Dized is a great app where you can look at various rules for games with cross-referencing and help with setup and all that. Paizo is happy to announce that their Pathfinder Adventure Card Game is now available on there. Make sure you're learning the game correctly.
The biggest hurdle for gaming is just learning the rules for the games you want to play. And, let's face it, a lot of games are a bit tough on their first couple play-throughs. Dized is an app that teaches you the game while you play. Instead of trying to just read through the rulebook and hope you get what they mean, the app will explain things in a simple manner and show you what you're supposed to do. The app is up on Kickstarter now.
When you get a new game, obviously you need to learn how to play it. However, not all rulebooks are created equally, and not everyone learns simply by reading the rules on a page. That's where Dized comes in. It teaches you the game in a simple, intuitive manner that takes all the guesswork out of things. It's like having someone there who already knows how to play. Their early access is now available. They've also announced a Kickstarter campaign to expand the range of games on the app.
Speaking of bite-size morsels of joy, we've got our regular assortment of stories for you.
On the platter today we have: Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Thunder Gun, Trapdoor Bringing Playbook Digital RPG Companion to Android, Mage Company launches new website for Dungeonland, Smart Device App Dized Being Soft-Launched October 2016, The Board Game Show Interviews The Donner Party Game Designer Greg Porter, New Lamia Available From Brother Vinni, Super Chibi Round 2 - Reboot Funded, Three New Mechs Available From Raging Heroes, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Orc Mech-Boss, and New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel.
