    BR 6 Ep 124 He’s Such A Tease

    Welcome to the 124th Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    Tune in to get the MoD update and the latest news & info about the Wizkids Game Dice Masters.

    We kick off with our usual start and catch up on our recent games, chatting over the teams we’ve been used, how they fared, and how we might improve them. The UK Games Expo event is swift approaching, so we talk for quite a while about our team testing for the event.

    Next up it’s the “Community Focus”. There’s a fair few big event & what not going on, IRL and Virtual, so we provide a quick run down of upcoming game play opportunities to shore up some attendance.

    Then we move on to a classic Ministry of Dice “Pick of the Week”. The official Superman: Kryptonite Crisis spoiler schedule has been in full swing, and we’ve revealed a number of new cards across our website and the YouTube channel. We’ve both picked a standout card each to discuss and share why we like it.

    Our second featured segment is a brief one in which we ask a question of our listeners: we know that Dark Phoenix Saga is being tested in the competitive meta, but what about the more casual metas? In what ways has the new set release impacted other formats? We call out for our North American friends for input on how the new set is shaping up in fun, restricted formats across stores & kitchen tables.

    All this… and Andy’s voice is unusual this episode. He thinks it makes him sound “well hard”, but in actual fact it makes him sound like he’s manning an 0905 line…

    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.

    BR 6 Ep 123 "Kang? Kang?"

    Welcome to the 123rd Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    Tune in to get the MoD update and the latest news & info about the Wizkids Game Dice Masters.

    We kick off with our usual start and catch up on our recent games, chatting over the teams we’ve been used, how they fared, and how we might improve them. We also provide a few updates on the UK Games Expo event and the recent spate of spoilers we’ve released leading up to the Superman: Kryptonite Crisis set release.

    Then we move on to a conversation about drafting the Dark Phoenix Saga. Andy’s not the biggest fan, nor is he all that experienced with drafting Dice Masters, so we take some time to home in on some approaches and some Dark Phoenix Saga specific ideas we can use in the UKGE draft.

    Our second featured segment is a cross between a “Pick of the Week” and an “Unsung Hero”, as Chris circles back around to his card pick for the “Unsung Hero” segment a few weeks back that we never got around to talking about.

    All this… and find out about Andy’s Marvel Villain terrets problem…

    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.

    We kick off with our usual start and catch up on what the lads have been up to.

Then it’s on to reporting about our recent games, chatting over the teams we’ve been used, how they fared, and how we might improve them.

    Then we move on to a Community Focus, once again reminding folks of the details of the recently announced Two Team Takedown from DM North and the upcoming UK Games Expo event for British rollers. Links for info on both can be found below.

    Our first featured segment this episode is then about team building and preparation for an event like the UK Games Expo. We share some of the hints & tips we’ve gathered from over the years for both having success AND enjoying the tournament event experience.
    Our second featured segment is a Q Branch. Andy’s been tinkering away and has yet another Dice Masters themed quiz to participate in. Listen, play along, and test your knowledge with Andy.

    All this… and find out how Andy feels about Magic Mike…

    BR 6 Ep 121 Ant-Man’s Clearly Grey

    Welcome to the 121st Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    Tune in to get the MoD update and the latest news & info about the Wizkids Game Dice Masters.

    We kick off with our usual start and get caught up. We discuss some of our thoughts (and frustrations) at the release of Dark Phoenix Saga in North America and the delays in it reaching other shores. We also report on our recent games, chatting over the teams we’ve been using and how they fared.

    Then we move on to a Community Focus, sharing the details of the recently announced Two Team Takedown from DM North and a reminder about the upcoming UK Games Expo event for British rollers. Links for info on both can be found below.

    Our first featured segment this episode is all about listener correspondence. We revisit our segment last episode about the least playable Super Rares in Dark Phoenix Saga and the listener provided combos and ideas, before moving on to a question generated by RJ Retro’s recent appearance on the ‘cast.

    Our second featured segment is an “Unsung Heroes” look at a card Andy has happened across lately. An “Unsung Heroes” segment is all about cards that are good, but often over-shadowed by a splashier version of their personae.

    All this… and find out Andy’s strange theory about needing the toilet…

    BR6 Ep 120 Too Long And Too Complicated

    Welcome to the 120th Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    Tune in to get the MoD update and the latest news & info about the Wizkids Game Dice Masters.

    We kick off with our usual start: after a brief reminder about the upcoming UK Game Expo event, we get to chatting about our recent gaming lives, including our Dice Masters matches. We also share a bit of correspondence in which a question is posed about non-basic actions.

    Our first featured segment this episode is on the subject of Dark Phoenix Saga super-rares. BUT, not in the way you think – we’ve selected the 4 super-rares form the set that we think are the LEAST playable and start a discussion about some potential teams we could make with them.

    Our second featured segment is an intervention. Chris thinks Andy has been neglecting too many good cards with his weird no “5 lines of text” rule. Chris is going to try and convince him he’s wrong. Because he is.

    All this… and find out why Manchester is a great place to visit…

    BR6 Ep 119 We Do Actually Know…

    Welcome to the 119th Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    Tune in to get the MoD update and the latest news & info about the Wizkids Game Dice Masters.

    We kick off with our usual start and share a little about what’s been going on in the last couple of weeks, including the teams & the games we’ve been using lately, before moving into an update about the Dice Masters event we are hosting at the UK Games Expo.

    Then it’s into our first featured segment of the day. With Dark Phoenix Saga now released in North America we share a couple of cards from the set that we have are eager to get our hands on and discuss our initial thoughts.

    Finally – it’s wild assumption & crazy speculation time with the MoD as we discuss what the potential sneaky dice pics on Wizkids’ social media could mean. We offer up four of our speculations as to what they could be. (Or maybe we know, and we’ve snuck the correct answer in? We’ll let you decide… 😉)

    All this… and Andy let’s us know about his new trainers…

    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.

Fabulous!

This Podcast is so good that the CDC may ban it! Entertaining and informative. My only wish is that it came out weekly. Thank you, my Imperial Overlords, from your humble and obedient Colorado colonist!

Dyer Kitty ,

Delightful and Informative!

I love these two! They're fun to listen to and they are a great source of information. If you love Dice Masters - give them a listen!
