German publisher AMIGO Spiel has announced it will be publishing Dice Hunters of Therion by Magic: the Gathering designer Richard Garfield with artwork by Everdell illustrator Dann May.

In Dice Hunters of Therion, players will take on the role of 1 of 4 different animal heroes. Players have three sets of colored dice; white, red, and yellow. You start with the white dice available but have to unlock the yellow and red dice by rolling their face on one of the white dice. On a player’s turn they roll their available dice up to three times, setting aside dice they want to keep. They then resolve actions based on the kept dice, with the goal of capturing any villains that are on the loose. Once the last villain has been captured, the game will end and the player with the highest score is the winner.

Dice Hunters of Therion plays with 2-4 players, ages 8+, with an estimated playtime of 30 minutes.

Where to start? Where to start? Hmm... I like to play games? Yeah, that's brilliant. <delete><delete><delete> I'll try again later.
