About this project
Welcome to Dice Throne! A game of intriguing dice, tactical card play, powerful heroes, & unique abilities!
Final Live-Stream: 1v1 Manny vs Nate, Barbarian vs Shadow Thief, The Final Showdown!
"Dice Throne = King of Tokyo + Anime * Magic the Gathering. Quick Fun!" -Ed Barafu
Dice Throne is a fast-paced 2 - 6 player combat game (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or free-for-all). *Note that the Standard Edition only supports 2-4 players.
Select from a variety of heroes that play & feel completely distinct from one another. Attack opponents and activate abilities by rolling your hero's unique set of 5 dice. Accumulate Combat Points and spend them on cards that have a large range of effects, such as granting permanent hero upgrades, applying status effects, and manipulating dice directly (yours, your teammate's, or even your opponent's).
- Unique heroes & abilities that upgrade as the game progresses
- 5 dice & 30 cards customized for each hero
- Dice are king, but can also be tamed
- Fast paced & easy to learn
- Rich tactics & strategy
Future Plans: We have so many hero concepts bottled up in our minds that we long to bring to life: Frost Mage, Alchemist, Phantom Blade, Necromancer, Bard, Berserker, Druid, and more! We have also begun to map out plans for solo & cooperative play. We hope in the future you can team up with your friends to take on the Mad King himself!
The results are in! We were selected to be a part of the PAX South Indie Showcase (along with 6 other amazing games)! The show was incredible for us. Tales of the Aggronaut even said, "Dice Throne was definitely my tabletop game of the show… but in truth I think probably it was my game of the show as a whole. I highly suggest if you have the opportunity to check this out at any conventions between now and the projected November release date that you grab hold of it with both hands."
*All art subject to change
*Monk and Paladin characters and their digital dice will be available to the Champion level backers and above.
(Note: All reviewers used slightly older prototype versions. We have been improving rapidly!)

Dice Throne will be shipped from within the US & EU. Additionally, we'll cover a portion of your shipping costs because we love you. However, in order to keep costs down and reduce the potential for errors, we cannot split orders into multiple delivery locations. We allow a maximum of 1 delivery location per backer.

Risks and challenges
There is no doubt about it, making a game is hard. As we have many past successes delivering top-notch video games and printed comics, this is our first Kickstarter tabletop game campaign. So we're plotting our course very carefully to make sure we deliver the best game we can. We have our manufacturing nailed down, international distribution figured out, and we also set a reasonable goal for fulfillment in November 2017. No project is without risks, but we believe we have selected pledges and stretch goals that we can handle successfully. We will do everything we can to make this a seamless campaign and get you the game you want as quick as possible. We look forward to braving this new adventure together!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
