BDaB #42: Dice, Cards, and Other Tools of the Tabletop

We talk about those cool physical game components that we all recognize as the iconic tools of tabletop role-playing. We talk about the tools as well as much of the common lexicon and “inside terms” that permeate modern games, so you too can sound like an expert in nerdy conversations. We also take a special look into Poppy’s home-made “Dice Guide” that she made to help her learn which dice were which when she started playing more RPGs.

Also HOO DAMN this one is late to the feed. That one is on me, I’ve been crazy busy with life and everything else, and am finally (finally!) getting the chance to clear the backlog. Episode 43 is already done and should be out shortly on the trail of this one, too.

Drop us a line! You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram as “Breakfastpuppy” or email us as either NPC, Justjacob, or DrXanderGerrymander at Breakfastpuppies dot com. We have a Discord Channel and a Facebook Page, too. And now we’re live streaming our recordings on Twitch! And let us know your thoughts by leaving a review on iTunes! For even more info and options, check out our main website or our new low-bandwidth alternative feed site.

As always: Rubber Side Down, May your Dice ever roll Crits, Always Drink Responsibly, and Remember to Tip your Bartender (and your dancers and performers)!
