This week’s Dicebreaker Podcast sees us fix almost great board games, deal with sore losers and push our luck

Plus what we’ve been playing, the latest news and more tabletop discussion!

This week’s episode of the Dicebreaker Podcast is sponsored by Voodoo Ranger and My Journey to Catan.

While Johnny’s away, the rest of the Dicebreaker crew will play! Well, when we find time for games between PAX/EGX and all this news, that is. We do manage to squeeze in our thoughts on Machi Koro, Gloomhaven Digital, Hues & Cues and Escape the Dark Sector, as well as everything else we’ve been playing lately.

In this week’s news, there’s discussion of the possible return of HeroQuest, The Crew’s latest award win, Pathfinder’s first Mwangi Expanse sourcebook and next Adventure Path, new RPG Into the Mother Lands, release dates for Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 and Root on mobile, and more.

After that, we answer your questions on the rubbish bits of otherwise great board games, dealing with sore losers and when a touch of unpredictability can be a good thing.

Catch the latest Dicebreaker Podcast in audio form on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. Or plug the pod’s RSS feed into your player or platform of choice.
