Hello, welcome everybody, to the November 1st MoDFiles update. This is a monthly look back & look forward to Ministry of Dice and Dice Masters community news for the most discerning of Dice Masters fan.
It’s been another SUPER busy month in the world of Dice Masters – we’ve got the “headlines & highlights” section to draw your attention to a few key news items & events. We’ve also got our “MoDTube Round Up” which puts a spotlight on some videos of interest on our YouTube channel for the more casual viewer.
And don’t forget the “Draw & Roll Comic Strip” – a monthly humorous look at the game of Dice Masters. Stu.ART is our resident artist, but he’s taking a break for a little while so Andy’s subbing in. His work on this month’s strip is… interesting.
Let’s get into it…
Headlines & Highlights
Dice Masters Vs Cancer Charity Event
We are holding a Charity fundraising event on 28th November called “Dice Masters Vs Cancer”.
If you’ve followed us for awhile then you’ll likely know that The Ministry of Dice supports the “Gaming vs Cancer” initiative – a charity organisation that brings tabletop gamers together to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The f2f event can’t take place this year BUT the resourcefulness of the Dice Masters community with online play means we can still make some small contribution this year by holding the event online.
Check out all the details here: Dice Masters Vs Cancer Information
Avengers Infinity Gauntlet Arrives on UK Shores!
Some good news for UK based players! Asmodee (the UK tabletop gaming distributor) has finally got Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers Infinity Gauntlet on it’s new release sheet and is available for sale in the UK WC 2nd November.
It’s been a looooong, frustrating wait, but its with us now and we’re excited to see it land on our shores.
Time to start the Super Rare Thor chase!
Here’s the link to the Asmodee New Release page: Asmodee new releases.
Marvel Dice Masters: Dark Phoenix Saga North American Release
The next set in the release schedule is the Dark Phoenix Saga and is listed for a North American release on December 2nd on the Wizkids solicits page. (Yes, it’s gone back a little)
No word on UK & Europe, however, it is also listed on a few retailer sites in the UK as the 25th November, so keep your fingers crossed European Dice Masters fans.
I mean… we’ll believe it when we see it, but there’s always hope.
2021 Dice Masters Release News
Right at the back end of September the Alliance Distribution Online Open house event took place. Wizkids were one of the keynote speakers and during their section they dropped some 2021 release info news for Dice Masters that were super exciting.
Our contact at the event got us all the hot info as it was happening, and you can find all the info we have so far on the 2021 sets here: Breaking News – Wizkids Releasing New Dice Masters Sets in 2021
Keep an eye out on the MoD Youtube channel for more soon 😉
Launch of MoDXtra
October marked the launch of the MoD’s latest endeavour: MoDXtra. This is a second YouTube channel where we will now be posting our non-Dice Masters related content.
Long story short: we have been getting messages for sometime now asking for more content that is adjacent to, but not directly, Dice Masters after some tangents we took on the MoD podcast. As a result we decided to compartmentalise the new stuff and create “MoDXtra” as a place that – while still us – keeps the Dice Masters stuff in its own special place.
We have so much fun making online content we hope that some of the new stuff on the new channel may be of interest. At present it includes a bi-weekly VodCast (which we believe fans of the MoD podcast will enjoy), comic book nostalgia from Chris, and some Console gaming clips. It’s early days, but we would love ask you to consider subscribing.
The new channel is in 2 parts. For vids go to our YouTube here:
For live game streaming that’s not Dice Masters go to Twitch here:
Please do consider checking them out – we’d really appreciate the support. 🙂
The Draw & Roll Comic Strip
It’s the latest instalment of the Draw & Roll Comic Strip to (hopefully) give you a giggle. Stu.ART is taking a break on these for a little while so this special piece of work comes from our very own Andy (aka “The Picasso of Southampton”)
I’m sure you’ll all agree: Stu.ART may have to consider his future as our resident Clear & Draw Comic Strip artist when he sees this artistic effort from Andy…
MoDTube Round Up
Here’s a run down of some Ministry of Dice YouTube channel highlights we’d like to put in front of you… (Click the thumbnails to be taken straight to the vid)
One of our more popular videos last month was a look at the new Loyalty Token mechanic coming in the Dark Phoenix Saga set – including a first look preview at some new cards with Loyalty Token game text
In preparation for Dice Masters Vs Cancer we kicked off a series of Live Stream games using Golden Single Affiliation teams. There’s been a few so far, but this is a fave because Andy played a 5 card team!
A quick, cheeky cross promote – here’s the first episode of the MoDXtra Vodcast mentioned in the new above. We’re really proud of it for a first ep – check it out.
It’s been a long time coming, but we finally got around to the second part of our Dice Masters Affiliation reviews. In this part: The Avengers
And that’s just the highlights! We’ve posted a ton more than this and would highly recommend you subscribe to the channel to never miss out on our vids.
