WizKids will soon be releasing the Quarriors Dice Building Game.

From their announcement:

WizKids announced today the addition of the Quarriors Dice Building Game to their summer 2011 product release schedule. Players take on the roles of Quarriors —mighty mystical warriors—who have the power to capture dangerous quarry from the untamed Wilds. They must conjure the mysterious powers of Quiddity, cast powerful spells, and summon their creatures to battle if they hope to overcome rivals and earn their rightful place as the Champion.

The game features 130 custom molded dice, 53 creature and spell cards and everything needed to play for 2 to 4 players.
“Quarriors has the frenetic excitement of a dice battle game,” said co-designer Eric Lang “with an added ‘deckbuilding’ twist: players customize their dice pools during the game using resources generated by their rolls.”

“It takes the best of deckbuilding games without the tedium of shuffling” said Mike Elliott the other co-designer of the game, “take a typical deckbuilding game, add the speed and fun of dice and in 60 minutes you’re on your second or third game trying unique strategies against your opponents.”

“When Mike and Eric first showed us the game we were amazed at how quick it was to set up and play and really get to the strategic elements of the game. We are excited to continue WizKids tradition of innovating core hobby gaming and believe this will really resonate with players who want to get the most out of a gaming session” said Lax Chandra President of WizKids.

    hhmmm, makes me feel like dragon dice again…

    so much use of the syllable quar….

      Considering Dragon Dice got relaunched by a new company, I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the goal. I’m a DD fan…not convince by this just yet. Will give it a chance, though…maybe.

    The PDF says “deck building strategy without the tedium of shuffling”. So, this is some sort of Dominion style dice game?

    Dumb name – neat icons – I’m a sucker for dice!

    Bring it on 🙂

    How in the world will they break the $1 per dice mold for specialized dice? How in the world will they deliver cool dice for the price they’ll have to sell this non-collectible all-in-one game for (assuming ~$50)?? Can’t wait to hear more.

  • Wow. That is a lame, lame name with lame, lame game terms. “Quiddity?” Really?

  • Acharnement

    130 specialized dice! I am quivering with anticipation. Bring it on!

  • Tor Gaming

    I wonder how may different custom dice you get in the 130 total dice.

    Very interested to see the pricing on this…..
