    BR6 Ep 77 The Approaching Menace

    BR6 Ep 77 The Approaching Menace

    Welcome to the first episode of year 3! Probably the longest running Dice Masters podcast (once you factor in those extra long Reserve Pool holidays 😉 )

    The Ministry of Dice are back and ready to fill your lovely ear holes with yet more Dice Masters chatter.

    We’ve got a big intro this week. With so much going on we needed to take a chunk of time to update & remind you dear, cherished listeners on: most notably the MoDPDM @ UKGE and the Subscriber Giveaway, in addition to the usual catch up on what’s been going on around the Ministry.

    Then it’s on to a discussion about the idea of “best of 3” vs “best of 1” rounds – which is the better set up for organised play? We think there’s pro & cons to both, but regularly choose “Best of 3” for our events, including the upcoming MoDPDM @ UKGE.

    Finally – we have our latest guest on to face the Ministry of Dice’s “The Bar”. In addition to his Dice Masters streaming; this guy is producing one of our favourite things in all the internet at the moment, and we totally think you should check it out. Listen to find out more, as well as hear a landmark moment in the history of “The Bar”.

    All these, and sooooo much more. Hit play now, you’re gonna love it!

    While You’re Here…
    If you enjoyed the podcast, then we’d love you forever if you could take a minute to go and give us a 5 star rating and maybe a short review. It really helps us get the word out to new listeners and is encouraging to Andy.

    BR6 Ep 76 Third MoDversary

    BR6 Ep 76 Third MoDversary

    Would you Adam & Eve it – The Ministry of Dice has been podcasting about Dice Masters for 3 years as of this week!

    In a change to our usual set up, as a little something special to mark the occasion, this episode was recorded live in front of a live audience on Friday 17th July over YouTube stream. Something of a little Birthday party to mark the occasion. This is the audio from that event, with just a little bit of editing on Andy for the more sensitive ear’d listener (the beer was following (it was a party) and Andy let a few naughty words slip out from time to time) be warned though – while the bluer word have been cut the innuendo is on 11 – don’t play near children if you don’t want to awkwardly explain a few things.

    We open the episode with our usual chit chat about what we’ve been up to before jumping into a classic Ministry of Dice quiz from Andy’s “Q Branch”, with a little twist in an effort to cater to both the video audience on the day AND the podcast audience in this episode. Did it work? Listen to find out.

    Then it’s into the main segment – The MoD AMA. Chris & Andy field questions submitted by the audience (some in advance). Settle in for the unprepared, off-the-cuff reflections on the burning hot topics, such as what are the MoD’s favourite biscuits, who their favourite guests have been, and how can we get the game of Dice Masters to grow even more.

    We’ve also got a special piece of correspondence from our biggest fan, who has written to us on this special occasion to congratulate the lads.

    Finally; we launch an exciting new giveaway in celebration of this landmark event and help us reach our YouTube subscriber goal.
    Our deepest & sincerest thanks for all the support this last three years, and here’s to a fourth year of MoD madness to come.
    All of this, and SO MUCH MORE. Hit play to enjoy…

    While You’re Here…
    If you enjoyed the podcast, then we’d love you forever if you could take a minute to go and give us a 5 star rating and maybe a short review. It really helps us get the word out to new listeners and is encouraging to Andy.

    BR6 Ep 75 Ten Godcatchers In The Field

    BR6 Ep 75 Ten Godcatchers In The Field

    The Ministry of Dice is back once again with more Dice Masters chat from the lad Chris & Andy.

    It’s a team chat heavy episode this week – so strap in for lots of juicy card combo talk for the kings of mediocre game play.

    We start with the usual conversation to warm up and catch up on all their gaming activity over the last couple of weeks before moving into a new segment “Set Battles”.

    What’s Set Battles”? It’s where we take 2 Dice Masters sets, build teams from them, and discuss which set has the stronger meta cards. It’s not just chat though – we’ll follow up by playing the teams live over on our YouTube channel (www.YouTube.com/TheMinistryofDice) to truly settle the debate.

    Then its on to our re-cap of our participation in the Earth X Origins online event. We’ll share our teams and our ideas when we built them and run over some highlights from our games from the day.

    Finally – it’s a classic True Mister Six Top Ten Countdown to finish us off this week – this one comes with a serious innuendo warning so cover those ears on the kiddies if you don’t want to be explaining some stuff.

    All this, and sooooooo much more on the Ministry of Dice…

    BR6 Ep 74 Under The Table So They Can’t See

    It’s episode 74 of the Ministry of Dice podcast – your one-stop shop for frivolous, yet entertaining (?) Dice Masters related blather from the dynamic duo of Chris & Andy.

    We’ve another packed instalment for you this episode. We open up with our usual warm-up chat, as well as discuss some key, notable bits n’ bobs in the world of Dice Masters.

    Then it’s on to the first “beefy section with a bit of natter about the Attack Step. We’ve got two very different views about the Attack Step – Andy loves the thrill of combat, Chris is… less into it. What drives these opinions on this fundamental aspect of the game? Listen to (maybe) find out…

    Finally; as a tie-in to our recent Infinity Gauntlet Countertop Display unboxing, we do a classic Ministry of Dice “Pick of the Week” and share a card each from our list of stand-out pulls from the box.
    All of this, and soooooo much more.

    Oh, and a little disclaimer, Andy’s opinions about Magic: The Gathering players are entirely his own, and would encourage that he be independently trolled for his comments and leave Chris out of it 😉

    Enjoy!

    BR6 Ep 72 Geordi Racer Fly!

    It’s the latest episode of the Ministry of Dice everyone! We’re back again with our fortnightly Dice Masters natter for your enjoyment.

    This episode opens with the usual catch up & chatter from the lads before we move into a look at the One Big Weekend 2 Online event that took place on the 16th May. In episode 71 we made some predictions around what we thought the OBW meta might look like and so re-visit those predictions in this episode. We discuss some of the key teams and see whether the cards, combos, and win conditions we predicted were on the button, or way off the mark.

    Then it’s over to Andy who’s been getting creative in the Q Branch once again. It’s been long overdue; the MoD Historical Dice Masters set has gone without some love for a while, so Andy has been away and developed a small Basic Action expansion to this legendary Dice Masters custom creation. We are living through some historically significant, unprecedented times after all, so no time like the present to draw some inspiration for this ongoing MoD project.

    Hit play below to hear all this goodness, and much, much more…

Great dice masters podcast

MoD is a fun, light dicemasters podcast, presented with humour by Chris and Andy showing a real love for the game. They cover the meta (and more obscure) cards and combos and the scene as a whole. If you already love dicemasters (if not, why not), or are just getting into the game (well done and welcome), then you need to listen to MoD.

Pure British Brilliance

A glorious blend of humour, and informative discussions on the great game that is Dice masters. Great banter and high level chat that will be of interest to old and new players.

Pembo87 ,

Great dice masters content

Chris and Andy give a great mix of light hearted and top meta game chat whilst also giving some cracking support to the community both locally by running events and globally with their ideas for formats and team brews. A great listen
