Big news, everyone! New Dice Masters entries were added to Wizkids’ Solicits page (which can be found here). Three items were added.
All of the following is currently scheduled for release in September 2018.
- Justice Campaign Box.From the name, we can definitely expect some new Justice League characters, something which I was hoping to see since DC released their recent movie. As it’s a Campaign Box, we can reasonably expect 48 character cards (16 characters, 3 versions each), matching dice, and 10 basic action cards. The box should hold over 300 dice, which will be convenient storage for the new Team Packs they’re announcing too.
- Doom Patrol Team Pack
I’ll admit I know little about the Doom Patrol. But I’ve been seeing them mentioned repeatedly as characters we’ve been missing from Dice Masters. I’ll certainly be looking forward to discovering Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, Mento and the rest of the team.
- Mystics Team Pack
Here’s an interesting twist. We have certainly seen some mystics in previous sets, but outside of Zatanna, the only characters with the Mystics affiliation have all come from Marvel. Will we finally see Dr. Fate in Dice Masters? How about a (non-lantern) Spectre? Phantom Stranger? The possibilities are mind-boggling.
Team Packs typically have 8 characters, with 2 dice and 3 cards per character, so this is likely what we can expect from both Team Packs.
We currently have limited information about these sets. We’ll update this article as more information becomes available. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: ICV2 has now posted an article on the subject, which you can find here. From this article, we know the following:
On the Campaign Box: it will include 15 characters (and presumably one non-basic action, based on the size of a campaign box), featuring the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, including:
- Wonder Woman
- Lex Luthor
The Doom Patrol Team Pack will include, among others:
- Plastic Man (yay!)
The Mystics Team Pack will include:
- Captain Marvel Jr.
- Mary Marvel
- Black Adam
As previously speculated, the Team Packs will each come with 24 cards and 16 dice.
I, for one, am now very excited for this. What are your thoughts? Feel free to discuss in the comments below!
