Broken Meeple Videos - Hanamikoji Review

0 comments
This is the first video which is using my new format of videos. There is no official rating out of 10, only my personal BGG rating for myself. No strengths and weaknesses 5 second cutscene, now I go over each strength and weakness in detail with lower third pop-ups on screen. I hope you find this an improvement and I welcome all feedback.
Welcome to the most well-known geisha street in the old capital, Hanamikoji. Geisha — the graceful women elegantly mastering in art, music, dance, and a variety of artistic performances after years of training — are greatly respected and adored. Geisha may be translated to "artist" and they dance, sing and entertain everyone.
In Hanamikoji, two players compete to earn the favors of the seven geisha masters by collecting the performance items with which they excel. With careful speculation and sometimes a few bold moves, you may earn the essential items by giving away the less critical ones. Can you outsmart your opponent and win the most favors of the geisha?

Season 2 Episode 19 - FLGS

0 comments
Ok, this needs addressing. Recently a Board Game Breakfast segment on the Dice Tower was released where Tom talked about local game stores and the movement to support/save them. He mentioned a lot of relevant points, however this has exploded on the internet where both sides are in each others faces debating this, with some taking the context way out of what was intended, by either making up words in their head or misunderstanding what was said.

So after viewing it myself, it's time to throw my two cents into the fray. . . . . .

Can Dice Tower Essentials continue their solid run with Viral, a mean area control game where you infect a poor hosts body and wreak havoc. No actual humans were harmed in the making of this game! But maybe they felt a little queasy!

Broken Geek Chat - Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle

0 comments
Sorry it's been a while since a podcast episode, the whole Amsterdam thing was hard hitting for me and the Top 100 took a lot of time out of doing podcasts. And then the last 10 days have been non-stop social events and relative visits. Yeah well back to normal. I promise a podcast episode is coming this weekend, as in a full one, so I hope you enjoy that.

But for now, let's continue with the former "P-Logs" which I'm now calling "Broken Geek Chat" podcasts. These are where I get to talk about something other than board games for a change, usually TV or Movie related as I love going to the movies or watching cool shows. Well tonight I just got back from watching the sequel to Kingsman, which I enjoyed highly. Did this one entertain me as much as the original? Have a listen and find out!
