Kickstarter has quickly grown to be an amazing platform that is filled with passionate individuals and teams who are looking for funds to help bring those passions from dream to reality. Each week here on House Of The Geeks we are going to take a look at one Kickstarter project we think more people should know about and hopefully even support.
I am a huge fan of push your luck dice games such as Zombie Dice and King Of Tokyo. To me, they strike a good balance of risk and reward and make a simple dice rolling game something that strategy along with luck play a part in.
A new campaign recently launched on Kickstarter has peaked my interest as it is a push your luck dice chucking game that has you trying to climb a mountain while avoiding the Yeti, the elements and the lack of oxygen.
The game is simple and involves throwing dice, saving the ones that you need and then either pushing ahead by throwing more dice or passing your turn. If you happen to bust on your turn you lose the results. The goal is to keep moving forward while managing your supply of oxygen and avoiding the traps, pitfalls and Yeti during the ascent.
Overall, Dicey Peaks looks to be an easy to learn and easy to play push your luck dice chucking game that I think will be great for families. The artwork is great and fits the theme of the game and at a cost of only 26 bucks to back is one of the more affordable Kickstarter board game campaigns that I have seen.
Find out how you can assemble your climbing gear and get to the mountain below. I’m ready to try my luck at scaling Dicey Peaks, are you?
