Well Hydrated Yellow? Tim's Magical Green? We fix miniatures paint names on the Dicebreaker Podcast!

Board games? Never heard of 'em.

Matt, Lolies and Meehan talk about what they’ve been up to this week! Which, er, doesn’t include that many board games, so we talk about Shang-Chi, Jungle Cruise and a bunch of other fun stuff instead.

Matt has played the simply charming Happy City, and there’s also time to chat about why board games are going to cost more, whether SolForge Fusion will inherit Keyforge’s algorithmically-generated crown and why capitalism continues to be The Worst.

Then, we begin our life’s work in giving miniatures paints better names - Tim’s Magical Green and Well Hydrated Yellow among them. You’re welcome.

Finally, there’s enough time to answer your questions about board game mascots, the state of the tabletop industry and the best time of the year to buy tabletop RPGs.
