Fist Full of Donuts eaten by Villains

Title says it all. While it was a lot of fun, Fist Full of Donuts was utterly devoured by a villains team. While playing against @Of_Dice_And_Men he fielded a very efficient Villains team. Captain Cold, Black Manta, and Cheetah were especially efficient. While discussing Diablo names, @Of_Dice_And_Men mentioned that one German randomized name was Stinkfaul der kalte (ultra lazy the cold is the rough translation, literal translation is stink lazy the cold). I continued to call Captain Cold Stinkfaul der kalte, because he just sat there and slowed me down. Very effecient, like a German engineered donut eating party.

I was a bit nervous to invite @Of_Dice_And_Men over to our temporary apartment. I’m not really clued into social nuance. However, @Of_Dice_And_Men knocked it out of the park with bringing cat treats for Kalle (der Kralle -the claw) and Nomi. He also brought some tasty craft beer. 10 of 10, hope he comes to play again.

So here is where I think my deck went wrong, and I think this might help for strategy in any limited collection.

  1. Use what you have, the closer you get to 20 dice in a team the better
  2. Have a midgame stragegy. One can’t go from early game straight into late game.
  3. Removal and ramp are very important

My first game I tried to attack as much as possible as quickly as possible. That dried up way too quickly partly because I couldn’t field and buy dice constantly. I had only 14 dice out of 20. I also had no 4 drops. I consistently was missing a four purchase character, and as soon as there was one or two villains on the board, I was hosed. I also didn’t have a response to a Joker making it impossible to field Hulk. Removal or ramp would’ve fixed this I think.

That being said, Fist Full of Donuts is no more! Now I have made Super Donuts!

Super Donuts

Basic Action Cards

Dark Avenger

Call to Action

Characters

Catwoman – Antihero x2

Harvey Bullock – Donut Enthusiast x 3 (aka Donut Dude)

Oracle – Hacker x2

Krypto – Super Loyal x2

Bane – Professional Criminal x1

Power Girl – Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision x3

Next post will be the strategy behind it all…

Fist Full of Donuts

That’s the name of the team I’m going to field the first time I play Dice Masters in Germany. I’ve bought the World’s Finest starter, the German version of the Avengers vs. X-Men Starter, and various packs of Uncanny X-Men and World’s Finest. The rest of the collection is still in storage waiting for us to move into our new place. That will happen in May, but until then, I’m working with this (not a complaint).

So without further adieu here is the list…

Fist Full of Donuts

Basic Action Cards

Power Bolt (Kraftwelle)

Call to Action

Characters

Falcon – Samuel Wilson

Catwoman – Antihero

Harvey Bullock – Donut Enthusiast

Ant-Man – Pym Particles

Black Panther – T’Challa

Bane – Professional Criminal

Spider-Man – Webslinger (Netzwerfer)

Hulk – Anger Issues (Wutausbrüche)

The strategy is get in some early damage in and then ramp into Hulk and ping him with Power Bolt for the increase in A if need be. I normally wouldn’t use Harvey Bullock, but he fits the fist type, fits the curve, and I had 3 dice of him. Plus how can you turn down dice with a donut?

Dice Masters Frankfurt

So on April 16th at 2:00 pm 30th at Terminal Entertainment, it looks like the first meeting of Frankfurt Dice Masters will take place! It may only be two or three people, but as long as the dice is rolling, size doesn’t matter (twss?)
