Asmodee has added several new board game titles to its already impressive list of forthcoming releases (see “Asmodee Winter 2015 Round-Up and “Martin Wallace's 'Onward to Venus' and 'Mythotopia'”): Nations: Dice, Elysium, Formula D Expansion 6, and Room-25: Season 2.

Nations: Dice is a dice-driven variant of the civilization-building game Nations (see “Asmodee Delivers 'Nations' to America”).  Players still compete to build the mightiest and most successful civilization, but in this variant, available buildings and resources are defined by the players’ dice pool.  Advisors, colonies and wonders give points and chips that may be exchanged for re-rolls or resources once per turn. 

The box contains 33 chits, 44 6-sided dice, 1 4-sided die, 8 wooden player markers, 12 event tiles, 60 progress tiles, 4 player order/overview cards, 4 player boards, a score board, a progress board and a rulebook. The game is for 1-4 players, and plays in 10-15 minutes per player.  MSRP is $49.99. The game releases in March.
