Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters: Faerun Under Siege

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.

Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters: Battle for Faerûn

I have the Marvel Dice Masters game, and was very excited to hear that a D&D Dice Masters game was being released next month.  Dice Masters is a very quick game that uses dice to build a force that you then attack the other player’s force.  It is very similar to Magic the Gathering where you have choices in your dice & cards and you build a . 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, but I think the dice packs are 1$ each, which makes just the right price to get a set of dice that is very competitive. The foil packs come with 3 sets of dice and their corresponding cards.

Battling Bones Dice Game – Review

From the publisher:
“It’s the fast-moving dice game with a wild side! Players roll all 10 of their color dice at the same time. Dice that come up bones are wild – they count for any number you want. Keep rolling until one player has all 10 of their dice with the same number. Includes rules for 8 other games.”

Inside the Battling Bones box you’ll find instructions and 40 dice in 4 different colors (so there are 10 of each color). Each color has seven standard 6-sided dice and three with 2 sides with number replaced with Xs (different numbers are missing on each die).

The basic way to play Battling Bones is for 2 to 4 players to roll all 10 of their dice at the same time seeing who can get all 10 to show either bones or the same number. On each roll players save the dice they want and pick up and reroll the rest. The basic game ends when someone yells “Bones!” when all their dice show either bones or the same number.
