Why do you climb the mountain? Because it’s there.
Just, y’know, what out for yetis as you’re climbing. You don’t think there’s yetis? Should I remind you that the mountain you’re about to climb is called Yeti Mountain? There’s yetis, alright! And you should watch out for them (as well as other dangers of climbing a mountain) as you and your other mountaineers race to the top.
That’s the story behind Dicey Peaks, a new board game from Calliope Games that’s up now on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Dicey Peaks is a thrilling tile and dice game for 2-6 players, created by acclaimed designer Scott Almes (the Tiny Epic series, Harbour). Racing to the fabled flag atop Yeti Mountain, players take turns rolling dice and skillfully choosing whether to climb or rest. As you advance, you’ll reveal tiles that can help or hinder your progress. Avoid avalanches and watch out for the Yetis… for when they attack, you might lose more than just your turn! If you crave adventure, suspense, and danger, then scale your way to the top of Dicey Peaks!
The Kickstarter is up and running now. It’s about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 29 days left to go.
