*Note: All artwork are temporary place holders*

Trolls are odd creatures, constantly fighting among themselves. They start physical confrontations over the smallest slights or sometimes just get bored with the doldrums of squashing want-to-be adventurers.  Whatever the cause, they frequently decide to battle against each other to see who is the Trolliest of them all! None of these battles do any lasting harm to the trolls, other than to their pride, as their mangled bodies simply regenerate the damage, getting them back on their feet in time for a dinner of Halfling stew. So, fellow troll, the battle horn has been blown. Grab your club and shield, it is time to see if you have what it takes to be the last troll standing!

The Game

Troll Dice is a fast paced competitive dice game for 2 or more players that casts each player as a troll in a last man standing battle royale.  Players take turns rolling dice, balancing attacking their opponents and regenerating their own health.  Once your health drops to zero, you are out. 

There are sixteen(16) total dice of three types in Troll Dice:
Combat Dice: White dice with Club symbols and shield symbols. These dice are used to attack your opponents and for your opponents to try to defend themselves.  The game comes with six (6) Combat Dice
Wound Dice: Red dice with a heart symbol, a club symbol, a fist symbol on and a blood drop symbol.  These dice are rolled instead of combat dice as you take wounds.  The game comes with five (5) Wound Dice
Regeneration Dice: These are green dice with a heart symbol, a double heart symbol and a blood drop symbol.  You can choose to replace combat dice with these to focus on healing.  The game comes with five (5) regeneration dice.

On your turn, you roll six dice, a combination of white, red, and green, depending on your wounds and strategy.  Depending on what you roll you may attack your opponents, heal yourself, or even have your attacks countered back on you!

Who Are We

Matt Hanson - Designer, Tester

Monument Games, Inc is a small independent game development company entirely composed of gamers.  We have spent most of our lives around gaming consoles or at tables with friends playing pen and paper RPGs, board games, and strategy games. We regularly enjoy patrolling our local game stores to check out new releases or to try new games other people were playing. 

Our company mission is to first and foremost provide the gaming community with experiences that are engaging, entertaining, and unique.  We appreciate that the health of the board game industry comes from support and interest of the board gamer community, and if we can contribute experiences that the community enjoys, it strengthens and benefits the entire industry.  This in turn allows all gamers, including ourselves, to experience great new games from all over the industry. 

With that goal in mind, we found Kickstarter to be the perfect venue for financing our first tabletop release.  Ultimately, Troll Dice will succeed through support by the gaming community, so funding the production of the game through the community was a natural fit.

Risks and challenges

Any project for a small development team presents unique challenges. Securing artwork and design resources that meet our standards can be a time consuming and delay filled process, and a product rushed to the players can be filled with rule ambiguity and inconsistency. With that in mind we have restrained from launching our Kickstarter until the game was nearly ready for manufacturing.

We have been revising and fine tuning the Troll Dice rules for quite a while to provide players with a smooth, fun gaming experience. We have already pinned down much of the final artwork (aside from that which needs to be generated based on backer pledges) and had initial discussions with a reliable manufacturer to get time frames and expectations, as well as price quotes for different options we would like to consider for the final product.

We understand the importance of the players to the survival of the tabletop gaming community, a niche group we are all proud to be part of. As such, the community is our main focus. If you have any questions or concerns, opinions or complaints, we would love to hear from you, and in return, we will keep an open line of communication with backers about all steps on the process to bringing this, what we hope you will find to be very enjoyable, game to you.
