I added a comment to the review. He made it sound like it was only a two-player game.

I saw that. Did he not see the "multiplayer rules" in the rule book?

I can see how he just overlooked it.

I've been away for a long time; my Dragon Diceā„¢ are gathering dust in a box in my closet, and I regret how much money I've spent on that game, which is too long and complicated (without offering enough panache in exchange, as other games like Arkham Horror do) to see any play in my social circle. But I've recently noticed Daemon Diceā„¢ for the first time, and I'm intrigued. One starter would be a relatively modest $20, and I played Chaos Progenitus a couple times, so I know it's quick and easy, which is magic for getting a game to see actual play.

How soon will SFR be publishing the three demon types which were announced but never created for CP? The biggest thing holding me back from trying Daemon Diceā„¢ is that it contains only Frost and Rot Fiends, both of which were plentiful in CP, so I'd essentially be buying dice that are already available to me. I'd be much more willing to spend that $20 if it was buying me dice of a type that have never been available before (IIRC, there were never any yellow dice and only one type of black dice).

Thanks for posting. I understand what you mean about getting a group into a game like DragonDice. That is why we released Daemon Diceā„¢ and are looking to release other stand alone products to appeal to the players who don't want a game with such a large time investment. Please be on the look out for these over the next year or two.

For your question: It depends on how quickly these sell. Since this is a relaunch we are going to release all the existing breeds first. If you notice we redesigned how the dice are packaged to make it easier to collect and get started. The starters contain just the 13 body parts and expansions will contain the items (probably with very different rules). We are also releasing the breeds individually. Thus you won't have to buy a pack to get 'one' of the breed want. All the dice in a package will be the same breed.

Also, many of the breed abilities have been modified from what they were in CP. Too many breeds were 'part specific', so they were changed to be more generic. Thus you don't have an ability that only affects the whip/tentacle.

We have discussed plans for a few missing breed color combinations and know what their abilities would be, but they are at the end of the product launch sequence. For now, please show the game to your friends using your existing dice. If they are interested, then they can purchase their own dice and thus support getting newer dice out quicker.

Finally a note that at this time we have no plans to rerelease the nobel house dice. While we may have Ivory colored daemons at some point in the future, it won't be that same concept.

If you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to post them!
