Thursday September 05, 2013
WizKids will release a new collectible dice game with Quarriors!-style mechanics in December under its new Dice Masters brand: Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men Dice Building Game.
Marvel Dice Masters is a new collectible dice building tabletop game designed by Quarriors! creators Michael Elliott and Eric M. Lang. Players collect and assemble a team of character dice (Captain America, Wolverine, Spider-Man among others) and battle head-to-head. An average game should play in one hour.
The Avengers vs. X-Men Starter Set comes with 44 custom dice, 38 cards, two dice bags and a core rulebook. The starter is labeled for "2+" players, retails for $14.99 and should street on December 4th.
The Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men blind foil pack, which also releases December 4th, contains two cards and two dice (featuring Wolverine, Iron Man, Thor and others). The gravity feed contains 60 units which retail for $0.99 each. The Avengers vs. X-Men game will be the first WizKids dice game in a collectible format. No rarity scheme has been revealed.
In addition to Quarriors! and its expansions, WizKids has also released a Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game using its proprietary Dice Building Game platform.
The Marvel Dice Masters release will be followed up with other licensed properties, including Yu-Gi-Oh!.
