these views. Well not me!! :P And this is the big one that always gets contention. Even more so that hated games - which is kind of weird, but I guess they overlap and also some games you state you hate are usually hated by everyone anyway. My Top 10 Overrated Games based on current social media, BGG rankings, content on YouTube etc. Just try not to over-react - it's purely opinion........... 00:00 - Introduction & General Update 04:50 - #10 08:09 - #9 11:32 - #8 15:02 - #7 19:24 - #6 25:06 - #5 28:29 - #4 34:40 - #3 40:58 - #2 47:58 - #1 52:48 - Conclusion and Shortlist #overrated #brokenmeeple #topten #lukehector #dicetower https://youtu.be/6pJ43K_OfS8
