The Dicebreaker Podcast kicks back with soft drinks, pizza forts and the best board games of the year (apparently)

Shake it up, pull the tab and let the opinions spill.

On this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast, Matt, Johnny and Meehan crack open a fizzing can of refreshing tabletop discussion with our thoughts on Fort’s pizza economy, Pandemic Legacy: Season 0’s [REDACTED] and [EMBARGOED], and this summer’s best (only?) party game involving Irn Bru, lofts and a cousin’s wedding.

We also talk through 2020’s Spiel des Jahres winners, the end of the Transformer Trading Card Game, MTG’s new Jumpstart format and the next game from the makers of Wavelength and Monikers - a fuzzy reimagining of Jenga.

Plus, your questions on bending the rules, our pop culture treasures and which video games deserve a tabletop adaptation answered!
