Top 5 Animal Games for National Pet Day – The Broken Meeple Show – Episode 23

The Broken Meeple
For channel updates, there’s some fun content to come including a great live stream next week.

Gems & Biscuits gets my channel shoutout for the week – a local UK creator just starting out who will feature in an upcoming live collaboration Top 10 list in May. Show him some love for small creators.

In the news I talk about new Twilight Imperium maps, Carcassonne 20th Anniversary, Agent Venom for Marvel Champions and my hopes for the upcoming UK Games Expo in 2021.

And then because it’s National Pet Day, I’m doing a short Top 5 list on behalf of animal kind. Animals are great and deserve the love so I’m talking about 5 games where animals are the forefront of the theme or art or mechanics.

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!
