Every adventurer has a story to tell. In Roll Player, you get to start at the beginning and craft a hero for the ages, one die roll at a time.

Each turn you will place dice into a character board to shape your characters basic traits like strength, intelligence and dexterity. With luck and cunning, these decisions will help you meet the goals of your class and alignment or leave you with enough gold to buy some amazing equipment at the market.

If you love rpgs, there's a lot to love about Roll Player. 

But even if you can't tell an orc from an elf or a scimitar from a Bohemian earspoon, Roll Player is a game that could still speak to you

Part puzzle, part press your luck dice game, there are challenging and fun decisions to make every turn.

Listen in to learn for an in-depth look at the game and discover why it has earned the Spiel of Approval Award!

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
