Who Am I?

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!

  2. Funny thing about Wingspan. I love the game and so far haven't felt the urge to try Wyrmspan, though it is tempting. But what I found funny is that you "complain" about people disliking birds and liking dragons, and yet you are doing the same in the opposite direction 😂. Firstly, lots of people are actually AFRAID of birds (hence Hitchcock's famous film), so it is easy to imagine why so many don't like that theme. Secondly, people can't be afraid of dragons because they don't exist. For the same reason, I can see why they fascinate people – dragons have fired people's fantasies for many centuries, and I myself am quite keen on them. As I said, I like the birds just fine, but have no problem whatsoever in having a game with fantasy creatures as the main theme.Sorry for the lengthy comment.Keep up the good work, enjoy your honest contributions very much

  3. Wayfarers rulebook was a mess. The first time I had to watch a video to understand the game

  4. 2 comments:
    1) Wingspan is my religion
    2) Dune Imperium > Lost ruins of arnak

  5. Whistle Mountain was interesting. I always think of the other Whistle train game, thinking it was an expansion for it. And the box art is ‘meh’.

  6. Wayfarers is my favorite from Garphill Games too. I love that you can create your worker placement spots and try different strategies. Really fun game. It’s my #3.

    The times you give for games are often much lower than my plays. I envy you having a quick playing group.

  7. I've noticed a common theme across all your videos.
    You don't seem very friendly to new/inexperienced players or high player count.
    I understand it's not always fun when everyone isn't at the same level, but i like to think this hobby is a friendly space.

  8. Fields of Arle works fine with 3 players, if you have plenty of time and a big table. Bu I agree, it's best at 1.

  9. Wingspan is a good to very good game, supported by great material, great artwork and a good theme.

    From the main mechanism it's an engine builder.
    The issue with Wingspan is that it's by far not in my Top5 engine builders, so it has no chance to get even close to my Top20.

    It's no blender, it's just not good enough mechanic-wise for me to join the hype-train and I don't miss not having it in my collection.
    Unfortunately, it creates a slight dislike BECAUSE so many people hype it and go mad with every new expansion, which just leaves me head-shaking.

  10. I appreciate Luke for his honesty in reviews. I think it's great to have reviewers who don't just think games are great, when so many games, are just okay. Many games that reviews rave about, seem to fall into obscurity quick;y. The only problem, however is, Luke's taste in games are absolutely garbage!

  11. Of the games you mentioned, I own wingspan, which is a top 10 game if not a top-five for me, lost ruins of Arnak, which I bought last month on sale and have never played but hope to before the end of the year, and seven wonders, which I like a lot but I don't love to the extent that you do. Perhaps the place that seven wonders holds for you, being your impetus to make gaming a hobby, is where ticket to ride sits for me. Before I played that, I was only playing word games and the occasional non-word party game. The first time I played, it was team Asia, because they needed a sixth person, and oddly enough, Asia is one of only two of the big maps that I don't own, the other being Germany.

  12. I don´t like any game from this list. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
    These are really not my jam.

  13. Glad to see shout outs for Wayfarers and The Gallerist! Solid list.

  14. The expansion for Arnak is not solo. It's up to 2 and if you have the first exp it plays up to 4

  15. I just traded for Whistle Mountain this morning, so now I'm really excited to try it!!

  16. Whistle Mountain, yes!!!!! I keep searching every few months or so for any word on an expansion. What a great game😃

  17. Yup. Birds > Dragons 🙂 I discovered Whistle Mountain thanks to you, and now it's in my top 10… 100% agree that the publishers messed up. I would have never tried it based on the name and cover.

  18. I just did a top 100 video where I put whistle mountain as my #39

  19. I played a 7-player game of Wingspan. It did take a bit of time, but it actually worked.

  20. Luke have you ever tried Key Flow? I think it's the second best pure drafting game after 7 Wonders 😉

  21. I don't like Wingspan because it just seems like a worse Race for the Galaxy, but at least I can get people to play it

  22. Love to see Wayfarers of the South Tigris so high up! My fiancée (now wife) gifted it to me in July of last year and it became my most played game of the year, with 15 solo plays. I absolutely love it and am still not tired of it. It's competing for my #1 all-time but will probably land somewhere in my top 3 when I re-rank later this year.

    I also got to play Lost Ruins of Arnak for the first time last year and really loved that one as well. It gave me Indiana Jones vibes and the solo mode was super easy to operate while still being challenging.

    Enjoying the list so far! Excited for the finale!

