Slice Second Edition

Hi, I’m Matt. Last year my daughter Mya and I created a role-playing game (RPG) for kids. It really caught on in our homeschooling community, and we’ve been playing it with so many different kids since then. RPGs offer children a unique way to use their problem-solving skills and imagination to engage each other in collaborative storytelling.

This year we’ve taken everything we’ve learned to make SLICE 2nd edition. We created a whole new character sheet with visual icons so that it’s more like a video game, and we made it so that you can not only level up your character, but also their talents and items. SLICE 2nd ed. keeps the dynamic dice rolling system and the SLICE mechanic that makes dice rolling so exciting. (Please note that the six sided dice required to play are available to purchase at your local game store.) The rules have also been completely overhauled to allow for richer character development and more in-depth campaigns.

Pledges start at $12 for second edition PDF and you can get both editions for $15.
