On The Underground Review

The London Underground is the world's first underground passenger railway, having opened in 1863. Its 11 lines move about 5 million passengers a day to 270 stations, along 400 km (250 mi) of track. The massive network of London Underground stations makes up one of the most complex transportation systems in the world, and On the Underground challenges you to develop it. Build the most successful lines, connect them to landmarks, and attract passenger traffic! First published in 2006, this has been long awaiting a reprint. And now we have a beautifully produced, streamlined version. But was it worth the wait? #ontheunderground #ludicreations #review #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Paladins of the West Kingdom Review

Paladins of the West Kingdom is set at a turbulent time of West Francia's story, circa 900 AD. Despite recent efforts to develop the city, outlying townships are still under threat from outsiders. Saracens scout the borders, while Vikings plunder wealth and livestock. Even the Byzantines from the east have shown their darker side. As noble men and women, players must gather workers from the city to defend against enemies, build fortifications and spread faith throughout the land. Fortunately you are not alone. In his great wisdom, the King has sent his finest knights to help aid in our efforts. So ready the horses and sharpen the swords. The Paladins are approaching. Architects is one of the best games of 2018, but can Paladins come close to the same level? Or will the solitaire nature of the game hurt it? #paladins #garphillgames #renegade #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Obscurio Review

Obscurio is a family game, an original mix between an image-based communication game and a secret role game in which the players have to be careful when sharing ideas with their team. Supported by rich contents, Obscurio proposes a fresh new experience in its genre by putting the emphasis on the details of the images and the constant doubt created by the presence of the traitor.
Communicate efficiently and avoid the illusions on your way to escape the Sorcerer's library! WHY DOES EVERYONE WANT TO REPLACE MYSTERIUM?!?! #Obscurio #libellud #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Cooper Island Review

In the age of exploration the players arrive at a new home far away from their homeland. They try to colonize the big island and each player tries to explore one part of it by placing landscape tiles. Landscape tiles grant resources and those are used to erect buildings with special abilities. Barriers on the island have to be removed in order to explore the island even further. Players build valuable statues and supply ships get them the supplies from the old world they need to be a successful settler on Cooper Island. The special thing about Cooper Island is the way the players mark their victory points. They take small ship markers around the island to show their progress. On their way around the island they find smaller islands inshore that grant valuable benefits. After five rounds, a game of Cooper Island ends and the player who developed the best and went on furthest with their ships will win. #CooperIsland #capstonegames #frostedgames #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Catan: Starfarers Review

Twenty years ago, the settlers started into the depths of the galaxy to discover unknown planets, the undiscovered universe lying before them. Maybe they'll find planets with good ore or carbon deposits — or perhaps only barren ice planets. They might encounter alien folks and start lucrative trading, with pirates and wormholes being a constant challenge for them. Catan: Starfarers is a new version of Starfarers of Catan, originally released in 1999, that contains completely revised graphics and game materials, revised rules, and (most importantly) a variable game board that brings even more variety to the exploration of space. But is 2-3 hours a lot to ask from a more meaty version of Catan?? #Catan #asmodeeuk #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Reavers of Midgard Review

Reavers of Midgard is a single worker placement game with elements of set collection, dice combat and engine building set in the Champions of Midgard universe. In Champions of Midgard, your quest was to become Jarl. You battled back the trolls, draugr and some of the epic monsters that once threatened the sanctity of your humble port town. Now it's time to go on the offensive. The second game in the Midgard lineup. A point salad with a ton of colour and a huge box! Not 3 things that usually go together. Will this combination result in a solid Euro even if the theme is a little.........lost? #reaversofmidgard #greyfoxgames #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Terramara Review

Terramara is the name of the villages founded around 1500 B.C., mid- to late Bronze Age, in Northern Italy. People lived, travelled, and traded between the Alps mountain range and the river Po. The main occupations of the Terramara people were hunting, farming and metallurgy, casting bronze tools like axe heads in stone molds. The houses in the villages were built on piles, meaning each house is built above the ground, supported by wooden stakes.

In Terramara, you play as the chief of a clan living in one of these villages. Your goal is to develop your clan, exploring lands farther away to trade with other villages, and reach sacred places. You improve your battle strength and discover new technologies to create useful artefacts. The player who develops the best clan by gaining more development points becomes leader of all of Terramara and wins the game!

I love a good twist on worker placement and anything that Michael Menzel touches in terms of board art is beauty to my eyes. The first ever QUINED GAMES title to hit my blog, can they debut on this channel with a bang?

