Episode 77 - Inflated Point Scoring
The Broken Meeple Podcast - Episode 77 - Inflated Point Scoring Why do inflated point scores in point salad games bother me? It's not a massive pain, but something about having point scores that are so high that gaining victory points becomes meaningless irks me. So I'm going to explain in more detail why that's the case! I also give some preliminary thoughts about the painful journey I've had in learning, unboxing and playing solo games of Voidfall in preparation for a solo only review. And I'll explain in response to some viewers questions why certain hot upcoming releases have not featured on my channel (mostly because the publishers in question would never send me them!) *************************************** SUBSCRIBE ► www.youtube.com/channel/UCmjyHBcq…ub_confirmation=1 KIENDA SPONSOR REFERRAL LINK 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 - Channel Updates (20,000 Achieved!) 13:44 - Explorers of the North Sea 18:44 - News (Spiel Des Jahres) 27:38 - News (TTR Legacy?) 29:50 - News (Quackalope & Paid Content Debates) 48:05 - The UK Games Expo 2023 Preview #brokenmeeple #ukge #ukgamesexpo #podcast #boardgames #boardgame #goldengeekawards #supportsmallcreators #tabletop #tabletopgames #bgg #boardgamer #boardgamereview *************************************** Useful Links Become a Patreon ► www.patreon.com/TheBrokenMeeple Facebook ► www.facebook.com/thebrokenmeeple Twitter ► twitter.com/TheBrokenMeeple Instagram ► www.instagram.com/thebrokenmeeple Podcast ► @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.
