We are proud to announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for our newest game Dicey Peaks! Created by superstar game designer Scott Almes, Dicey Peaks is a thrilling tile-flipping, dice-rolling game for 2-6 players!
In the game, you are attempting to be the first to reach the fabled red flag at the top of Yeti Mountain. To get there, you have to push your luck rolling dice and skillfully choosing when to press ahead, and when to rest to regain some precious oxygen. As you advance, you reveal tiles that can help or hinder your progress. Most dangerous of all are the hazards – avalanches and Yetis that can cause you to bust if you press your luck a bit too far!
We are beyond excited to have worked with Scott Almes on his first Calliope Game, bringing this quick-playing heart-pounding adventure to life! We want this game to be the best possible presentation, so we have partnered again with crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to open it up to amazing backers whose pledges allow us to improve the components and build an immediate interest in the game.
Here is a quick “peak” at the components currently slated to be in the box (and which we can hopefully upgrade even further after shattering goals on Kickstarter):
The components in Dicey Peaks
We sincerely hope you will take a look at the Kickstarter campaign for Dicey Peaks and consider pledging to get a copy. There is a standard edition for only $26 (including free shipping within the continental U.S.) or a deluxe edition – featuring an exclusive linen-finish box cover, a book of art from the game, and a Yeti standee – for only $36 (again, with free shipping within the continental U.S.).
Have a great day, and watch out for Yetis!
What a finish! Our backers contributed over $200,000, unlocking three stretch goals in the process! Now it’s time to get to work and show the world what can happen when designers, publishers, and gamers join forces. Let’s get to work!

“The games one describes as ‘gateway’ games are probably my favorite area of games…When people say ‘gateway’ and ‘filler’ games, oftentimes those terms don’t carry the depth of the love I have for that category and I think it underestimates their potential.”
