VLOG - Solo Gaming (Introduction)

As we're all stuck in isolation, everyone is talking about solo games and lists are being prepared and all sorts. However I've seen some dubious stuff out there, where you can tell that the hosts don't enjoy or appreciate or know a lot about solo games. I've even seen ones where they outright condescend solo gaming as a concept. . . . seriously?!!? Now a Top 10 list isn't enough, there are too many solo games to talk about. So first I'm going to talk about solo gaming in general, then in two further videos I will be giving an overview of a TON of games suitable for solo play! Hope you enjoy these impromptu VLOGS! #solo #brokenmeeple #games #lukehector #dicetower

Guards of Atlantis - First Impressions Preview

Guards of Atlantis: Tabletop MOBA is a competitive "zero-luck" team-based board game inspired by computer games of the MOBA genre.
In the game, each player controls a single hero and uses a hand of cards to move that hero around the game board, employ special abilities, and attack enemies. Defeating enemy minions earns you coins, which are used to buy levels and upgrade your hero. Your goal is to help your "minions" — units that are not directly controlled by the players — reach the enemy base and capture it. Guards of Atlantis II is a complete overhaul of the original game with 21 new heroes, new game board and much more. In addition to new content, Guards of Atlantis II streamlines the rules of the original, making it faster and tighter. Not a full review, but instead of a first impressions preview of the game before it launches on Kickstarter on April 28th. https://bit.ly/3eMnMeD 00:00 - Intro and Overview of Game 07:30 - Duration 10:07 - Ease of Play 12:30 - Tactics & Strategy 16:48 - Aesthetics 18:30 - Immersion 20:50 - Longevity and Closing Thoughts #guardsofatlantis #brokenmeeple #wolffdesigna #lukehector #dicetower

Board Game Bling - Bringing Back An Old Series

Resurrecting an old series! Not a common feature though. But ERaptor were kind enough on request to donate me 6 inserts for some major game titles. I have assembled them all, put them in my own games and now I'm going to show what they comprise of and how much value they add in terms of setup and takedown vs the money you pay. Both pros and cons will be discussed! #Eraptor #brokenmeeple #bling #lukehector #dicetower

The Broken Meeple Podcast - S04 E05 - Isolation Woes

Doesn't isolation just suck?!

Ah well once I've moaned about how I'm coping as an extrovert with isolation, I can talk about gaming matters!

Firstly my thoughts on Dominant Species which I played literally last night for the first time on Tabletopia........was it worth the 5 hours of investment?

Second, a quick snippet on my fears for how the gaming industry is going to return to normal with regards to releases.

Thirdly a kind contributor has given me a few cool questions to answer for Q & A including how I came up with the Broken Meeple name and why is theme so important to me in a game?

Kanban Driver's Edition Review

"Kanban" — or 看板, the Japanese word for billboard — is a term for the visual cues that might be used in a lean, efficient assembly line in order to expedite and smooth workflow. These signals get the workers what they need, where they need it, when they need it to create a just-in-time (JIT) production system. If you want a seat on the board someday, you need to show that you can keep a complex machine running smoothly, efficiently, with everything happening just at the right time. Kanban: Automotive Revolution is a pure Eurogame focused on economics and resource management that puts you in the driver's seat of an entire production facility, racing for the highest level of promotion. With the new Eagle Gryphon version on the way - is this one still worth considering if you want a cheaper alternative? Will you enjoy the mechanics enough to warrant considering either? By community request, this is my review of Kanban from Vital Lacerda. 05:30 - Duration 07:22 - Ease of Play 11:22 - Tactics & Strategy 15:28 - Aesthetics 18:05 - Immersion 22:05 - Longevity 24:50 - My Final Word #kanban #brokenmeeple #stronghold #lukehector #dicetower
