What are the best parts of bad board games? We discuss in the 50th Dicebreaker Podcast!

Along with our biggest Kickstarter disappointments.

On this week’s podcast, Matt’s been sailing Forgotten Waters, Meehan’s been seeing what we do in the shadows in indie RPG Low Stakes and Wheels has been getting into Fights in Tight Spaces.

That’s before we check out the next game on the way from Richard ‘MTG’ Garfield, team up with the X-Men in the new Marvel United spin-off, face the Keyraken in the upcoming Keyforge co-op mode and and consider whether Arnie’s CGI buttocks will make an appearance in the Terminator RPG.

Plus, your questions answered on the good parts of bad games, our biggest Kickstarter disappointments and board games that just won’t fit back into their box.
