Asmodee have announced Dice Forge, a scheduled Quarter 2, 2017 release. Designed by Régis Bonnessée (Lords of Xidit, Seasons), the game features a “dice-crafting” mechanism, where players will alter the faces of their dice throughout the game in order to increase their power and abilities:
“At the beginning of the game, your dice are weak, offering only small benefits. From these small beginnings, however, you’ll rise to greatness by physically altering the faces of your dice. The dice used in Dice Forge are specially crafted, allowing you to easily snap new faces onto your dice, replacing weaker faces. In fact, changing your dice is one of the fundamental actions that you can take on your turn.”
Dice Forge is intended for 2-4 players, with a playing time of 40 minutes.
