Broken Meeple Videos - Newton Review

Around the middle of the 17th century with the advent of the scientific method, a period of great change begins, called the scientific revolution. Many great scientists, with their theories and ideas, change our perception of the universe: Galileo Galilei, Copernicus, Kepler, Bacon and, above all, Sir Isaac Newton.

In Newton, players take the role of a young scientist who wants to become one of the great geniuses of this period. To do this, they travel around Europe, visit universities and cities, study to discover new theories, build new tools, and work to earn money.

The previous games on the designers list aren't my favourites to date, but maybe Newton can surprise me?

Broken Meeple Videos - Compilation Review #1


What do you do when you have too many games to do a single review each for? Do one video for all of them at once! My first Compilation Mega Review!! I'm covering 8 games in this video and they are all hot Essen releases so come and see what I think of them.
I want to know what you guys think of this format - there may be one more compilation video before Season 3, but maybe the next one will be Season 3 I don't know. But do you like this idea? My introduction at the start will explain more, but please lend me your comments!

Broken Meeple Videos - Blackout Review


Hong Kong has been struck by a large scale unexpected blackout. As the government struggles to maintain control, you decide to take matters into your own hands and try to bring back some kind of societal order! Daily life as you were used to it has quickly dissolved. Even the most mundane tasks have become incredibly challenging without electric power. Whoever best manages this situation and restores the semblance of order will surely claim a position of power in post-blackout Hong Kong!
In Alexander Pfister's Blackout: Hong Kong, you have to manage ever-changing resources and a network of various specialists to keep Hong Kong from descending into chaos while also staying ahead of your rivals.

You want one of the biggest hyped games of Essen that no-one actually knew a thing about? Then I give you Blackout! I kid you not, everyone I asked about this game knew nothing about how it worked other than how it looked from watching it on a table. Man this designer has some serious power over the mind!

Another hype train for this year, but did this one actually arrive at its destination on time? Even if you can't pronounce it properly?

Season 2 Episode 33 - RANKINGS

Got two important topics to go over today. 

Firstly, based on a recent Facebook thread, some thoughts about how you should interpret reviews and opinions from different people. 

Secondly I talk about how little I put faith in the Board Game Geek ranking system and give my opinions on the games that appear in the Top 25. Do I like them, do I hate them? Why do I think they are rated so highly?
