So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

Dice Miner Deluxe – plus a $10 shipping credit! 🚀🚀🎉 And, the Deluxe Backer Pack from the campaign!

Shipping discount note 😁

A quick note before we get started – if Dice Miner is in your cart when you check out, you can use the coupon code DICEMINERFREESHIP to get $10 off of your shipping total! I’m doing this because I would REALLY like to sell this one for less than $49… but that was the KS price and well… I don’t undercut Kickstarter campaign prices because that wouldn’t be fair to the original backers. But, since I really like to offer sweet deals… I figure tossing in a shipping credit couldn’t hurt. 😉

Frankie LaFave is BACK!

My friends… it is my pleasure to offer another SOLID game write-up by none other than the indefatigable Frankie LaFave! Aside from having boundless capability and energy, Frankie is a good friend and a wonderful human. PLUS he is one of the cast members of the incredibly entertaining SuperBoardSunday board game podcast… so I mean… like yeah… he’s LEGIT!

Side note – if you’d like to check out the antics of the fab-four crew over at SuperBoardSunday, you can do so HERE on podbean.

Stop on in and see what Brian, Christian, Frankie and Jim are up to. You might just find yourself stopping back in for your weekly fix…. 😁❤️

I actually met everyone (except Brian who was away attending a wedding) in New Hampshire recently when I drove up to take part in their sweet Cabin Con event! A full weekend of endless gaming, food, beer, laughs, and FUN!  Although many of us had been chatting online and playing some virtual games on BGA… we had never met prior to the event!

Fortunately, rather than waking up in a bathtub filled with ice and a fresh scar over my left kidney, I met some of the nicest, coolest humans you could imagine! Everyone from the show and all of their friends were SOLID people through and through. Such a great time.. and thank you again for allowing me to partake, team!

OK… OK.. I’m getting all verklempt. <wipes eyes with tissue>

So.. without further ado… Dice Miner!

Dwarven Mining Checklist:

Pickaxes for cave-ins ✔

Treasure chests for gathering gems ✔

Shields for dragon attacks ✔

Beer ???

Dice Miner has 2 to 4 players taking on the role of various dwarves mining their way back into the mountain they call home by way of drafting dice. The mountain slope is filled with dice, and players take turns drafting cave-ins, gems and the one thing dwarves cherish most; beer!! Most dice are kept in your dice pool, but just like in real life, in Dice Miner, beer is meant to be shared.


My generosity of sharing beer die lets me draft two dice…and I don’t have to stick to the peaks!! Thankfully there are magic dice which allow you to re-roll at the end of drafting. Now you can address hazards you may not have answers for… or maybe you’re looking to have more gems than Mrs. Sure-Has-A-Lotta-Pickaxes over there. 😉 Not only do the dice rack up points this round, but, they will carry over to future rounds!

So what’s the Kickstarter version of Dice Miner get you??

Sure…you could re-roll dice onto the table with your grubby, bare hands. Wouldn’t you rather have an embossed leather wrapped cup?? Why would you want boring, opaque dice when you could have translucent, sparkly dice?? The pièce de résistance is the plastic molded mountain that holds the dice for drafting!! The base game comes with a cardboard mountain that you need to assemble. No assembly needed here! The chef’s kiss to all this awesomeness is the box itself. There’s amazing dwarven stronghold art wrapped around the gold-embossed box with magnetic closures!! Soooo nice!

Grab your copy!! Grab some friends!! Grab some beers!! Cheers to your fellow dwarven miners and grab those gems and pickaxes right out from under them!

Dice Miner Deluxe with (Deluxe Backer Pack) Kickstarter Edition by Atlas Games! Dice rolling festival commence!! 🏔

The Dwarves once lived beneath three mighty mountains. After centuries of war they defeated their age-old enemies the Dragons. Moving to the surface, the Dwarves built magnificent cities and won renown for their heartening beer.

But the Dragons have returned. Now, the Dwarves must remember their roots, clear old tunnels, and return to ancient caverns while fighting their primeval foes.

In each of three rounds, custom dice are rolled onto the mountain. You are a Dwarf hero, drafting dice for your hoard. Scores are tallied after each round before you re-roll your dice and the mountain is refilled.

Ultimately, Dice Miner is a game about drafting the dice you covet, adding them to your hoard, and pushing your luck to build massive combos and score as many points as you can.
