Dice Masters Keyword Clarification

Postby dmrulesteam » Wed Oct 04, 2017 4:15 pm

Dice Masters fans!

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep card wording and interactions streamlined, we’re issuing a number of clarifications regarding keywords. First, there is no change to how these cards work on their own – we’re simply trying to make things more understandable.

For example, Overcrush didn’t exist as a keyword when Doctor Octopus: Fully Armed and Horn of the Unicorn: Basic Action Card were originally printed. It’s easier for players to know that rules questions involving those cards should work exactly the same as cards with Overcrush since it’s the same effect.

It’s true that some other cards may interact a little differently with these cards as a result, but those interactions are few and far between compared to the help this gives to players getting started out in Dice Masters.

If you scroll down you’ll see the cards this applies to, what set they’re from, and what their new text is. This new text completely replace the old text. We'll edit this post if there are typos or addenda.

Until next time, keep on rolling!
