For those unfamiliar with Dice Throne, it very much lives up to its name, as your chosen hero (of which there are many to choose from now) has five unique dice to roll, and those rolls allow you to attack your foes and activate your character's unique abilities on any given turn.
You can choose from characters that range from Treants and Moon Elves to Gunslingers and Vampire Lords, and now you'll be able to throw Marvel heroes and villains into the mix. You can find the official description for Dice Throne below.
"A heart-pumping, fast-playing game of skilled card play and dice manipulation. The game is played over a series of rounds where you will be rolling your hero's dice up to 3 times. You will use the combination of dice symbols or numbers to activate your hero's abilities to attack your opponent(s).
Dice Throne is a game of intriguing dice, tactical card play, powerful heroes, and unique abilities.
It's a fast-paced 2-6 player combat game (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 2v2v2, or free-for-all). Select from a variety of heroes that play and feel completely distinct from one another. Attack opponents and activate abilities by rolling your hero's unique set of five dice. Accumulate combat points and spend them on cards that have a large range of effects, such as granting permanent hero upgrades, applying status effects, and manipulating dice directly (yours, your teammate's, or even your opponent's)."
