DICE+ Review

/ Nov 15th, 2013 No Comments

Dice+ Review

Game Technologies first showed of DICE+ at Gamescom and has now made the gaming device available for purchase. The unit is a cube noticeably larger than a regular set of dice that will connect to an iPad or Android tablet via Bluetooth. The piece of hardware is accompanied by digital board games to offer a unique spin on party gaming.

What is DICE+?

The concept is certainly new and for those that haven’t seen DICE+ just yet, it’s suggested you watch their teaser video at the bottom of this section. It is billed as a “universal board game controller” that is made for your tablet. It offers much more than just throwing it to see which of the six sides ends up on top as it also has a proximity sensor and an accelerometer built-in. The unit retails for $39.99 and is sold online from the Game Technologies website (dicepl.us). Think of it as a giant die (note that the singular form of dice is die) that allows you to interact with board games on your tablet in a creative new way.
 

Installation and Setup

Setting up DICE+ is extremely easy. Simple charge the unit with a USB powered port and follow the instructions to connect it to your tablet via Bluetooth. Once you have connected it once, the DICE+ will be recognized every time it is turned on automatically by your tablet. The game controller also comes with six board games with others available in the App Store. Installing the DICE+ and the games it came with might take a gamer five minutes, tops, not counting any charge time.

Fun Factor

Gamers who like to participate in party games or just have a “family fun night” would do well by checking out DICE+ because it is full of novel fun. The board games use the DICE+ unit extremely creatively and although there may not be a whole lot of fun had by yourself, the games are incredibly fun when in a group of four. The board games tend to be wacky and well diverse for gamers of all ages, so if you have players in the range of six to ten years of age, it would be a perfect opportunity to bond with them for a night of interactive games. If there aren’t younger gamers in your life, most of the board games are absolutely a ton of fun to play.
 

A Review of the Dice+ Game Controller for Tablets

A Review of the Dice+ Game Controller for Tablets

The Games

There are plenty of great games offered that leverage the DICE+ unit. Gamers should just look for the “Powered Board Games” app within the Apple App Store to find all the ones that can be played with the DICE+ unit. Some of the games are standard classics, like Backgammon, while others are hilarious games that engage players with both the DICE+ and the tablet’s screen, like in Rumble Stumble. While there are only six games now, many more are headed for release in 2014.

The Potential

One aspect of DICE+ that gamers should consider is the potential the unit has for more games down the road. A game like “DICE+ Adventure” has been announced and will be an RPG board game for 2-4 players. The potential for D&D adventures like the ones some gamers had back in the day could really see for some amazing experiences, especially if remote play is also enabled.

Overall Impression

The DICE+ game controller is an innovative and intelligent device that all family and social gamers should invest in. The cost is pretty inexpensive and the unit comes with six games out-of-the-box with more on the way. It’s perfect for families looking to bond while engaging in the 21st century version of board game night.

DICE+ REVIEW

Gaming Illustrated RATING

Overall85%

PRICE POINT9

At a retail cost of $39.99 the DICE+ is very well priced considering gamers will get the unit itself plus six games right away with more on the way. Considering the hours that are likely to be put in, it seems reasonably priced.

LASTING FACTOR8

It will all be on the games to determine if DICE+ has any lasting value. There's a TON of potential here, really. The games that are available now are pretty good but there's so much more that can be done. Hopefully, there's years of shelf life for DICE+ moving into the future.

FUN FACTOR8.5

The DICE+ is fun for families, especially ones with kids who want to play games but might get bored without a little interaction. The games are good but there are only six at this point. There is definitely a cool factor consider here.
