Asmodee Reveals Details on New Board Game Dice Forge

Asmodee announced more details on Libellund’s upcoming game Dice Forge. As you could probably tell from the title, the game will revolve around upgrading and “reforging” your dice.

You’ll be competing with the other players to gain the most glory, which will win you the favor of the gods. The dice will be the key to gathering resources, gold and shards, which you will need to accomplish legendary deeds. Those legendary deeds will give you the glory you need to win the game.

At the beginning of each player’s turn, all of the players will roll their dice and get the resources shown (gold, shards, or glory points). Glory will help win you the game, but you’ll need gold and shards to upgrade your dice and complete legendary deeds.

So how exactly will you upgrade your dice? You’ll be able to go to the temple to buy new die faces. Any face that you buy, you must immediately use to replace an existing die face. You’ll be able to snap on and off the different faces of your dice.

The die faces in the temple are limited, so you will definitely want to plan ahead to make sure you, and not your opponents, manage to snatch up the best die face.

Besides upgrading dice, you’ll be performing legendary feats, which is where you will need to use your sun and moon shards. As an action, you can move your token to any space in the island. Once there, you’ll use your shards to take the card that corresponds with that location.

These cards will give you bonuses and advantages, such as expanding your reserves which allows you to claim more resources. Or it could give you a bonus that lets you roll your dice four times and immediately collect the resources rolled.

Besides these benefits, you’ll also get glory for accomplishing these feats. And glory helps you win the favor of the gods, which wins you the game.

I’m definitely intrigued by this game. It seems like a fun, innovative resource management game. I’m a little wary about the snapping on and off of the die faces though, and I wonder how durable and easy they are to change.

I’m also worried about how effective changing the faces of the dice will be. Personally, I have pretty wretched luck rolling dice, so bad that I have faith that I could upgrade every side of the die except one, and I’d still manage to roll the crappiest die face every time!

Dice Forge is definitely one of the games I’m looking forward to this year, and I’m excited to try out the game for myself.

Dice Forge is for 2-4 players, takes about 40 minutes to play, and will cost $39.99. The game is due for release in the second quarter of 2017.
