WizKids announces Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters

WizKids is expanding the Dice Masters collection of games with the announcement of Dungeons & Dragons, Forgotten Realms Dice Masters.



From the website:

NECA/WizKids is excited to announce a new Dice Masters game set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe.

“We’re excited to expand our Dungeons & Dragons portfolio with the addition of Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters. Dice Masters is an all new game that utilizes WizKids Games’ proprietary Dice Building Game platform where players collect and assemble their “party” of adventurer dice and battle in head to head gameplay. Dice Masters has had huge initial success, is a very exciting platform and should fit perfectly with the world and lore of Dungeons & Dragons. You can expect to see some of the most recognizable monsters and characters, such as Kobolds, Beholders, Mindflayers, Dragons, Drow, and many more!” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids Games. “We’re excited to work with Mike Elliott and Eric M. Lang, who brought the original Dice Masters game to life, and we are sure they will bring Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters to the table top in unique and immersive ways.”

Nathan Stewart, Brand Director for Dungeons & Dragons, was equally enthusiastic. “We are excited about the addition of Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters to the WizKids product line. We’re sure fans will enjoy this fun and unique way to experience the legendary heroes and monsters of the Forgotten Realms.”

The Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters line will begin rolling out in Q4 2014. Products will include Starter Sets, Booster Packs, Play Mats, and a Storage Box to keep your Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters collection in!

    Aren’t these all just Quarriors with a different font?

      There’s more deckbuilding meta also, due to the collectability aspect. But to defend WK, in most of the their releases rarity is not tied to usability, and a lot of chase/super rare things are just fun ideas or cult favorites tailored to collectors.

    I think there are a few differences in the mechanics, but yes.

    More importantly… are you actually going to make enough so hobby stores can get the stock they ask you for on initial release WizKids or are you taking them away from us to send to big box store again ?

    So much for supporting the stores that run your events, run demos and support your business

    Are these compatible with my sizable collection of Dragon Dice?
