Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Rolling Empires

Recently, fellow Geek-o-Rama staffer Scott and I had a chance to sit down with our friends at Fongomongo Games to look at their new dice building game, Rolling Empires.

In Rolling Empires, players each take control of one of six different races.  Each race has its own semi-unique set of dice representing different classes within that race.  There are standard resource dice, and several different types of character dice of varying cost and power.

You can use combinations of magic and your starting resource dice to buy cards for points, more dice to expand your options, or to take control of an area on the board. With multiple ways to earn points, the tide of victory can shift quickly and fiercely.

Press Release: Kaiju Epic! Kickstarter

Readers will find monsters they may have heard of, like the Kraken or even Quetzalcoatl, roaming the pages of Kaiju Epic!, but there will also be all-new monsters created just for this series.

Kaiju Epic! will be a 5 volume series each with two separate stories. These stories will take place on opposite ends of the globe and give a real feeling of the end of the world, rather than the destruction of a specific city...
