From the announcement:

All you need to do is find the secret page on our website and enter to win! We'll be awarding one lucky person with a copy of Roll For It! Deluxe, due out in retail stores on November 1st.

Calliope Games specializes in what they call “filler” games. These are games that you use to fill in time when you don’t want to, or don’t have time to, play a larger, longer game. I.E. – they’re games for your gaming backpack.


One of their main games is Roll for it! Well, they’re coming out with a Deluxe Edition and wanted me to let you know what I think about it. So they gave me a copy.

Calliope Games announces the Titan Collection, a series of gateway games from some of the biggest names in game design.



From the post:

In creating the Titan Series, these designers—who have brought us fantastic games such as Magic the Gathering, King of Tokyo, Mechwarrior, Heroclix, Marvel Dice Masters and Quarriors, and many more—will turn their talents from in-depth hobby, RPG, and euro-style games to family-friendly “gateway” games. By bringing their exceptional talents to the gateway game genre, we hope to expand the tabletop hobby and bring more folks back to the table than ever before. Like your grandmother, or your boyfriend, or that friend of yours who seems interested but is intimidated by that elder god who keeps eating your entire party.

Calliope Games is giving you a chance to win their GenCon edition of Roll For It over on their website.



From the contest:

Have you coveted the limited edition Gen Con Roll For It!, but promptly thrown yourself into a pit of despair because you aren’t going to the convention? Let us lift your spirits! You can now enter to win a copy to hug and squeeze and name George. You could probably play it too.

If you need to refresh your memory regarding this game’s awesomeness, please visit our blog. Otherwise, good luck, because this is the only way to get the game without going to Gen Con!

Calliope Games is over on Kickstarter with their latest game, Roll For It, and is looking for funding.

From the campaign:

At its heart, Roll For It! is a resource management game that blends the luck of the die roll with a decision making process that will bring smiles and laughter to all… but it can also make a grown man cry! OK, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but you’ll know what I mean when someone steals your first 15 pointer.

The objective of Roll For It! is to score 40 points by rolling dice to match cards of specific point values. When playing Roll For It!, each player has 6 standard six sided dice of a specific color. These dice represent the players and the decisions they’ll make.
