This week’s episode of the Dicebreaker podcast is graced by the presence of Jeremy Gage, a game designer and host of the Draw Your Dice podcast - a show about getting into the nitty-gritty elements of game creation. During his visit to the chaotic world of the DB podcast, Jeremy gets to experience all the usual show shenanigans courtesy of Wheels and Meehan, including multiple discussions about testicles and an insight into the eternal hell of covering endless entries in the Monopoly franchise.
Jeremy takes the opportunity to talk about the roleplaying games he’s been experiencing recently in the ‘Today we played’ section of the show, including the eighties inspired RPG Lighthearted. He also gives us the lowdown on the hilarity of Epic Spell Wars and what actual play podcasts people should be listening to. In the meantime, Wheels gives us the Arkham Horror: The Card Game update, and discusses his adventures in the world of drafting in Magic: The Gathering - Arena. As for Meehan, well - she attempts to poorly explain how to play Backgammon and why it can be used as a tool for gambling.
We also take Jeremy along with us for a ride in the news chopper to chat about all the hoo-haa around the upcoming Magic: The Gathering Strixhaven expansion, the newly announced Camel Up spin-off title and the cross-over game between the Chronicles of Crime and Teotihuacan: City of the Gods series - which leads into a nice discussion around the merits of companion apps in tabletop gaming.
Finally, Jeremy takes the time to answer the audiences’ questions surrounding the history of the Draw Your Dice podcast and what industry trends he wants to see more off. The whole gang also tackles the issue of disconnect between setting and rules in RPGs, as well as provide recommendations for horror roleplaying games.
Otherwise, if you wanted to catch a glimpse of Jeremy’s winning smile, then you can watch a video version of the podcast over on the Dicebreaker YouTube channel right now!
