Asmodee acquires Rory’s Story Cubes line of dice sets

In news that is as surprising as the sun rising this morning, Asmodee has acquired another long standing “game” line, Rory’s Story Cubes.  Rory’s Story Cubes is not really a game per se, they are sets of dice that have symbols on each side with a theme, like Doctor Who, Batman, or the more generic Actions.  Each set of dice can be used in a story telling type activity where you roll the dice and tell a story based on what was rolled.  Even more recently a Kickstarter was launched to create a full board game around this story telling usage of the dice.  All of this now will fall under the purview of Asmodee and will be distributed by them worldwide, allowing for the dice sets to reach an even wider audience then before.  The folks at the Creativity Hub will still be involved a bit in development of new sets, but the design and release of them will be chiefly done by Asmodee.  You can read the announcement on the Rory’s Story Cubes website.
