Dice Hate Me Games

Issue #16: Truckin' Right Along

Alright Dice Hate Me Games fans, it's time to load up and put the hammer down, 'cause we've got another great game headed your way! We're proud to announce that game designer Jason Kotarski will be joining the DHMG family with his crafty cubes and cards game, The Great Heartland Hauling Co.

In The Great Heartland Hauling Co. players take on the role of medium haul Midwest truck drivers doing their best to make a living by hauling goods for big suppliers. Players truck to various locations around America's Heartland, picking up and dropping off goods using matching cards from their hands. Most locations have native goods that require fewer cards to load; other locations may pay a premium for those goods but may also require more fuel - and time - to get there with the cargo. With limited space in each trailer and only five cards in hand at a time, players will have to expertly manage their resources, as well as play the odds and press their luck to be the best trucker on the road.

We'll be sharing a lot more about Heartland in the next few weeks as we ramp up for a late july Kickstarter campaign. We have a lot of cool art to show off, more game play to dig into and the story of how Jason came up with the game - and how we met Jason. Stay tuned, it's going to be an exciting summer!

Coming Fast & Furious!

Up above, we claimed an exciting summer from Dice Hate Me Games, and we aim to deliver. The Great Heartland Hauling Co. isn't the only one of our games headed to Kickstarter in a few weeks - we're also kicking the tires and painting the pinstripes on Soapbox Derby! This campaign is going to be as fast and furious as the card game itself. We'll be sharing a lot more about the campaign - plus the game and its special multimedia component - over the next few weeks.

Hot Java

A few of you got a sneak peek at one of the sweet advance copies of VivaJava at Origins, but for those who missed out - or missed the latest Kickstarter update - here's a link to some picture-laden caffeinated goodness. Designer T.C. Petty III got a chance to open the finished box for the first time, and he could swear he smelled coffee brewing! We'll be sure to keep all of you updated on the release of VivaJava as its late-summer arrival from overseas grows nearer.
