What’s the best board game-inspired ice cream flavour? Chase Carter joins us on this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast to discuss!

Mint Choc Chit.

On this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast, news writer and games journalist Chase Carter joins Matt, Lolies, Meehan and Wheels for a packed discussion about the latest tabletop news - and, more importantly, ice cream.

The team talks about their time playing Magic: The Gathering, Rangers of Shadow Deep, Qwinto, Gloomhaven, Wingspan and more - albeit to various degrees of success.

We also check in with the new War of the Ring card game, the latest from John ‘Blades in the Dark’ Harper, lament Good Puppers’ misfortune at sea and consider the latest attempt to take analogue gaming digital.

Plus, we offer up our suggestions for tabletop-inspired snacks, less savage asynchronous games than Diplomacy and the best games for six-year-old fans of Root(!)
