• Dice Masters Takes its Place Among the Best

    We know that people like Dice Masters, but we've never known quite how much. Now, thanks to an article from Critical Blast, we have some idea. Namely: They like it A LOT.

    How much?

    Diamond Distributor said that Age of Ultron boosters outsold MTG Origins boosters in a released table of information from July. Dice Masters took three of the top ten spots.

    WOW.

    Want some more? ICV2 shows Dice Masters at #5, behind only Clix, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Magic on a chart of top-selling competitive games.

    The Critical Blast article goes on to detail the community (including a little tip of the hat to all of us here at TRP), and it's definitely worth a read.

    Roll on!

      The article I linked was posted earlier this week and was just shared on Facebook overnight last night.

      Oh I see, by "this" you meant about the fact that DM was in top 5 for competitive games. The article that Dave brought up first though is new this week and mentions how DM was the number one sold product from Diamond Distributors this month. Piling it Higher and deeper sure, but one article on how well DM is doing is one thing, this post is to bring a spotlight on how two different outlets, and two different sources of numbers show DM slowly advancing to the top of the list of collectable games, and even showing that in a good month it beats out Magic's stead pace.

      Keep bringing us good news like this though, we love it when folks bring stuff like this to our attention. We might not front page about it every time, but we DEFINITELY rant and rave on the forums or amongst ourselves.

      I see now lol I did not see the article link on my mobile. I seen it when I got on my laptop though. I was just going off the old picture and icv2. I would see it beating clix. But magic and yugioh I'm not sure but would love for it to.

      This may be a dumb question, but doesn't Wizards of the Coast have multiple distributors, while WizKids is exclusive to Diamond/Alliance? Meaning that they only "beat" WotC in this particular channel. Either way it's good to see the game is growing, although I'm not seeing it on the tournament attendance side of things.

      Thank you for picking up on the article.

      I can't claim to be a regular because a busy schedule prevents me from spending a lot of time on the boards.

      I realize the information was posted a while back, but I wanted to collect additional data from a second source. I also hoped to get a quote from Dave regarding the community here, but my request via the contact form was never responded to.

      I plan to continue covering Dice Masters for Critical Blast for our 'games' section. Hopefully, as a separate news outlet, we can bring more attention to the game we all love.

      I never received it. Wish that I had! In the future, Dave@thereservepool.com is the most reliable.
