White Wizard, best known for their deck-building games Star Realms and Hero Realms, have announced at the Essen Spiel game fair that they signed KAPOW!, a superhero game with buildable dice.
“We saw KAPOW! at Boston Festival of Indie Games, and we saw so much potential in this game. Many players were demoing Kapow! and immediately buying the game, which is a similar experience we have with our games” said Rob Dougherty, CEO of White Wizard Games. “KAPOW! is super fun, easy to learn, and also has great strategy and tons of replayability, so it is a natural fit for our portfolio of games.”
“We are super excited to be working with White Wizard Games! The three of us are thrilled to know that Kapow! will reach a much bigger audience around the world and that the game universe will continue to expand and grow. Stay tuned for more heroic action!” Said Doug Hettrick co-designer of Kapow! from 2 Ton Porcupine.
With each roll, you decide how to attack, defend, and power up your character by choosing where to place your dice. The battles get more explosive with each roll and as you gain more dice and dice faces. KAPOW! is simple to learn (roll and place), but has layers of strategy as you customize your dice pool and leverage the unique powers of the KAPOW! universe’s heroes and villains (see the crew below!).
White Wizard will be reprinting the game starting in 2020 and plans to expand the line with more superheroes by partnering with 2 Ton Porcupine, the team behind KAPOW!. You can learn more by visiting White Wizard Games at whitewizardgames.com.
