On this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast, Matt’s been hanging with mice in Mausritter, Wheels has been battling cards in Dinn and Meehan has been terraforming Mars in, er, Terraforming Mars.

That’s before we jet off to the new sci-fi edition of Quest, consider the demise of Legend of the Five Rings and, you guessed it, comment on the latest D&D movie casting news.

There’s also our advice on moving from board games to RPGs, resolving conflict at the table and roleplaying in familiar pop-culture worlds. Plus: which board game world we’d choose to live in.

You can catch the latest Dicebreaker Podcast in audio form on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts. Or treat yourself and stick the RSS feed into your player of choice.

Join the team (or some of them, anyway) in person over on the Dicebreaker YouTube channel, where you can also enjoy Matt’s facial expressions as Wheels repeatedly mentions the intimate areas of Danny DeVito.

If you’d like to contact the team with a question, message or anything else (please, no DeVito Photoshops), you can email us at podcast@dicebreaker.com, tweet us @joindicebreaker or simply leave a comment below.
