The Dicebreaker Podcast returns to talk Detective, Alien RPG, Blood Rage 2 and the hottest board game of 1970

Hot releases, hot takes and hot gammon - we’ve got it all.

This week’s episode of the Dicebreaker Podcast is sponsored by Voodoo Ranger.

Matt, Johnny, Meehan and Wheels access the mainframe of the Dicebreaker supercomputer to crack open this week’s case of board game and RPG news on the latest podcast.

We check in with the latest from Keyforge, Roll for the Galaxy and Kickstarter, before wondering about the surprise tease of Blood Rage 2 and whether we’d sit Warhammer 40,000 action figures on our shelves.

Plus, there’s the gang’s thoughts on what we’ve been playing lately, from the Alien RPG and Detective to the hottest board game of 1970, Mastermind.

We also answer your questions on the best background listening for painting miniatures, how to stop combat in D&D dragging on and what board games could (and should) learn from tabletop RPGs.

Listen to the Dicebreaker Podcast in audio form on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. Prefer another player? Find the RSS feed here.

If you prefer your conversation with our slightly exhausted faces attached, you can watch the latest episode on our YouTube channel. You’ll find all previous episodes of the pod in the same place, along with plenty more board game and RPG playthroughs.
