[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

February 3, 2014, Hillside, N.J . - Forty never-before-seen dice, and new rules and ways to have immeasurable amounts of dice-battling fun will soon arrive to your virtual tabletop! Quarmageddon, the expansion to the super-humorous dice "deck-building" game Quarriors! for iPad®, has been announced by game maker WizKids/NECA today.

Quarmageddon will be available in February as a $1.99 In-app Purchase for players of Quarriors!.  Also, Quarriors! will receive several updates (detailed below) to crank up the fun in both Quarriors! and Quarmageddon matches.

For a very limited time after the launch of Quarmageddon, Quarriors!, normally $3.99 USD, will be free! For just $1.99 USD, you get both the original Quarriors! and the Quarmageddon expansion! 

New in Quarmageddon

  • 40 new dice to help power up a variety of novel monsters, heroes and spells.
  • 26 never-before-seen cards powering 6 new creatures and 2 new spells.
  • Novel "Immunity" ability for some creatures -- watch as they laugh off your opponent's attacks and spells! 
Updates to Quarriors!
  • Multiple difficulty settings allow you to tailor the AI to your skills.
  • Optional rules (Advanced Capture and Expert Culling) to deepen the gameplay and boost the challenge in multiplayer modes.
  • An improved and expanded tutorial that takes newcomers through multiple rounds of gameplay.
  • Tweaks to multiplayer matchmaking and gameplay.
Quarriors! for iPad®  offers single player and 2 to 4 player online and offline multiplayer along with "Pass-n-Play" action! For ages 14 and up, Quarriors! is a unique blend of strategy and chance featuring a revolutionary dice building game mechanic! As a Quarrior! - a mighty mystical warrior - only you have the power to capture dangerous Quarry from the untamed wilds! But your rivals plot against you! They will send their own Creatures and Spells to destroy your Quarry before you can deliver them to Empress Quiana and claim your reward! Summon your Creatures and protect them from your foes and you will earn Glory for yourself. The first player to earn enough Glory will be hailed as the Champion of the Empress. Deck-building strategy without the tedium of shuffling!

Features of Quarriors! include: 

  • Full and faithful transliteration of the original dice building board game Quarriors! by Mike Elliott and Eric M. Lang.
  • Single player and up to four-player multiplayer and Pass-n-Play modes.
  • Full tutorial included.
  • Automatic scoring and rules enforcement.
  • Challenging strategic gameplay.
  • Immersive sounds, art and engaging special effects bring the tabletop game to life!
  • Compatible with iPad (2nd Generation), iPad (3rd Generation), iPad (4th Generation) and iPad Mini running iOS 5.1 or greater.
