Martian Dice

Steve Jackson Games seems to be on a roll with getting their games into stores other than game stores, and this time it’s their latest dice game.  Batman: the Animated Series Dice Game has just been released and plays like a variation of the Zombie Dice or Martian Dice games of matching symbols to try and get the most points.  The game will be available through the usual channels, but you will also be able to find the game in Hot Topic stores as well.  This means next to all the other apparel and items associated with the latest DC Comics movie, you will be able to find this dice game.  One thing to note is that this is not happening in every store, so head over to the Steve Jackson Games website to see if a store near you is listed.

Did you ever want to build a treehouse as a child…or if you’re like me as an adult? Did the treehouse of your dreams have a pizza parlor or hotdog stand, a water slide or surf simulator, a board game room or a rock climbing wall? Did you ever build it? Well now you can with Best Treehouse Ever now on Kickstarter.

Have you ever dreamed of building a super awesome treehouse? Now it’s time to live that dream! In Best Treehouse Ever, players compete to build the best treehouse in the neighborhood. Players will outfit their treehouse with the coolest rooms, all while making sure their tree doesn’t tip over…and that their rooms are the most impressive at the end of the game. Building takes place over three weeks/rounds, and at the end of the third week the winner will be the player with the best treehouse ever!

In Best Treehouse Ever 2-4 players age 10+ will draft cards and use spatial reasoning to expand their treehouse. They will need to keep an eye on other players treehouse’s as well because at the end of each round they take turns deciding which room types will score. Play time is 20-30 minutes and is sure to be a hit with gamers and families.

It is designed by Scott Almes who designed hit games like the Tiny Epic Kingdoms, Tiny Epic Defenders, Tiny Epic Galaxies, Harbour, Martian Dice, and Kings of Air and Steam. It will be published by Green Couch Games whose Fidelitas should be available in stores soon, and beautifully illustrated by Adam McIver.

Best Treehouse Ever has already received lots of praise from reviewers and already reached its funding goal. It has also unlocked two stretch goals so stop dreaming of building a treehouse and head over to Kickstarter to see if Best Treehouse Ever is a game that you’ll want in your collection.
