Create Your Own Digital Board Games With DICE+

DICE+ is ready for your best gaming ideas.DICE+ is ready for your best gaming ideas.

Innovation can come in many forms. That’s why Game Technologies, creator of DICE+, the first electronic dice, is on the look-out for cutting edge board game ideas – for tablets.

You pay $99 for the Developer Pack, which includes shipping worldwide, and you can get things cooking in your laboratory. The package will hold a unique DICE+, but instead of the blue casing, developers will get a special transparent one as a thank you for supporting the technology.

How many times have you played “Sorry,” “Trouble,” or “Monopoly,” and desperately wanted to alter some gameplay rules that didn’t make much sense? This call for submissions is definitely for you.

Game Technologies is also announcing that the customer version of DICE+ will be available for pre-order during Summer 2013. Following the level of interest from resellers and consumers at last year’s E3, Game Technologies has been working behind the scenes over the past few months to seek further investment and increase its original production number from tens of thousands to half a million units.

Key features including:

  •  accelerometer,
  •  magnetic field sensor,
  •  Bluetooth 2.1 and 4.0 (Low Energy),
  •  independent touch-sensitive sides,
  •  6 LEDs that can glow in any color,
  •  a battery that gives you up to 20h of game play,
  •  a standby of 6 months,
  •  a microUSB for easy charging,
  •  and yes, a thermometer.

This is what Game Technologies aims to get the latest technology available and create products that that are intuitive and easy to use.

So, if you have an idea, fire up your creative mojo and take a roll of the dice. Any game developer can register at http://developers.dicepl.us and buy a Developer Kit.
