Welcome to Mutation, a series of articles where we want to spotlight the “extras” that you can bring to Dice Masters. Why Mutation? Well, it represents a fundamental change in something. An evolution of sorts. Also, there is that nice Basic Action Card that shares the name. It seemed to make sense to connect these together to represent what this series is meant to be about.
We are always working on growing our collection of tutorials to help bring your game to the next level. Want to learn how to make your own cards? How about customizing your own play-mat? Looking for come cool dice tower projects? This is where you want to be.
If you have something you want to share with the Dice Masters community, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We look forward to sharing these projects with you. As always, please feel free to leave your comments below and let us know what you think.
Now, on to today’s project…

Dice Masters: Infinity War
OK… after seeing Infinity War, I knew I had to do something for Dice Masters. The movie was too good not to do this. This project came together relatively quick to be honest. It was actually based off of the suggestion of one of our local players. He had suggested that we roll a D6 and “something” happens that would relate to the Infinity Stones.
Basically, I took that idea and ran with it. The extra things that you will need to incorporate this into your game are:
- The Infinity Gauntlet BAC
- Infinity Stone Reference Cards
- 6 x D6 (or whatever value you want, as long as they are all the same and each is a different colour).
I created a new BAC, the Infinity Gauntlet which can either replace one of the existing 4 BAC’s or act as a 5th BAC. I would suggest trying it as a 5th because of its purchase cost. It is a full Crossover die, but you can use wild energy to buy it (unlike those pesky White Lanterns). The Gauntlet should be somewhat difficult to get, and that is why it has a specific energy cost.
Each Infinity Stone has a Reference Card outlining what its ability is. You should have a die of some value sitting on each card. All the values should be the same and each die should be a different colour (ideally a matching one to the Stone).
Once you purchase the Gauntlet and roll it on an action face, you will attach it to one of your characters. At the start of your turn, if you have a character who wields the Infinity Gauntlet, you may choose to roll all of the Infinity Stones. Which ever Stone has the highest roll is activated and you must complete its effect. Characters who wield the Infinity Gauntlet are immune to these effects.
The effects are thematic to each Stone, and can cause some significant changes to the fundamental rules of the game. The Space Stone allows characters to teleport from one location to another. The Mind Stone lets you take control of your Opponent’s characters. The Reality Stone lets you bend the rules of the game to allow you to do things that you would not normally be able to do. The Power Stone will increase the power of your troops. The Time Stone will let you “see the future” and make changes to achieve the outcome your desire. The Soul Stone… well… it will bring balance to the universe. Take a look at the cards below.
What are your thoughts? Have you tried the Infinity Gauntlet on for size? Did you bring balance to the cosmos? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
