Smirk & Dagger knows why you play games – it’s the same reason they do. They love to taunt, to instigate, and to watch the sparks fly. They know how sweet revenge is, and they know that games are a lot more fun when you can stab your friend in the back. They’ve built their company on it… because after all, it’s just a game.

This year, Smirk & Dagger have sent us Roll for Your Life, Candyman! and The Spill!

ROLL for Your Life, Candyman!

Designed by Andy Geremia, art by Curt Covert

Let’s get ready to CRUMBLE!!!
ROLL for Your Life, Candyman! is a frantic, real-time dice fest of gingerbread cookie combat in which 2-4 players face off in arena-style, free-for-all battles, rolling their dice like crazy. When a player gets all four of their dice to match, they grab the plastic candy cane at the center of the table, stopping the action and claiming an opponent’s limb that matches the die result. Losing all of your limbs eliminates your from the round — but fear not, it is the player at the end of three rounds who has collected the most cookie parts that wins the day!
