The Attack Zone, a part of the Reserve Pool Network, is a podcast dedicated to the competitive side of the Dice Masters game from WizKids. Whether constructed or draft, store-level organized play or World Championships, we have you covered. Hosts Dave, Randy, and JT move the show through a variety of topics and regular features, all designed to help every one of us increase our understanding and level of play. We don't talk down as experts on a subject; we talk to one another and the community as people who have strengths and weaknesses and want to improve. The show is released biweekly on Tuesdays.

Excellent Spin Off!
If you don’t already know this is a spin off of “The Reserve Pool” podcast. And it’s starting strong. Focused on draft and constructed strategy or gameplay examples. Good Stuff!
If you enjoy Dice Masters you won’t want to miss this bi-weekly podcast. These guys always work hard to bring fun, fresh content and keep it interesting. I look forward to each new episode.
I love this show; great hosts, great format; love the six pack(do AoU); would mind it being a 12 pack. Would love a show on combos, especially few card non-gimmicky high hopes types. Even old combos that newer player might not understand completely. A show specifically on but order logic would be awesome as well.
