Rainbow Draft Weekend Announcement

By Lee

S

Recently, we announced a special Dice Masters Rainbow Draft Organized Play event, in which we are inviting stores to help us showcase a new and fun event in their stores, and give their customers a chance to win some unique prizes. A large number have already set up their event in the Wizkids Event System (WES) and we’re hearing from some that attendance may exceed what they are currently allocated and would like more access to kits. Please let your Alliance sales rep know and we will review on a case-by-case basis.

We recognize that this event is not for every retailer and we aimed broadly as Rainbow Draft is a unique experience and we wanted to invite more stores that may otherwise not qualify for our other special events, a chance to participate. We have also been receiving inquiries from stores that were not selected for this event, but are interested in hosting future events. Please note that all stores should have received an email if they qualified. Additionally, sales reps will be completing confirmation calls by Sept 5th for qualifying stores. If your store turns out not to be invited to Rainbow Draft Weekend, but you would …read more

Star Trek: Frontiers Board Game – Coming Soon from WizKids

HILLSIDE, NJ – August 14, 2015 – WizKids, maker of quality board games and miniatures, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Star Trek: Frontiers. Designed by Andrew Parks, Star Trek: Frontiers puts a new spin on the bestselling board game Mage Knight, by Vlaada Chvátil.

“Like the Mage Knight board game, Star Trek: Frontiers allows players to explore areas that are new and different each time they play. I can’t wait for Star Trek fans to start commanding their Federation and Klingon ships as they encounter Romulan Warbirds, send carefully chosen away teams down to unknown planets, and challenge the might of the Borg,” said Frontiers game designer, Andrew Parks.

“The Star Trek universe opens up a huge variety of thematic options for a designer, and I specifically hope fans of Star Trek will enjoy the work that Andrew has done to bring the system to the world of Star Trek,” said Vlaada Chvátil, creator of the original Mage Knight.

Similar to Mage Knight, in Star Trek: Frontiers, players will follow multiple scenarios leading them on a journey into the unknown. They will earn Experience Points and further their Reputation as …read more