Tapestry Review

Tapestry is a two-hour game for 1-5 players designed by Jamey Stegmaier. Create the civilization with the most storied history, starting at the beginning of humankind and reaching into the future. The paths you choose will vary greatly from real-world events or people — your civilization is unique! In Tapestry, you start from nothing and advance on any of the four advancement tracks (science, technology, exploration, and military) to earn progressively better benefits. You can focus on a specific track or take a more balanced approach. You will also improve your income, build your capital city, leverage your asymmetric abilities, earn victory points, and gain tapestry cards that will tell the story of your civilization. The most hyped game of 2019. And I'm standing in the middle of the railroad track vs this speeding bullet train to tell you if lives up to the high standards its set itself. #tapestry #stonemaier #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Top 10 of 2018 (Retrospective)

Continuing the Retrospective series before I head into the Top 10 of 2019 video later this month. There are too many games to play each year and I can't play them all before the end of a calendar year. So 1 year later I like to look back and see what games have faded out and which other titles have managed to earn their place in the list. Here is my Top 10 of 2018 (A Retrospective Look). #2018 #retrospective #topten #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

The Magnificent Review

The Magnificent is a tightly designed Eurogame from the creators of Santa Maria set in a mystical world beautifully illustrated by French artist Martin Mottet. In the game, players are competing to attract the largest audiences to their shows, featuring magnificent performers. In the process, you must expand your camp by placing Tetris-style tiles on your player board, gather elements needed for the shows, and set up performances in your tents. Is the game as magnificent as the title hints? #themagnificent #aportagames #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Geometric Art Review

Geometric Art is a party game which is a drawing game in which everyone take turns to drawing and guessing, The simple goal is to let the guesser understand the name of your artwork. Remember, you may only be able to finish your "Art work" with a few geometric symbols. In Geometric Art , every round will exchange a guesser who guess questions. Each round there will be a theme. Within this theme, the artist can complete the artwork with the symbols specified above the dice. The guesser can guess the name of the artwork of every artist, If it's right, both get more rewards, but if guess wrong, both will be punished. Those who first get 10 points to win, but If you have too many penalty points, you will be eliminated. Compared to traditional painting games, there is no need for painting talent, but need more wonderful inspiration. #geometricart #empersors4 #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Maracaibo Review

Maracaibo, the new strategy game for 1-4 players by Alexander Pfister, is set in the Caribbean during the 17th century. The players try to increase their influence in three nations in four rounds with a play time of 40 minutes per player. The players sail on a round course through the Caribbean. E.g., you have city tiles where you are able to perform various actions or deliver goods to. One special feature is an implemented quest mode over more and various tiles, which tells the player, who chase after it, a little story. As a player, you move with your ship around the course, managing it by using cards like in other games from Alexander Pfister. This was a beast of a review. It's a lengthy one because there is so much to discuss. But it was a highly enjoyable one to record and edit. Now my history with the heavier side of Pfister's games has not been.......perfect to say the least............but do we now have a heavy Pfister game that I enjoy? #maracaibo #capstonegames #alexanderpfister #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Expedition to Newdale Review

Expedition to Newdale is the new Oh my Goods! game from renowned designer Alexander Pfister. In this board game adaption of the successful card game, 1 to 4 players from 12 and up compete in different chapters to experience the world of the Longsdale kingdom once again. The story of Expedition to Newdale starts about five years after the events from Oh my Goods! Escape to Canyon Brook, but you don’t need to know the prequels at all. Each chapter of the game lasts about 90 minutes which adds up to around 12 hours of exciting campaign gameplay. And when you found your favorite chapter while playing the campaign, you can always come back and play it again to have even more fun! When you already have OH MY GOODS as a card game, is there much call for a board game version? Is the story progression interesting enough to warrant a campaign playthrough? #expeditiontonewdale #alexanderpfister #lookoutgames #lukehector #brokenmeeple #dicetower

Wayfinders Review

Engines purring, goggles down — the seaplane is set for take-off! Welcome to the whimsical world of Wayfinders in which intrepid explorers race to chart new paths through the skies.

You will need to think on your feet and outfit your planes with the right gear to arrive safely — but building hangars on islands and stocking them with parts can help you zip around with ease! Be sure to be keen in your planning and you will unlock the charms of the islands. Wheels up — adventure awaits!

The game may be fun, but will the colours and graphic design allow us to enjoy the experience?

