Wizkids seems to be all about the hype train as of late with the teasing of a new DnD Adventure game, and now it’s a new Dice Masters set. This new set will be set in the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons and Dragons. It will have all new spells, adventurers, and monsters, plus a new draft pack format to allow for tournament play. Each pack will come with enough cards and dice that when two packs are put together, you have everything you need for a game. Look for this new set to appear on store shelves in September of this year.
Bushiroad, known for other TCGs like CardFight!! Vanguard, are getting ready to release a new TCG designed by Mike Elliot called Dragonborne – Rise to Supremacy. What makes this game interesting beyond the setting and art is that dice are being introduced to enhance in-game effects. You will be able to use the dice to defend your forts, strengthen your units, or enhance your spells, making them better. You can check out more on Dragonborne’s Facebook page, and look forward to it’s release in August of this year.
Last, IDW Games is reprinting a highly rated abstract strategy game called Torres. In Torres you are the sons of the king, vying for prestige in order to be crowned the next ruler of the land. To do that you will need to rebuild the kingdom with the most impressive castle you can. In the game you will use action points to build up your castle, but you have to not only build it tall, but also spread it out across the land. Plus you will also be playing cards and placing knights to help earn you points, and whoever has the most at the end is the winner. Look for this game on store shelves in August.
