Looking to snag more DC Dice Masters product and get some games in at the same time? Join us on Saturday May 16th starting at 1:00 PM for a day of Dice Masters Rainbow Draft!
All day long we will be firing off 6-Man pods of Rainbow draft using the new DC Dice Masters Justice League Set. Not only will this event include prizing from the Trinity War OP kit but each pod will receive one whole gravity feed display as prizing (yup 90 packs)!
You will need to bring your own sidekick dice and basic actions (w/ dice). Only basic actions from the DC Justice League starter set will be legal for these drafts.
Rainbow Draft Format
Here's a rundown from the WizKids website of how rainbow draft works:
Each player should come to the event with 8 Sidekick Dice, 12 Basic Action Dice, 4 Indicator Cards, and 2 Basic Action Cards (players may choose which Basic Action Cards they’d like to use after completing the draft, but must use the same 2 throughout the event).
Each player in the draft sits down with 12 packs of Dice Masters to draft with.
A set of 6 packs is opened. As each player opens their packs they should verify that the cards and dice match. Keeping their cards secret, players should set them aside into a pile of 12 cards. The next 6 packs are opened and when complete are placed into a separate pile of 12 cards in front of the player (the piles are not to be mixed).
All dice are placed into the center, and arranged as below so players can see exactly which dice and how many of each will be available during the draft. We call it Rainbow Draft as players may elect to sort them by color to allow for easier visual spotting of which cards correspond to which dice during the draft.
Each player then takes the deck they most recently prepared and after a short amount of time to review the cards, they select one, setting it face down in front of them, and passing the remaining cards to the player to their right.
This card begins a pile of cards that players will be able to use in their team. After all players have selected a card, they take the pile from their left to select their next card and repeat the process until they are passed a single card to be placed into their pile.After the first stack of 12 cards have been depleted, players should take a moment to review the cards they drafted (each player should have 12 cards at this point). After reviewing their cards, players will return them to a face-down pile in front of them and draft the second pack the same way as they did the first, this time passing in the opposite direction (left).
After drafting all packs, players should take dice from those that were set aside to match each of their cards. They will then construct a tournament team based on the Basic Action Cards they own and the cards they drafted. This tournament team can have up to 8 cards and up to 20 dice across those cards (many teams will have less than this).
The basic action dice and cards and sidekick dice do not count against this limit of 8 cards and 20 dice.
