Regicide is a cooperative, fantasy card game for 1 to 4 players, played using a standard deck of cards.
Players work together to defeat 12 powerful enemies. On their turn a player plays a card to the table to attack the enemy and once enough damage is dealt, the enemy is defeated. The players win when the last King is defeated. But beware! Each turn the enemy strikes back. Players will discard cards to satisfy the damage and if they can't discard enough, everyone loses.
Rich with tactical decisions and a deep heuristic tree, Regicide is a huge challenge for anyone who is brave enough to take it on.
Note that the game received a Dice Tower Seal of Approval, which should tickle your curiosity.

But WAIT, there's more:
The publisher Badgers from Mars is also providing a second game : REGIDICE.
It's not just a joke about an anagram. It's also... a self-parody on the original game, published as an April Fool's joke.
Regidice was born when Luke Badger accidentally typed Regidice instead of Regicide. 24 hours later, Paul had given birth to the dice-based beast you see before you. Regidice was announced April 1st, 2021... Yes, April 1st...
You can however also play it on Board Game Arena. Yes.

We would like to thanks the Badgers from Mars publishing team, as well as the game designers, Paul Abrahams, Luke Badger & Andy Richdale.
Nothing would have been possible without the work done by ufm who developed these games for our platform. Kudos to him for this tour de force.
That's it for today, two released titles, and one to joke about.
See you next week for another amazing release. Or two.
Until then, take care and play fair!
