The Dicebreaker Podcast heats up with beach-ready board games, chaotic camel racing and tabletop football

Burning questions, cool conversation.

In an especially summery (in other words, we’re all boiling in the heat), Matt, Lolies, Johnny and Meehan take refuge from the searing heat outside with some cool conversation about board games and RPGs.

This week we chat about the second season of Warhammer (American) football game Blood Bowl, the end of (British) football game Guild Ball, sci-fi miniatures universe Infinity, our tipsy betting in Camel Up, the return of Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn and much more.

Plus, we answer some of your questions with our picks for beach-ready and pool-proof board games, the top solo games to play by yourself, and how to handle taking a break from GMing an RPG.

Download the audio edition of the Dicebreaker Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. You can also pop the RSS feed into your media player of choice.

Catch the video version on our YouTube channel, including the latest podcast and all previous episodes.
