Hero Dice

Hero Dice (from Skies of Dice) is a dice-based competitive role-playing game where everyone is trying to become the most famous Hero. Every player has a die for their race, class, and ability they start with, and can change by striking their own die with rolls during the game. On each turn you roll a game die to decide if you battle another player, fight a Bandit, or gain Fame/Infamy. You can spend Fame/Infamy in combat and recruiting hirelings. Focusing on dice gives a great chance to experiment with different gameplay you wouldn’t find normally with a board game or deck-builder. One moment you’re an Elven Warrior, countering enemy weakness, and the next you’re a Griffin Mage, able to mimic what your opponent can do. Take a look at Hero Dice on Kickstarter and reserve your copy for only $59!

“A mechanic being mathematically satisfying isn’t the same as it being fun to play. In game design, make sure you don’t confuse the two.” Fred Hicks
