Dice Masters Tournament Rules Update

July 21, 2014

Wizkids has announced a much-needed update to the tournament rules for Dice Masters.

Those of you who played in the first month of official Wizkids Marvel Dice Masters tournaments are likely well aware that the published tournament rules were lacking clarity in a fairly substantial fashion. Under the theory of “better late than never”, Wizkids has just published a new tournament rules document (download it here) that now matches much of what we expect in a tournament. In particular:

– 3 points for a Match Win or Bye

– 1 point for a Draw

– 0 points for a Loss

– A sensible end-of-match procedure when time in the round expires (take 5 additional turns, if there is no winner at the end of those 5 turns, the winner is who has the most life; if life is a tie, then the game is a draw.)

We will be re-scoring the first month of the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline event so that those match points are consistent with these new rules.

Gordon L.

Gordon, a.k.a. "the" Barrister, or simply "G", opened the first Board Game Barrister store in 2005 in a fit of delusion: that he could both finish up law school and start a retail business - one has worked out, the other less so. Gordon loves working in the toy industry, which is filled with wonderful people who love what they do; he loves working with his fellow Barristers; and he loves the community of people that has grown around the playing of games together at the Board Game Barrister stores. If Gordon were a Dungeons & Dragons character, he would be a lawful goody-two-shoes silicon wizard with a skills in perl and complex compound sentences. Gordon loves many games, but when forced to choose he went with China, Power Grid, Lost Cities, and Empire Builder.
