Dicebreaker is Eurogamer’s newest sister site, a hub for all things tabletop gaming: board games, card games, pen-and-paper roleplaying, miniatures and more. The Dicebreaker YouTube channel launched recently, with a website to follow in the coming months. Dicebreaker Recommends is a new regular Eurogamer column from Johnny Chiodini, introducing us to a must-play game from the realm of the physical.
One of the things that most excites me about working on Dicebreaker is the chance to help other people discover new tabletop games, whether that be a pen-and-paper role-playing game, a party game you can learn in two minutes or a heavily involved strategy game that weighs as much as a small family car.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since launching the YouTube channel, however, it’s that there are a lot of people out there who want to try tabletop games but have absolutely no idea where to start. In all the excitement of helping people expand their existing collections, in order words, we completely forgot to cater for those who had no collection at all.
