Proving Grounds, releasing from Renegade Game Studios, is a real-time solo dice game from the creator of FUSE and Flatline. It merges narrative and gameplay in a brand-new way.

Read the story of Maia Strongheart as she fights to ascend to the Sun Throne. Then, recreate her extraordinary battle!
If you’ve never played a solo game before, this is a great place to start. There is a training game and six different gameplay modules. Once you’ve learned the basics, add a single module or mix and match to your tastes. If you’re feeling truly adventurous, put them all together for a true test of your gladiatorial combat skills!

WizKids is pleased to announce that its new building-toppling, car-throwing, city-crushing dice game, Smash City, is coming soon to North American Game Stores!
In this dice-rolling game designed by Stephen Avery, and inspired by Japan’s iconic kaiju creatures, players become giant monsters powered by different types of energy, battling for dominance. The game features three-dimensional city buildings that players can knock over to gain different abilities. Each turn, they will roll giant dice in order to make the strongest possible attack against their opponents. If a building is knocked over, that player takes a Smash card, which give players special abilities. If a player knocks a building onto one of their opponents, that opponent takes damage based on the number of buildings that fell on them. If the player’s die is touching a building with an energy token matching that monster’s favored type of energy, they gain a Power Up token. They may also throw cars if their die lands within range of one, dealing 1 damage if they hit a monster or monsters and granting a Power Up token to that player.
However, as they destroy the city, the city will fight back. The civilians have sent armies to take you on, and if you happen to land in the vicinity of one of these armies, you will take damage. Additionally, you will take damage if your die is touching a building with an energy token that your monster does not favor.
The game ends when a monster reaches its last life point. The player who has the most Power Up tokens at the end of the game is the winner. With 4 unique monsters including the terrifying Toxiguana and the monstrous Magmalodon, Smash City will fire players up as they cause chaos and destruction in a battle to the death. Smash City is coming soon, so be sure to pre order it at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!
