October 4, 2021 – The popular Dice Throne is doing a Marvel version. Announced via a snazzy video on their social media this morning, it was shared that the new title is coming to Kickstarter on October 25th of this year.
Branded with publishers Roxley and The OP, a teaser video shows a flaming die in a thunderous sky that crashes into the melding of the Dice Throne and Marvel title treatments. This gives you no information but certainly, excitement coursing through your veins. This points you to a Kickstarter preview page that bills the game as – A heart-pumping, fast-playing game of skilled card play & dice manipulation that will have your game nights cheering!
Originally released in 2018, Dice Throne is a fast-paced 2-6 player combat game, whether 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 2v2v2, or free-for-all. Select from a variety of heroes that play and feel completely distinct from one another. Attack opponents and activate abilities by rolling your hero’s unique set of five dice. Accumulate combat points and spend them on cards that have a large range of effects, such as granting permanent hero upgrades, applying status effects, and manipulating dice directly whether yours, your teammate’s, or even your opponent’s.
Each player needs their own hero dice and cards to play Dice Throne. “Season One” of the game was released in a single box that contains components for six heroes, while “Season Two” was released in four small sets that each contain components for two heroes as well as a “Battle Chest” that has these four small sets. Heroes can be mixed-and-matched across seasons.
There are lots of Marvel adaptions of other games out there and the appetite remains strong. This one, like everything from Splendor to Love Letter, is bound to be well received.
