Greece Lightning Announced
WizKids has announced a new push-your-luck racing game, set for release this June. "Players race around a circular track, trying to be the first to complete two laps. You’ll roll two dice to move your boat—but you can risk going faster by rolling a third die. Careful! If you roll lower than your second die, you’ll lose them, and only keep your first die!"
