biblios dice Lately, it seems as though many games are getting the "dice makeover" - Nations Dice, Roll for the Galaxy, Pandemic: The Cure, all recently reborn as a dice version of their former selves.  Hoping to be next on that list is Biblios Dice, now on Kickstarter.  From the campaign page:
Biblios Dice is a dice adaptation of the popular game Biblios. As in Biblios, players assume the role of medieval abbots seeking to establish the most prestigious scriptorium by reproducing and illustrating valuable manuscripts. The artwork contains a wide variety of brilliant colors and the dice will be etched, providing an aesthetically pleasing effect to a fun and thoughtful gaming experience. It is for 2-5 players and it lasts about 40 minutes.

Pledge levels include Biblios Dice and the ability to pledge for combos that include other games from Dr. Finn's Games.  I've definitely got my eye on this one - Biblios features a very interesting drafting mechanic and morphs into an intriguing auction game in the second phase.  If Steve Finn can capture this same feeling in a dice game, this is going to be one to watch.  You can check out the Kickstarter page here with information on pledge levels, stretch goals, and video reviews.
