Today, we are thrilled to announce at the Essen Spiel game fair that White Wizard Games has signed KAPOW!, a superhero game with buildable dice! White Wizard Games will now sell and distribute KAPOW! worldwide. We will be launching KAPOW! as a White Wizard Games title in 2020 with a reprint and expanding the game universe with more superheroes via a partnership with 2 Ton Porcupine. The game was designed by Doug Hettrick, Carl Hettrick and Larry Bogucki and was initially launched via a successful Kickstarter.

“We saw KAPOW! at Boston Festival of Indie Games, and we saw so much potential in this game. Many players were demoing Kapow! and immediately buying the game, which is a similar experience we have with our games” said Rob Dougherty, CEO of White Wizard Games. “KAPOW! is super fun, easy to learn, and also has great strategy and tons of replayability, so it is a natural fit for our portfolio of games.”

“We are super excited to be working with White Wizard Games! The three of us are thrilled to know that Kapow! will reach a much bigger audience around the world and that the game universe will continue to expand and grow. Stay tuned for more heroic action!” Said Doug Hettrick, co-designer of Kapow! from 2 Ton Porcupine.

KAPOW! uses buildable dice, allowing you to add and remove dice faces during the course of a battle. This makes for a super-strategic dice-battling experience. With each roll, you decide how to attack, defend, and power up your character by choosing where to place your dice. The battles get more explosive with each roll and as you gain more dice and dice faces. KAPOW! is simple to learn (roll and place), but has layers of strategy as you customize your dice pool and leverage the unique powers of the KAPOW! universe’s heroes and villains. KAPOW! is a 2-player game that can be expanded to 3 or 4 players.

Each brawl in KAPOW! is dynamic because the buildable action dice are always changing. You can power up for the next round by acquiring more dice and/or faces for your action dice. You want to bring the pain??? Get more offensive faces for your dice. Are you feeling defense is the key to victory? Go with speed and agility. Adapt to your opponent: bob and weave, or push the action! It is no holds barred when you square off in KAPOW!

Time to choose!

Are you a hero…
