    BR 6 Ep 104 What’s This?! Dice Masters Release News AND Spoilers!

    Welcome to the 104th Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    After getting into the ins & outs of the lad’s last two week’s gaming (including getting our Wednesday Night Dice Master live stream back up & running! Woo hoo), we bounce into a “Community Focus”. There’s been some hot Dice Masters release dates news recently and we go over all the key details and share a few of our thoughts on the new schedule.

    AND there were some Kryptonite Crisis spoilers in the new schedule announcement too, so we just HAD to talk about those. It’s a classic Ministry of Dice “Pick of the Week”, where the lads choose one of those Kryptonite Crisis spoilers each and explains why it’s their hot pick from the reveals.

    Finally – we re-visit our recent discussions about staying engaged and interested in the game through the long wait for new releases. Dice Masters fans have been eagerly anticipating new sets, but with an even longer wait on the cards, we refresh a few of our ideas & plans to keep the game fun in the meantime.

    All this – and Andy fills us in on the tidiness of his office…

    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 103 A Few Beers At The UK Games Expo

    Welcome to the 103rd Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat.

    This weekend just gone is the UK Games Expo, and that is the theme of this episode.

    After our usual chat about our gaming activity over the last two weeks we move into the first of our UK Games Expo themed segments. The topic of discussion: face-to-face play. We briefly re-visit the philosophy of the MoDPDM idea, talk a little about how we get one happening, and touch on what we expect at the UKGE.
    Then Andy has prepared a quiz from the Q Branch themed around the format we’re adopting for the MoDPDM@UKGE 2021 – Single Affiliation. We encourage you to play along and see if you can best Chris’ score.

    And finally – it’s the coverage of the big day. Chris has captured a few little bits of audio from a handful of the weekends MoDPDM @ UKGE participants to talk about their Single Affiliation teams and how they found the event.

    All this – and Andy nostalgically reflects on his hunt for a suitable aka…

    It’s another outstanding episode of Dice Masters podcast goodness with the Ministry of Dice! You like podcasts? You like Dice Masters? You like listening to two idiots having a natter? Then we’ve got just the thing for you...

    We kick things of with a standard intro catching up with the lads and getting some updates on what they’ve been up to since the last episode. Find out the latest about Chris ramping back up the content now his internet has been sorted, what tabletop gaming has been happening at BritRollerSix Towers, and how Andy has been settling in at his new job.

    Then it’s a Dice Masters Community Focus with some fantastic news for UK based Dice Masters fans who are heading to the UK Games Expo.

    Those who entered our Century episode Giveaway will have been waiting for this next segment – we announce the winners of the lovely promos up for grabs. Oh – and I’m sneaking it in here to see if they notice but in addition to those named in the ep “Soy Sauce” on Discord needs to get in touch too. All will become clear when you listen to the segment.

    To finish up we have a chat about Super Rares, in an attempt to answer the question “Why are there so many good Super Rares in Dice Masters?” We share our thoughts on SRs, as well as some insights from Wizkids about how they choose what should, or shouldn’t, be a Super Rare.

    All of this – and which is better at Discord? Andy, or a blowfish?

IndyMikeBB ,

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!
