About

       The tile placement and dice-pawn moving tabletop game. 

Mechanic 

DiTiC mixes up and lies somewhere between 4 widely recognized mechanics:

How to play

Dice are generated when 4 tile corners meet, aim to place you own colours together. The majority colour generates a die of value equal to the number of that colour segments in the quadrant.

Each tile is unique and all possible combinations of coloured corners are represented once. Tiles are double sided and each colour is balanced to have the same odds of drawing a tile with its colour on both sides, one side or none at all!

There is also a custom 'action die' that comes into play once a player has generated a die. Watch our demonstration videos on our YouTube channel to see more about this!


Stretch goals

Stretch goals will be announced during the campaign, all will be focused on component upgrades for the dice, box and bag!

Shipping

Shipping is charged after the campaign (apart from that Early Bird reward which offers a subsidised shipping charge to the Uk and Europe) to avoid the shipping charges being added towards the funding goal. Quotes have been received from Meeple Logistics, QML and Amazon fulfillment services and the best prices will be sought for all backers. We are hoping to keep the costs below £10 for all countries and to keep costs down we'll be looking at subsidising where we can, watch this space!

Reviews

Hairy Game Lords  review 

"A game that deserves a place on everyone's game shelf."

The creation of DiTiC:

DiTiC started as a fragment of an idea after a long games night with some fellow tabletop enthusiasts. The first prototype was created with felt tips and a sharpie-drawn action die.  

The first ever play test - won by one move
The first ever play test - won by one move

Very quickly, rule alterations and refinements sprang up; 

  • "What if..."
  • "Shouldn't you be able to..." (board gamers always want to argue the rules)
  • "I can't tell the difference between the colours..." (shout out to our colour-blind games master)
  • etc...

A  surprising amount of the first tests were won with only a move or two margin. Many, many play testing hours later and the rules are agreed, blind tested, age tested and written up.

Meanwhile work was progressing on creating decent tiles, images were created and a punchboard set was ordered.  

In the end this manufacturer couldn't get accurate cutouts within 1mm so they were rejected, their dice were also not so nice. Still, you get the idea.

A final mock up, including box and card-inlay, was created to get a sense of dimensions and help with conversations with manufacturers.  

Note: the green dice will ultimately be black, and the custom die will not be sharpie-drawn...

Risks and challenges

The fundraising goal covers the manufacturing costs and the Kickstarter expenses for a minimum order, once this is met then any quantity of sets can be achieved without further budget alterations. The manufacturers require a minimum order and say that they can achieve any quantity of units necessary.

The files, rules and final graphic work are all complete, so therefore at the end of the campaign the timeline is completely down to the manufacturers and fulfillment services. The DiTiC team will be keeping a close eye on progress and has chosen partners that have a record of delivering high-quality products quickly.
