After completing the second campaign for the elemental dice, Studio 4am has decided to try their hand again at making a game, Alchemy of Askrias.  Alchemy of Askrias is a dice building game but instead of being part of a roll and move game like Rattlebones, it works more like a traditional deck building game where you are trying to improve and upgrade your dice to achieve victory.  In the beginning you have three shared dice with basic components on them and one blank personal die.  You will roll all the dice and based on what comes up be able to modify the faces of your personal die or the shared dice to make them better.  You continue to do this so that you can start rolling the combinations you need to get the victory point cards, first to 10 points is the winner.

You can get more information and look at some videos of the dice in action on their Kickstarter page.  They are fully funded at this point and moving into stretch goals, but beware the shipping, since it is coming from New Zealand the price to ship it stateside is high.

dice city

By decree of the Queen, there needs to be a new capital!

The Kingdom of Rolldovia is in turmoil. Her royal highness the Queen, has decreed that there will be a new capital, after the old one was sacked by hordes of barbarians and bandits from the south. As leaders of one of the country’s influential noble families, players vie with each other to establish their provincial city as the best home for Rolldovia’s new capital.

Those who enjoy city-building games rejoice!  Those who love dice games rejoice again!  AEG and Artipia Games announce Dice City, a city-building, dice-crafting game in which players will be seeking to gain the approval of the others in the kingdom.  To promote your city, you can create strong armies, construct wondrous buildings, or open up trade routes.

Dice City is a “dice-crafting” game, in that the locations in your city act as the changing faces of your dice each turn.  The goal to winning is to manage your city and its natural resources wisely.

The game will contain:

  • 4 player boards
  • 20 dice
  • 149 cards
  • 93 tokens
  • 4 player aids
  • 1 rulebook

Dice City is for 1-4 players ages 14 and up and plays in about 45 minutes.  The game is scheduled for release in October of 2015.  For more information about Dice City, check out its page at AEG’s website here.

At the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this week, WizKids announced that they will be partnering with Nickelodeon to create two new games set to release later in 2015–and they will be themed with the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

The two games that are planned will be a TMNT version of the HeroClix collectible figure-battling game, and a TMNT version of the Dice Masters Dice Building game.  Representatives from both WizKids and Nickelodeon both have shared their excitement over this new venture.  These two new games will be released to the public later this year.
