A Double Double ‘n Dice Ep10: A Conversation about Earth-X Origins 2020

Pour your favourite beverage, pull up a comfy chair, and join Kim and Jocelyn to chat about our favourite dice rolling game, Dice Masters, on a A Double Double ‘n Dice podcast.

We’ll be talking about a different topic each week and hope you’ll join us to sit back, chill out, and enjoy the conversation about anything ‘n everything Dice Masters.

This week, we turn the podcast on it’s head and Jocelyn takes over as interviewer to guests Kim, Laurier & Matt, all of whom participated in one form or another in the recent Earth-X Origins: Roll Some Thunder online tournament.

We chat a bit about the teams, the meta, what surprised them, what they expected, and what we can learn from this event, with a few digressions in true DM-North style.

We would love to hear from you! Email us at tripledpodcast@dm-north.com or leave a comment here.

  1. It was great to hear the compliments for how well the earth X on line tournament was run. The men of rollinthunder.xyz and CRGameroom deserve high praise and compensation for everything they did. They were excellent. The part of the conversation I wish the Dice Masters community would have is online play for casual play versus tournament play. Everything I experienced online is great for casual play. The real problems with online views and formats are not good for tournament play. I hope the desire for online play does not over wash getting improvements done before tournament play is really a pursued activity.

    1. Hi Craig, thanks for listening and commenting! I think that’s a fair point. What do you see as the challenges for online tournaments that need resolution, and how can we as a community overcome these challenges, as online play is often our only option right now due to the pandemic?

      1. In 6 matches I had six different views of my opponents play area. There was not a good view of dice or cards that should be available for tournament play. I have heard the opinions that you have to expect things to be different online and that is just fine for casual play. To support tournaments it seems there needs to be a way to support playing the game where both players clearly see their opponents play areas and what that player does. When that is a real option it would be nice to have tournaments online.