  23. If Wyrmspan is only Wingspan with pretty Dragons and slightly improved rules then I'm in …

  24. I used Pub Meeple as well and ranked the 230 games:

    20 Power Grid
    19 Black Angel
    18 Furnace
    17 Age of Steam
    16 Hansa Teutonica
    15 Scythe
    14 Yokohama
    13 18Chesapeake
    12 Churchill
    11 Pax Pamir: Second Edition

  25. I love Whistle Mountain too ….and likely tried it a few years ago thanks to your review. I enjoy many of these others a lot too. (Except for Lacerdas which are too heavy and long for my liking). Thanks for the vids!

  26. Good house rule for Wingspan. Makes so much more sense.

  27. I actually prefer Wingspan with the two player asia board and oceania player boards. It adds a good amount of interaction with the other player, and all your copy bird effects now only target each other.

  28. Would you say that Fields of arle IS quite tied with Odin?

  29. "Birds are cool!" Yes, they are indeed. Thank you, Luke. 🙂

  30. I can't wait for the Fields of Arle reprint! It was supposed to come out last November, but I still don't see it in stores. I had the chance to buy the base game, but I'd rather wait to get it new with expansion, and play it on yucata in the meantime.

  31. Crossovers with my 2023 Top 250 List: Whistle Mountain (#171), The Gallerist (#110), 7 Wonders (#20), and Wingspan (#5). Also, Wayfarers of the South Tigris is on the borderline for me, so we'll just have to wait and see if that game climbs on my list in the future. And, as always, Arnak > Dune. I can't wait for the big finale!

  32. Such a great list. "I don't care for dragons, but I care for birds*. I sign this statement. I love Wingspan especially for the birds theme. What a great game. This Wyrm"spam"-hype is ridiculous. It's a cash grab, another phantasy game I don't care about and I might leave the Windspan fan page I they don't shut up there. Interested in your take on that one. Arnak and Whistle Mountains are great. Fields of Arle with expansions is this available?? I need to check this out. With the new Garfield trilogy I am still not convinced about the dice introduction.. Anyway, great video, thanks Luke. The next 10 we should all know, I guess?

  33. For the 6-7 player mode for Wingspan, Jamey had said that they included it only because 7 player colors now existed with the inclusion of the Asia expansion. Stonemaier figured people would just play with 6-7 people on their own & wanted to include an official mode. Stonemaier kept the cost of this very low as to not impact everyone who wasn’t interested in ever playing it. I think it was a cool idea to include it, even though I will never personally use it.

  34. I really like your house rule for Wingspan.
    Thanks for another great list, Luke!

  35. Friday night, a glass of wine and a Broken Meeple Top Ten video… what could be better?

  36. Empires of the Void didn’t age very well and the gameplay is outdated – there are much better space 4x games these days. Conscious that Eclipse or Voidfall are much harder to get to the table and teach but even for a somewhat “lighter” option there are much better ones like Fractal: beyond the Void or even Last Light.

  37. The simplicity of explaining how to run gallery is the reason why i bought and lobe th Gallerist. Discover artist, buy cheap art from him, promote and dell for profit. Easy. Only 4 spaces, two action on each. Easy. And Eagle Gryphon production is great, thicc components fells good in hand. I have Gallerist and Lisboa, i would like to finish my Lacerda collection with Vinhos, but it costs too much for me at this point.

  38. Lacerda is a no fly zone for me mainly due to 1. the absolutely insane pricing of his games. Even used copies still ask for $100 +. 2. The complexity for sake of complexity. He has zero self editing abilities. He should be slapped upside the head multiple times by Reiner Knizia, who is the polar opposite and can make a legendary evergreen game with a one page rule book. Before he was asking 150-200 for a game I did play vinhos but was not impressed enough to try another one.

    Rosenberg hasn’t made one game I didn’t sell. I just don’t get it. Why is he popular? Are people really that fascinated with farming? At least Lacerda attempts to try different themes. Field of arle was so tedious. It only works as a solo game where you try to beat your own score. I can’t stand games like this.

    Wayfarers was another total miss for us after an okay impression from Paladins of the west kingdom. (also sold) That’s it for Shem Phillips games.

    Luke, this may sound weird, but you need to be more critical! Btw, you’re using a lot of these short media clips too much. I don’t even understand why you need them. If I see that 007 one again I’m going to thumb down. If you really think you need them, use new ones. Anybody who watches your videos on a semi regular basis is going to get sick of seeing these clips all the time. They’re sort of cute the first time, but get really tiresome afterwards. You don’t need padding.

  39. Your description of The Gallerist put that game on my wish list. I’ve been hesitant to introduce Lacerda games to my gaming group because of the complexity rating. This will be the one we go with. It doesn’t hurt that it looks amazing and the theme will work great with them. Thanks Luke for the work you put into these

  40. Birds are despicable creatures! Jerks of the sky! I do like Wingspan though (with Oceania).

  41. So wingspan in the best and, great western trails in the worst. Youtube is great anyone can became what he wants.
