Emma Partlow joins us to talk Magic: The Gathering, D&D and the best Trivial Pursuit replacements on this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast

Plus Uri Geller’s 20-year Pokémon beef, overlooked board game themes and how to kill Hitler.

On this week’s episode of the Dicebreaker Podcast, we’re joined by the wonderful Emma Partlow to chat about the latest happenings in Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer 40,000’s Death Guard.

Meanwhile, Matt’s been gazing at Mausritter, Meehan’s been playing a lot of Root and Wheels has been... killing Hitler?

We also run through the latest headlines across the worlds of board games and tabletop RPGs, including a new Quest card game, the return of Block Mania and the beef between Uri Geller and Kadabra. Yes, the Pokémon.

Plus, we answer your questions on overlooked periods of history in games, whether board games should go back to basics and the best trivia game picks to replace that dusty copy of Trivial Pursuit.

You can find Emma on Twitter @emmmzyne and read her brilliant Modern on a Budget series over at TCGPlayer.
