Racing Gets Dicey

BGB News - 3rd Week of January 2021


This week, AEG (best known for hit games like Mariposas, Calico, Tiny Towns and more) announced their first upcoming release of 2021: Cubitos. A racing game game of dice pool building and push-your-luck, there are already review videos out now from Tantrum House and The Dice Tower. Here's a more full description of the game from the AEG website:


"Players take on the role of participants in the annual Cube Cup; a race of strategy and luck to determine the Cubitos Champion. Each player has a runner on the racetrack and a support team, represented by all the dice you roll. Each turn you roll dice and use their results to move along the racetrack, buy new dice, and use abilities. But you must be careful not to push your luck rolling too much or you could bust!"
Get ready to race with the wackiest group of characters to ever tie on some running shoes! And with four tracks to choose from, and multiple variants of each character, there are countless ways to play.


The game is designed for 2 - 4 players and play in about 30 - 60 minutes. It is set to have a retail release on February 19th which you can sign up to be notified of via the AEG mailing list here.