Walking In Provence Review

Walking in Provence is the second game in the "Walking in" series, bringing totally new ideas and mechanisms but the same experience to the first design Walking in Burano.

Located in southeastern France, Provence is home to one of the most picturesque views in the world. Every summer, the vast fields of lavender flowers bloom and their vibrant violet petals sweep across the fertile green fields covering them in a sea of purple. Neighboring golden ears of wheat, the brilliant yellow sunflowers, and the fearless blue sky all come together to create the perfect picture moment. Ready your camera and capture this breathtaking scene.

Place the Scene Cards then move the Photographer and Drone in order to take different photos in the game. The photos and the various scenes will score points. The player with the most points at the end of game wins.

Does it bear any similarities to Walking In Burano? Perhaps it's more similar to another game elsewhere? Either way, does it hold up and continue the ongoing trend of quality small games from Emperor S4?

Top 10 Hidden Gems

Time for another Top 10! You'll get to see this during the Dice Tower Marathon at the end of November as well, but for those subscribed to the channel you can check it out here! However take note that my next Top 10 (Games of 2018 Retrospective) will premiere during the Dice Tower Marathon and then be uploaded to YouTube on this channel about a week later.

For this list, I look at my collection and think of those games where I had no idea going in what to expect or would not have even looked at them twice normally, but yet became staples in my collection. Those "hidden gems" that you're glad you found that maybe others have yet to see.

Detective Club Review

Detective Club is a board game for players who enjoy party, with simple rules that take just a minute to explain. Intrigue, sudden revelations, limitless creativity, and tons of fun await you in this game! Lead the investigation as a detective, or cover your tracks as the infiltrated conspirator. Discuss, accuse, object and try to convince everyone.

In Detective Club, on each round, one of the players secretly teams up with another — the Conspirator — and tries to make them guess a secret word using just two illustrated cards! Other players are detectives, who also know the word, but don't know the identities of each other. Detectives have to find out who the conspirator is, making sure they don't get accused by their fellow players!

Spyfall meets Dixit...........sounds awesome! Does it execute it well? And did I just put Spyfall on the Bring and Buy?..............

Trails of Tucana Review

Trails of Tucana is a flip-and-write game from the creators of Avenue and Doodle City that is quick and easy to play, but has enough depth to entertain gamers. Each player is given a map of the island Tucana, showing its villages and important sights. The positions of the villages are randomized for each player, so every game will provide a unique puzzle. Each turn, one player flips over two terrain cards. Each player must draw — on their own map — a trail between two neighboring spaces of the shown terrains. Gradually, the trails will grow into a network of roads. Players score points by connecting matching harbors, and by connecting sights to harbors. Being the first to connect a pair of harbors provides bonus points. To add depth to the game, there are varying distribution of the different terrain cards. Mountain cards are for instance rarer than desert cards, so it would be harder to build a trail through a mountain range or over water than through desert or forest. Players need to take this into account when planning their routes. And they should maximize the probability that they will be able to make use of any combination of terrain cards that may come up. It all sounds fine, but this is a bloated genre, does this stand out on its own or is it "JUST ANOTHER FLIP AND WRITE GAME"? #trailsoftucana #aportagames #brokenmeeple #dicetower #lukehector

Arkham Horror LCG: Dream Eaters Review

There is a hidden realm outside the world of the waking: a realm of wonder, imagination, and nightmares. After occult author Virgil Gray writes about his adventures in these “Dreamlands,” you decide to set forth and learn the truth for yourself. What is real, and what is fiction? And what secrets await in the dark, forbidden places beyond the gates of sleep? The Dream-Eaters is the fifth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. In this expansion, 1–2 players take on the roles of either a group of investigators venturing into the Dreamlands or their companions who have been left in the waking world. This expansion contains the first two scenarios of The Dream-Eaters cycle; one scenario for each of these two groups. This expansion also contains new investigator and player cards that increase the customization options for the game. #arkhamhorror #fantasyflightgames #dreameater #brokenmeeple #dicetower #lukehector

Jiguan Review

As a master mechanist in Jigūan: The Eastern Mechanist, it is your job to acquire parts, obtain energy, improve your skills and complete your creation. Your goal is to advance your place in the Five Pagodas, by creating unique mechanical beasts. Your creations not only bring you honor but also contribute to the advancement of Eastern civilization.

From a line of relatively light games comes one of the more think-y titles I've reviewed from EmperorS4. Does more meat equal a better dish?

