Joystick Heroes - DT Preview with Mark Streed

This is a Dice Tower Paid Preview.

Mark takes a look at "Joystick Heroes".

Joystick Heroes is a board game about playing video games - radical! At setup, create your arcade by laying out a number of Games cards. Each player starts with 10 arcade tokens. A round consists of 2 phases: (1) In the PLAY phase, choose any available Game card in your arcade, place 1 arcade token on it, and play it by rolling a number of dice based on the skills the game requires and your own skill levels. Use your hand of Power cards to boost your scores. Refer to the Top Scores chart and collect your winnings (tickets). (2) In the POWER UP phase, players spend the tickets they earned on skills upgrades or to purchase prizes. When all players run out of arcade tokens, the player with the most prizes is the new Joystick Hero!
