Dice Throne is a game of intriguing dice, tactical card play, powerful heroes, and unique abilities.
It’s a fast-paced 2-6 player combat game (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 2v2v2, or free-for-all). Select from a variety of heroes that play and feel completely distinct from one another. Attack opponents and activate abilities by rolling your hero’s unique set of five dice. Accumulate combat points and spend them on cards that have a large range of effects, such as granting permanent hero upgrades, applying status effects, and manipulating dice directly (yours, your teammate’s, or even your opponent’s).
Dice Throne: Season Two introduces a roster of new heroes and intriguing new matchups.
A stand alone game supporting 2 players. Additional heroes required to play with more than 2 players.
Got a second hand KS copy from Pat. Really nice components and and the whole package is both functional and decorative. Gameplay wise, it is still Yahtzee at its core with some upgrade cards to spice up. Overall a good game, but if I want to play duel game I'd probably play Exceed (particularly season 2) which is deeper and can be finished at about the same time.
Can't seem to beat my son on this one. For the price this game has great production value. This is Yahtzee with combat and some deck building thrown in. Fun quick game easy to learn.
The Dice Throne system is pretty fun, but there's something about it that feels a bit clunky. I'm not sure I can describe it exactly but I'll try. It's something about the risk-reward balance of the different dice combinations. After your first roll, it's generally pretty clear which thing you should go for, and there's generally not too much improvement after the first roll. Somehow, the way the combinations are structured, it just doesn't feel that interesting. The ultimate ability -- I don't think I've ever seen one actually go off. And part of that is because it's not worth trying for, it's too difficult and there's no middle ground if you fail. The card play is OK but again, not that exciting. So overall it's pretty fun, just not quite fun enough.
