Sometimes you want to do a bit of roll-playing. Yes, I meant to type it like that. I, myself, enjoy a good dice game from time to time. They're generally pretty rules-light and so playing and teaching the game is pretty. Such is the case with Hero Dice by Skies of Dice. The game is currently up on Kickstarter.
In the game, you're trying to get to 10 Fame (makes a man take things over). You do this by battling against monsters and the other players. Each player has a different race and class die that they roll to see what they're playing. However, if your race die gets bumped during the game, then suddenly you're a new race! Each race has different bonuses versus others, so sometimes getting a change is a good thing. There's a downloadable version of the rules on the Kickstarter page if you'd like to check it out.
The campaign is just underway and is set to run for another 24 days.
