We’re returning to the world of Dice Throne this week, and we’re playing the Seraph vs Vampire Lord! It’s a battle between the forces of darkness as the Vampire Lord attempts to steal your health and subdue you with glamour and the force of goodness that is the Seraph as just her being near you does damage to you with Holy Presence! If you’d like to hear our previous show where we dig into the ruleset more than strategy you can find the Cursed Pirate v Artificer show HERE.
We also taste Chateau d’Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé, a wonderful summertime wine that we regret not finding earlier in the year!
This week we finally picked up a copy of Dice Throne, the Cursed Pirate vs Artificer box! We played a few games we realized that a level 4 and level 6 heroes were probably not the best ones to learn with, but we persevered. The game plays similar to an old favorite of ours, Magic: The Gathering but with tokens and dice and some really fantastic art by Manny Trembley.
The coolest thing about Dice Throne (Follow them on Twitter @DiceThrone) is how you can combine all the decks together. Would you like to play Gunslinger vs Ninja, or Treant vs Pyromancer? Well, you can, all the characters are able to be played against each other or in teams. We’ve seen the Battle Chests, and for $99 getting all the fighters in one spot is a great deal. (No Amazon link in these notes, mainly because it’s got nothing but scalpers selling the Battle Chests at $200!)
We’re also tasting 19 Crimes Red Blend, you know that wine brand with Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart on the bottles? We picked this one because it’s aged in rum barrels and since there’s a pirate in the game, well, rum.
