The Broken Meeple Podcast - Episode 81 - Essen Hotness of Handycon What Essen games were played at Handycon and what are my early thoughts? Why is Terraforming Mars better with only Prelude and no other expansions ever? Why is Sankoro not as good as it may look from first impressions? *************************************** SUBSCRIBE ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmjyHBcqxxQjrg0KUN944dQ?sub_confirmation=1 KIENDA SPONSOR REFERRAL LINK - 5% off your order over £60 The Broken Meeple is happy to be sponsored by Kienda.co.uk where you can buy great games at great prices from a warehouse local to where I live!

One single batchelor from the UK talking about his passion for board games and the people who play them! I support small content creators, board game cafes and go against the status quo when it comes to the board game industry. I give my honest opinions without bias towards any publishers or designers and will not hold back if I don't like a game. The Broken Meeple is a variety channel that hosts all kinds of board game content from reviews to Top 10 lists to playthroughs to live stream collaborations with special guests (predominantly small channels who deserve more exposure). I look forward to engaging with you, the community on my live streams or in the comments on my videos! *************************************** Timestamps: 00:00 - Introduction and Updates 10:43 - Handycon 10 11:13 - Nucleum 18:10 - Ark Nova: Marine Worlds 23:17 - Sankoro 30:03 - Evacuation 40:40 - Hegemony with Historical Events 44:43 - Terraforming Mars: Turmoil 51:16 - Kutna Hora 01:00:00 - Ceres 01:06:38 - Please Share and Support The Show #brokenmeeple #essen #handycon #top100 #top10 #boardgames #boardgame #supportsmallcreators #tabletop #tabletopgames #boardgamer #boardgamereview *************************************** Useful Links Become a Patreon ► https://www.patreon.com/TheBrokenMeeple Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/thebrokenmeeple Twitter ► http://twitter.com/TheBrokenMeeple Instagram ► https://www.instagram.com/thebrokenmeeple Podcast ► https://soundcloud.com/luke-hector-broken-meeple Full credit to BoardGameGeek and its members for any images used that aren't my own or part of the publisher press kit.
