What is Dicing With Design: Role Playing, Wargaming, Card games & Board Game Design?

The Dicing with Design podcast is all about games design: how they're created, designed and played. We talk everything games design, from role playing games, to wargaming, to collectible card games, to board games, to video games. We'll dissect what makes a good game, and what makes a system terrible to play.



We're planning to create out own game over the course of the podcast, designing live on-air, and alongside the games design chat, we'll be talking general gaming news and views. We play a lot so there's plenty to talk about! Check out our site at www.dicingwithdesign.com and get in touch with us there, or on twitter at @gamercolin @joejprince or @grantsensei . Let us know what you think!
