Behold – the surprise blitz review of Vienna Connection!! Vienna Connection is a standalone game inspired by the game mechanisms of Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game. In this game, players take on the roles of CIA agents sent to Europe in 1977 during the Cold War to investigate the mysterious death of James Werner, an American citizen murdered in Vienna.

The international plot involves various secret agencies, and players will travel around Europe visiting a dozen destinations and discovering secrets.

Vienna Connection, although inspired by Detective, is a standalone game with new rules and game mechanisms that bring the spy theme to life. Players will manage resources (such as informants, bribes, and pieces of information), decode reports (including secret messages, codes, and wiretapped conversations), and will have to outsmart enemy spy agencies.

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!

  1. How family friendly is the game.. PG, PG13?

  2. Thanks for the review Luke! Would you recommend to play this first before the original Detective?

  3. I saw this over your shoulder in the culling video and looked forward to a review!

  4. I quite enjoyed Detective, so I will have to check this one out. Thanks for the review, Luke!

  5. Thanks for the great review. My copy just arrived today so looking forward to playing this weekend.

  6. Glad to see you enjoyed it! We love, love Detective. Just filmed a review for this today…let’s just say that we don’t end up with the same verdict 😉

  7. Very detailed "Blitz" review, just about perfect length. I'm not a fan of deduction games in general – Emma's brother lent us Consulting detective a couple of years ago and we have not played that, I think all the reading put me off. I don't mind hefty rule books describing game mechanics but reading lengthy story driven games as never appealed. Great job on the review though.
