Last year I talked about the D&D Dice Masters game, and coming in February WizKids will be releasing the second installment of D&D Dice masters called Faerûn Under Siege! Dice Masters is a quick game that uses dice to build a force that you then attack the other player’s army of dice. It is very similar to Magic the Gathering where you have choices in your dice & cards and you build your own collection of cards versus your opponents. But there is a random factor that you don’t necessarily get in MtG game from rolling dice. The game is a collectible with random expansion dice packs at 1$ each. Each foil packs come with 2 sets of dice and their corresponding cards.
You can download the rules here: http://wizkids.com/rules/DDDM1_Rules_WEB.pdf, and there are videos on Youtube that explain how to play the game.
Here is WizKids’ copy for the game description:
