Cue the barbershop quartet and usher in some fellow dice game fans for a fast-action battle! Cuphead Fast Rolling Dice Game lets you relive the intense gameplay of Studio MDHR’s popular video game on the tabletop, and it’s available now!
Join the iconic game’s characters Cuphead, Mugman, Ms. Chalice, and Elder Kettle for a cooperative challenge where you and your friends must face-off against an ever-harder series of imaginative bosses to earn soul contracts and pay back your debt to The Devil! This intense analog version of the classic cartoon-themed run and gun adventure puts you right back in the line of fire against 8 evolving bosses. Level by level, players work together and overpower the biggest threat in each deck before opening the next box, racing against time, and always reaching for that best personal grade!
As the story of the brothers from the fantastical Inkwell Isle goes, Cuphead and Mugman must settle up with the Devil after making a wager that went sideways, leaving the two on a quest to collect the soul contract of other errant debtors. Against all odds, and with the help of their pals Ms. Chalice and Elder Kettle, this plucky duo sets off an all-cartoon adventure for the ages.
Mirroring this on the tabletop, each character goes on an Action Dice-rolling frenzy—rolling, assigning, and rolling again—hoping to collect the sets of icons they need to duck, shoot, jump and parry through obstacles and enemies. You only have a limited amount of time to attack each Boss without one player losing all their Health, or everyone must begin again! The addictive mission and unpredictable gameplay make it hard to resist pressing your luck and pulling out all the stops until you’ve won the game and beat your previous score!
Different Bosses will require different levels of attack power to defeat. Luckily, Cuphead Fast Rolling Dice Game equips players just like the video game—here it’s with EX dice that boost abilities and wildcard Wallops that help defend against damaging hits. Weapons can also be upgraded with coins earned by each player using Porkrind’s Emporium cards, which offer equipment, Super Arts, and Charms that are only unlocked if certain experience requirements are met.
Cuphead Fast Rolling Dice Game is rich with the same 1930s animation style that infused Studio MDHR’s hit side-scroller with whimsical, perilous, and courageous ups and downs. From the endearing-yet-menacing appearance of the enemy roster to the lovingly crafted icons and symbols found on other components, there’s no shortage of enjoyable nostalgia, even as the Devil lurks around the corner, out to get you! And don’t sweat keeping track of your progress through all the repeated playthroughs—a downloadable app provides a timer and tabulator to add up your remaining Health, Parry, Wallop Cards and Time tokens, all in service of helping you earn a higher grade!
Cuphead Fast Rolling Dice Game is for 1-4 players, ages 12 and up, and is finally here in The Op’s online shop or at your favorite local game store for $49.99!
