A fresh type of die will make its toy retail debut in a matter of months.

Dice+ will launch in August priced at £29.99, and will feature a point of sale-activated card system that also enables retailers to sell online games with it.

The product, which can be used to play digital board games on tablets, will come with free iOS/Android games. Consumers will also be able to download from a catalogue of 50 titles including ‘triple-A traditional board games’.

Dice+ was announced earlier this year.

“We will bring the product to market with all of the major board and game retailers, both national and independent,” said Steven May of Dice+.

“We are close to signing with our UK distributor. We have principle agreements with all of the key players across Europe, US and Australia. Now we are focusing on the wider distribution into consumer electronics and video games markets.”

Dice+ was shown off at the GDC in San Francisco earlier this year.
