Is it a Monty Python tabletop RPG? On the DicebreakerPodcast, we imagine our dreams comedy TRPGs

Another week means another episode of the Dicebreaker Podcast! Matt Jarvis and Wheels are out, meaning that Liv, Maddie, and Meehan the unofficial Powerpuff Girls are in charge.

After much too much discussion about Twilight, Maddie, Meehan, and Liv talk about their tabletop titles. Maddies has been playing a shocker! - more Dungeons & Dragons, as well as Everdell, an adorable woodland themed board game, having visited one of the finest board game cafes in the United Kingdom.

Meehan has recently reintroduced Patchwork, the popular two-player board game, alongside more Gloomhaven Digital, which she has been discovering easier with four players on board. As in a pirate-themed title titled "Ahoy!," she has also created a new title for Root, Leder Games.

Liv joins Meehan in talking about just how much trouble Gloomhaven Digital is, before showing off her brand-new fancy Steamdeck for Meehan and Maddie to watch enviously.

In terms of news, the three hostes have a brief conversation about Elizabeth Hargrave, the founder of Wingspan, who intends to continue the designers fascination with nature by moving from birds to Mother Trees and fungi.

The trio then talk about Monty Python''s cocurricular mediaeval revival programme, which was recently officially announced. It will take place in a medieval parody scene similar to that of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and will allow players and the game master to pick and choose from the various elements of the comedy troupes'' entire filmography and television careers.

The hosts then imagine tabletop comedy mocks based on their personal favourite comedy series and take some suggestions from the audience. But you may have to watch and listen to the episode to see their picks, but there are also some fantastic ones.

On the YouTube channel, The Dicebreaker Podcast is broadcast live every Friday at 2pm. If you can''t make it for the livestream, you may find it on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts. Prefer another player? Head over to the podcast''s RSS feed.
