Greetings, mortal! You have ascended into
the divine realms, and here, among the celestial islands, your mettle
shall be tested with the utmost rigor. Only the mightiest heroes shall
pass all challenges and craft their own destiny, rising to become a
Dice Forge is a board game that challenges you to harness your powers and challenge other players in a battle for dominance. During the game, your
dice provide the resources you need, but throughout the game, you’ll
change your dice, snapping new faces on and improving your chances of
claiming victory. When the gods call an end to your contest, the player
with the most glory wins the game.
Every player begins the game with two
dice, and these dice are the primary way that you will gain more
resources—gold, sun shards, and moon shards.
At the beginning of the game, your dice are
weak, providing very small benefits. As the game goes on, however,
you’ll have the chance to improve your dice.
Two actions: Visiting the Temple and Accomplishing Heroic Deeds - are the heart of a game of Dice Forge.
On your turn, you’ll only be able to perform one of these actions, but
you can gain the power to perform an additional action by paying two sun
shards. In a game that only lasts nine or ten rounds, an additional
action can have a huge impact, so you’ll need to carefully weigh how to
spend your shards and your actions.
The capricious gods have granted you the right to
perform for their amusement, and perhaps, if you prove victorious, you
may even join them in the divine realm. Choose your destiny and craft
your dice in every game of Dice Forge!
