Arena season 5 configuration

Post by Kallsup » 15 March 2021, 20:24

Hi!

With so many games alternating settings for the different arena seasons I think it's time for some variety for Dice Forge as well.
The game is the best with 4 players according to myself and many others, so my proposal is a 4 player season with "Exploit set: Random" and "Promotional cards: Yes".
What do you guys think? Please comment below! :mrgreen:

I would really enjoy 4 player Dice Forge in the Arena! I would certainly be IN! :D

Hopefully 2 player would also still be available for those who enjoy that variation, too.

I'm fine with both. 4p is more interesting IMO, but the game are also much longer than 2p games.
I don't like promo cards (if I want weird cards, I prefer playing with the expansions), but it's not a no-deal either. I find that the one that make every dice rotate is quite unfair in 4p, as what you get arbitrarily depends on your position in the turn order.

Sounds like a terrible idea. Not only does 4p make interaction and scarcity less important but there's also the issue with Boar being OP as hell in Arena mode. I don't know how you can even suggest Promo cards in a competitive mode. Nymph is another free-win card and Duck Magician will make your play dependent on someone else's decision making in the previous turns. If you get handed terrible dice, it wasn't your fault and there's nothing you can do about it.

Agreed, a bad idea. 4 player introduces all sorts of problems and opens up the possibility of kingmaking. Arena is a test of skill, and this is best measured heads-up.

Promo cards should also stay in Simple mode.

Yes please. I love Dice Forge but despise the 2 player version.
