What are the best board games and RPGs of 2020? The team decides in a special GOTY Dicebreaker Podcast!

2020: good for games, bad for just about everything else.

In a special episode of the Dicebreaker Podcast to finish up 2020, the whole team - Matt, Johnny, Lolies, Wheels and Meehan - gather together to run through the board games and RPGs we’ve enjoyed most this year.

We give some thoughts on our individual picks for the best games of 2020, as well as the other new releases that stood out from the last 12 months. Have the team ever agreed on something quite so much?!

You can listen to the latest Dicebreaker Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. Head over to the RSS feed if you prefer another player.

You can also join the team in person over on the Dicebreaker YouTube channel, where you can find all episodes of the podcast in video form.
