Game of Dice is back with a vengeance (and a winter update)

Winter is officially upon us, and with it comes Joycity’s brand new winter update for its smash hit game – Game of Dice.

For those of you who’re new to the game, Game of Dice is the thrilling and super competitive virtual board game that sees you play solo or against your mates, to be named the most powerful property tycoon in the game.

While the game is already a huge success, the newest winter update looks set to be the best version yet, and is crammed full of cool (see what we did there) new features.

Explore the brand new 1:1 Crystal Village map, and take on your competitors in an intense battle to activate the glacial crystal – letting you ramp up your tolls and bankrupt your opponents. But players beware, because with new brand updates come brand new challenges.

Keep your eyes peeled for the frozen city blocks that’re dotted about the board, because landing on one of these bad boys could be your downfall. If you’re unlucky enough to step on one of these slippery squares, you’ll get just 1 more chance to roll the dice before all your properties are frozen stiff – making them impossible for you to collect your tolls.

But the fun doesn’t end there, as there’s a brand new character to play as too. Introduce yourself to “Wintery-M…

Ubisoft’s new social quiz game FaceUp – The Selfie Game released

Gaming is often at its best when it takesa simple premise, but executes it perfectly. Ubisoft’s new social quiz game FaceUp takes this very approach by looking to use your selfies in a gaming format.

The developers made this one with gamers in mind due to its charades-styled guess work. Online and offline, selfie takers can do battle with each other, as you attempt to guess the other person’s expression.

FaceUp tasks you with correctly identifying their friend’s mood or expression – with options ranging from politicians, boxers right up to fish and even spies.

If you wish to gloat about your razor sharp detection skills, the game provides support through social media avenues – ensuring you’ll be the talk of the town amongst your group of friends.

It’s harder than it sounds to guess correctly though, meaning the unlockable incentives like new stickers and extra modes are even more rewarding when you manage to get a face spot on.

While gaming is no stranger to merging itself with social media in recent years, few are as tightly stitched together as FaceUp – The Selfie Game. It embraces gaming just as closely as it embraces social media – as evidenced by the extra options such as the combo mode that tasks you with combining two facial expressions.

The women of King of Fighters get involved in Game of Dice’s brand new update

Following up on their recent King of Fighters update, JoyCity has brought two more surprise additions from the Japanese arcade fighter to the world of Game of Dice, the anime board game where it isn’t fists that are thrown, but dice.

For those of you who haven’t yet played it, Game of Dice is a fun filled multi player and single player board game style app with a pretty straightforward premise – roll the dice, buy up the board and send your opponents to the poor house. If it sounds a little bit like Monopoly, you wouldn’t be far wrong.

 

But this is no game of chance; you’ll need to use strategy to win – playing with a deck stacked with skills, items and characters.

After receiving two new character additions in the form of Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami from The King of Fighters franchise earlier in the month, JoyCity have brought out a new limited addition deck that also introduces two of the most popular women in the franchise – Mai Shiranui and Athena Asamiya. What’s more, whenever these two dangerous ladies get drawn from your deck, you’ll receive1 million gold.

On top of that, after purchasing the pack you could be just one of 5 lucky people to win a KOF XIV voucher code for the PS4 courtesy of a special event being held by JoyCity. A further 20…
