The tabletop gaming specialist, Alley Cat Games, is preparing to take to Kickstarter to launch a new board game centred on creating and running your own park of fairground attractions. Called Dice Theme Park, the game will put players in the role of theme park manager with one goal – to get as many customers on your rides as possible.
Designed by: Daryl Andrews and Adrian Adamescu with lead development by the Dice Hospital co-designer: Mike Nudd, Dice Theme Park has been billed as the spiritual successor to Alley Cat Games’ smash hit, Dice Hospital.
A description of the game on Alley Cat Games’ launch site, reads: The dice in the game represent the theme park customers, with hex tiles representing the rides in each player’s park. Employing a unique “Dice-cascade” mechanic once a customer has enjoyed a ride, their dice value is reduced, but they can still continue to enjoy more rides in the theme park until their value drops to 0 where they exit.
This means the more efficiently you can move your dice around to activate the most rewarding rides, the more points and money you receive.
“Dice Theme Park is more interactive and slightly more complex than Dice Hospital, so it’s perfect for those looking for a more involved tabletop experience,” said Alley Cat Games. “With more ways to score and play, whilst keeping that same engaging and satisfying feel, Dice Theme Park will have you visiting its attractions for years to come.”
