Tears are shed for the cancelled Metal Gear Solid board game and Danny DeVito returns in the new episode of the Dicebreaker podcast

We also complain about more tabletop television adaptations.

It’s that time of the week yet again, where the Dicebreaker podcast slinks back to bring you the latest tabletop gaming news and more ridiculous nonsense.

Episode 46 sees Meehan returning as host - oh no - with Johnny and Lolies joining her to chat about the hottest gossip around. Listen to us mourn the cancellation of Metal Gear Solid: The board Game - and wish its designer the best of luck with revitalising it - bemoan the announcement of yet more tabletop adaptations with an upcoming Cluedo animated series on the way and discuss our thoughts on another Witcher board game. You can also hear our thoughts on the newly revealed Second Edition of Great Western Trail and Lolies go on a nice rant about Board Game Arena being bought out.

We also answer some of your questions, including multiple concerning Danny DeVito and snacks, as well actual queries regarding tabletop gaming and the like.

Listen to this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. You can also import the RSS feed into your player of choice.

If you want to see our shining faces alongside all this ridiculousness, then why not watch the latest podcast episode via our YouTube channel - where you can also find lots of other great videos on all sorts of things.
