About Me and My Blog

The first time I ever did a public ‘article’ was on July 18, 2015 in our local Dice Masters group on Facebook about Captain Cold: Leonard Wynters. I wrote several articles in that group but it didn’t take long for me to realize that a Facebook group wasn’t the best place for publishing articles. I dug up an old WordPress site I’d started and hadn’t done anything with and began transferring my previous articles. My Dice Dice Kitty persona was born at that moment on November 8, 2015 and has spread to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

My blog used to be primarily about Dice Masters, but I’ve grown it to include Board Games, comics, Star Trek: Attack Wing, and even occasional recaps of our roleplaying sessions. I’m also a huge fan of My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so you’ll see I use lots of screen shots from those IPs for article pictures and other various things. I also attend conventions when I can and do coverage for those on my Facebook and Twitter.

I like to do a variety of reviews and unboxings and I hope folks find those helpful and informational. When it comes to my reviews, I do not play favorites with companies and I always give my honest opinion. My opinion is not fact, of course, but it is at least another perspective to take into consideration when it comes to products that folks want to spend their hard earned money on. I encourage everyone to seek out multiple reviews for a product so that they have as much information and perspective as possible!

I also try to do interviews with celebrity guests, vendors, and attendees at conventions. I do not discuss politics or political positions in those interviews and I try to avoid religious topics as well. I look at it this way – If I’m watching an interview about a celebrity or anyone else, I want to hear cool behind the scenes stuff or how they feel about the character they portrayed, not current world topics. There is plenty of coverage for that – elsewhere.

Here are some of the types of content you’ll find and when to expect them:
~ Comic Box Recap – Typically weekly, whenever I finish reading the comics in my subscription box.
~ Board Game Review – Component and game play reviews – no set publish date.
~ Star Trek Adventures Session Recap – Kage Hoshi Division recaps are published after our sessions, and we try to play at least once a month.

Here is the list of potential content in the works:
~ Monthly D&D Campaign Recap (Whenever I start my game back up)
~ Star Trek related content about episodes, actors, books, etc.

Cancelled Article Series
~ HeroClix Figure Spotlight – Cancelled due to low views.
~ Dice Masters Confusing Card of the Week – The fate of this series is currently being decided.

I have a lot of content across all my social media and YouTube as well as articles here.

Basic Rules

I keep my private life out of my blog, so you won’t see articles about politics or religion. This is not the place for it, so I do not allow any political or religious related content – regardless of any good intentions. These types of statements will be removed without warning.

I do not approve of anything obscene, vulgar, or offensive being posted in comments on any of the sites I host from. These type of statements will be removed without warning.

I don’t like folks being mean to each other. There is enough cruelty in the world and I don’t want it on any of my content. Please, express your negativity in a more constructive way and don’t direct it at anyone.

Bottom line – be nice and friendly. There is enough hate in the world and I want folks to feel like they can safely explore my sites without fear of being exposed to current world issues. I don’t believe in the absolute censoring of folks, but there are platforms available for that discussion and this is not that platform.

Contacting Me

While I have folks from the community on my private Facebook page, I do not share my private social media pages with everyone. I have a Facebook page (Kitty Masters) that I use to share my content on Facebook. If you message Kitty Masters, you will not get a response. You can contact me through email at dicedicekitty@gmail.com or on my official blog Facebook page, here.

Closing

I hope that you find at least one thing you enjoy or that is of interest to you in my content. I’m so thankful that you visited my site and I appreciate all the likes, followers, and subscribers for taking that extra step and hitting those buttons. The bigger my sites get, the better variety of content I can provide!

If you’re looking for my previous sticky post with all the Dice Masters links, you can find it here.

Is there a convention you want to see me at?
Is there a board game I need to check out?
Want me to write about something in particular?

Boldly Go!

Dice Masters, Roll On!

Greetings Gamers!

I decided to start a blog all about Dice Masters. My husband and I absolutely love playing this game and we want to share everything we can about it. We run all of our local events and OP events in a small town called Dyersburg. If you happen to be in or around west Tennessee and want to grab a few games, stop on in!

But on to Dice Masters and what this blog is going to be about.

We have a Facebook group for the local players to join and talk about Dice Masters. I do a post every week called a CCW, Confusing Card of the Week. We take a look at cards, combos, and game mechanics that may be confusing to some players or just need a little clarification. I plan to move our CCW to my blog. I feel like that’s the best move because the posts will be easier to read here. Some of them get pretty long! I’m going to be adding all the previous CCW posts from the Facebook group to here as well.

Aside from moving our CCW to the blog, I would also like to post on a variety of topics that would just be too much for a single Facebook post.

I want to talk about a variety of things including:

  • strategies in team building and dice rolling
  • how to deal with bad RNG*
  • how to build a ‘fun’ team versus a ‘competitive’ team
  • same character, different card comparisons
  • and many more topics

I also want the opinions of others, not necessarily from our area, and posting in a blog is the best way to reach folks! And just because you don’t live in Dyersburg, doesn’t mean you can’t be part of our Dice Masters group on Facebook. Just click here to find our group on Facebook!

I will give this one warning – I do not tolerate hate talk against other players or Wizkids.

We (as a player base) understand that Wizkids is not perfect and they make a lot of mistakes. We all understand that the Rules Forum is somewhat of a mess and that card wording is not totally consistent. There is no need to bash them for it. They’re learning so give them some growing space.

If a player doesn’t quite understand something – don’t call them names or belittle them. Some players who have played from the start of Dice Masters may still have trouble understanding some of the rules or cards. That’s okay! Everyone has a different learning curve, be it a few minutes to a few months (or more).

Just be nice and have fun! If you have any questions or something you’d like to see a post about, leave a comment on the blog or in the Facebook group. We’ll see what we can do!

Also, if you ever see a link in one of the blog posts that doesn’t work, please let me know! I’ll fix it as soon as I can.

Roll on, Dice Masters!

*RNG – Random Number Generator
Most often used in online games. Example, “We defeated this boss and he didn’t have loot for me. RNG hates me.”   When used in relation to dice and card games, RNG refers to bad dice rolls or several bad draws in a row.
