Grab Your Dice and Form a Tabletop Army with Dice Legions
Special RollvsEvil Charity Edition of the Popular Tabletop Game Coming from Creator Adam L. Dobbyns and Publisher VIA Modiphius
Modiphius Entertainment is excited to announce the upcoming release of Dice Legions, a streamlined fantasy-themed tabletop strategy game where your dice form your armies! Designed by Australian writer and game designer Adam L. Dobbyns, Dice Legions uses the dice you have at hand – from humble d4s to mighty d20s, to create tabletop fantasy armies and pit them against each other. Along with the full version of the game announced today, Modiphius has unveiled a “RollVsEvil Charity Edition” of the game in PDF format, sales of which will go to the RollVsEvil charity’s efforts in Ukraine.
Dice Legions’ epic adventures and conflicts are played on an open tabletop or on hand-drawn maps, where there is no grid or board. Dice representing heroes or whole units of Orcs, Dwarves, Cavalry, or terrifying monsters march and fight at your command!
Dice Legions offers players three scales of play to better adapt to the time and available space in a player’s daily life. “Skirmish” games are short, typically less than 30-minute, small area games. “Battle” scale games are larger games lasting around 90 minutes. “Legion” scale games are for clubs or dedicated wargame enthusiasts looking to devote the best part of a day to a major engagement.
However you choose to play, Dice Legions adheres to the same design philosophy afforded to it within the “dice as models” genre. That being, hobby gamers do not necessarily need large expensive armies of painted models to enjoy dramatic cinematic depictions of fantasy combat.
What started as a free-to-play game created by Adam L. Dobbyns during the Covid pandemic quickly attracted a huge amount of attention, “I was receiving 100-200 messages a day about the game from fans of the free version, and so I partnered with Modiphius to help me focus on creating content and let them get it out in front of the world,” said Adam.
The full physical retail edition of Dice Legions will arrive in retail and online stores this summer.