Trial of the Temples Review

Every century the most powerful Archmages gather at the centre of the world — “Mages' Arena”. They must enter the trials at the three temples to compete for the title of “Supreme Master”. Each Archmage will refine crystals and create magical barriers to block their opponents in order to complete the trials and find the best timing to surpass their opponents. Archmages will aim to cast a spell from the spellbook to create an amazing spell chain! Who will win and recive the ultimate title?

EmperorS4 regularly put out fun and quirky games and so far for me, haven't put out a single dud, even if only a couple have nailed my Top 100 list. Does this continue the trend despite focusing on..........tracks?

Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans Review

Yes, focus issue will persist for this and the next 2 videos! Sorry, technicals!

In Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans, journeymen have returned to the city as master craftsmen, equipped with knowledge of new crafts and tools. The Guildhall has never been so busy! While some apprentices spend time learning new skills, others adorn the city’s buildings with everything from golden tapestries, to stained glass windows. But don’t let the shimmer of lights and fancy wares deceive you. For not all that glitters is gold.

In addition to including components for an extra player, Age of Artisans adds the new Craft Cards, a dual-layered Guildhall Board, two new Player Boards and a variety of new Apprentices and Buildings.

Pret A Porter (Third Edition) Review

During a batch of filming I messed up the camera lens setting and the game is out of focus. came rectify it and don't have time to reshoot. Apologies and after Essen it will go back to normal on review videos.

Prêt-à-Porter is a 2-4 player board game, unique mix of deep economy strategy and direct interaction. Low luck element, many important decisions to be made and many strategies that can be used to acclaim victory. With wide range of different employees, different buildings and contracts you can create your unique company every single time.

You know my history with economic games - if it ain't light, I ain't gonna like! Here we have a 3 hour economic game brought back from 2010 in a new and updated form. Can this break the losing streak of this genre for me with its unique theme, pleasing aesthetics and promise of wide variety?

Across each expansion’s 81 new scenario cards and 23 new player cards, you’ll explore new locations, face more ghastly treacheries, and enhance your investigator’s abilities as you face even more unspeakable terrors.

You command a squadron of these captured Dragul. Gather goons and craft contraband to raise your reputation. Keep your suspicion with the guards low while establishing yourself as the most powerful crew in Kulbak. In six short days, Taron may offer you the chance to fight for your freedom.

From majestic Maples to ancestral Oaks, players nurture their trees aiming to thrive over the course of a year in a beautiful National Park.

In the spring, players carefully grow their trees, scoring as hikers enjoy traveling the trails in summer.

When autumn comes, leaves fall in the ever-changing direction of the wind, guided to cover the terrain and other players’ leaves. Points are awarded in winter for the most coverage of each region in the park.

Gain your ground in the park to be victorious in Bosk!

Vindication Review

Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins — completely alone with nothing except the breath in your lungs and an undaunted spirit.

Through your advanced resource management, area control tactics, and freeform action selection, you’ll add companions to your party, acquire bizarre relics, attain potent character traits, and defeat a host of unusual monsters in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining honor.

It's got its fans in the board game industry as one of the most unique Euro's out there. Will I be one of them also or will I live long enough to be disappointed?

This is a long review due to the amount of content to cover. Some of this is the core game and the rest is stretch goal expansion content.  The talk about the expansion content is at 17:55 so if you want to skip ahead to the verdict, you'll find it at 32:33 onwards.

Deep Blue is a press-your-luck and engine-building, family game in which players dive for wealth and may join and benefit from other player's diving fortunes. In this game, players have to collect the right crew of divers, sailors, and archeologists, race to wreck sites to claim the best spots to dive from, and scout the seas to discover new wrecks. Players have to take risks if they want to be the most wealthy diver! Days of Wonder is one of the titans of making family games - can this new unknown venture tick all the boxes and deliver a satifying, but short experience? #deepblue #daysofwonder #dicetower #brokenmeeple #lukehector

You want to populate this world with people who come from different cultures and continents as well as different ages. To bring glory and honor to your world, you should choose the persons and accomplishments skillfully. But you should not ignore agriculture, culture, and military power, otherwise one of your competitors might get bigger and more successful than you. Who will succeed first in creating a new flourishing high culture? I keep hearing the words "7 Wonders Killer" mentioned on the grapevine - that's a bold claim to make - can Hadara manage to rival such a titan in drafting games or is this going to be a flash in the pan?
