Cubicle 7 is working on a dice game based on the hugely popular “Doctor Who” sci-fi television show. Dalek Dice is a stand-alone strategy game from the point of view of the exterminating extraterrestrial cyborgs.
As would be expected, it seems that the goal of the game is to kill all the humans. The way to win is to kill more humans than your opponents. And, apparently, you have to watch out for the Doctor because “he has a way of foiling your plans.”
The game was designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, who created the One Ring role-playing game and the Hobbit Tales card game. The game is scheduled to launch this June for $15.

Cubicle 7 has a Kickstarter campaign up and running for Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf – the Lone Wolf Adventure Game.
Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf gamebooks introduced a generation to fantasy gaming – now, in Lone Wolf’s 30th Anniversary year, the legend continues with the Lone Wolf Adventure Game. Epic quests, thrilling combat, and a world of dangerous adventure lie ahead!
Our goal is to produce a game accessible to new and younger gamers – the perfect first roleplaying game – that develops and grows as the players progress. The advanced options in the boxed set, and the richly detailed supplements, will deliver a depth of gameplay that we’re sure will satisfy more experienced gamers.
You’ll explore the wonderous world of Magnamund, a setting that has been brought to life over more than 30 years of development. From fertile Sommerlund to the arid deserts of Vassagonia, the foetid depths of the Danarg swamp to the despoiled wasteland of the Darklands, an evocative and fully realised world of classic fantasy adventure awaits you.

Hobbit Tales , from Cubicle 7, is a story-telling game based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
In the game, the players take turns as a narrator using adventure cards as prompts. Meanwhile, the other players dispense hazard cards to derail the narrator’s adventure. Both sets of cards feature quotes and illustrations related to elements of Tolkien’s stories. Terrain icons limit when hazards can be played. And a feat die is used to determine the success of a played hazard.
In Hobbit Tales players are Hobbits telling tales in front of a mug of beer at their favourite inn in the Shire. Silent woods and remote mountains, Elves, Goblins and Giants populate their stories.
During the game, players take turns as the Narrator and improvise a story using a hand of illustrated cards. The other players try to twist the tale, playing hazards and fearsome monsters. Drinks are served, smoke-rings are blown, and the best narrator is cheered by everyone present.
Hobbit Tales is a game for 2 to 5 Hobbits, authored by the award-winning designers Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, creators of the Tolkien-themed War of the Ring strategy game and The One Ring role-playing game.
The Hobbit Tales rule book also contains advice on using adventure cards to develop adventure hooks and simulate a journeys in Cubicle 7?s The One Ring roleplaying game.

Cubicle 7 has a Kickstarter campaign running in order to fund Cthulhu Britannica: London, a Cthulhu RPG box set.
We want to make the ultimate boxed setting for 1920s London for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. Beautiful artwork to inspire you, gorgeous maps to lose yourself in, evocative tomes on the city and its Mythos secrets to terrify, enthral, and immerse you in the glamour and smog of the capital of the Empire.
This is a project that has been years in the making, and has attracted a huge amount of support from the community, with the biggest stumbling point is that smaller-volume print runs of boxed sets just don’t work financially. Kickstarter gives us the chance to overcome that hurdle and bring you the ultimate 1920s Cthulhu London setting.
As well as the fantastic boxed set, you can also get original content from a dazzling array of gaming luminaries. First up is a series of postcards you can use as inspiration or in-game handouts, with the initial postcard written by none other than Sandy Petersen. Sandy designed the Call of Cthulhu RPG, numerous other games and adventures, and most recently the Cthulhu Wars boardgame.
