This week’s Dicebreaker Podcast talks 2021’s most exciting board game releases, Risk on TV and pro Uno

Ain't it fun.

On this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast, Matt, Lolies and Meehan talk a bevy of board game news, from the next games from the makers of Root, Star Wars: Rebellion and Terraforming Mars to the Risk TV show and the first Uno world championship.

We also chat about what we’ve been playing - or more accurately, everything Lolies has been playing - reflect on the positives of 2020, recommend our favourite books that don’t have rules in, and pick out some educational games for playing with kids in lockdown. Join us for an hour-and-a-half of chatter!

Listen to the Dicebreaker Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. You can also find the RSS feed here.

Join Lolies, Meehan and Matt in visual form on the Dicebreaker YouTube channel, where you’ll see us express our thoughts about our edible crockery in person. You can catch up with any episodes you’ve missed, too.
