Tracking health in a game like Flesh and Blood is the most critical need for any set of components, and while pen and paper tracking is rightly the standard in high-level tournaments, we were interested in a thematic system that could function in lower key tournament environments and casual play – including webcam – where the vast majority of our Flesh and Blood experience actually takes place.
Early attempts explored the idea of a health bar of flippable tokens, similar to our Marvel Champions and Arkham Horror designs, but using those prototypes was much too impractical and time consuming. Additionally, we were finding that having d6s around to track all of the random functions of the game was extremely helpful (and the 12mm brick made a consistent appearance when we were researching existing player solutions during the Calling events).
As such, we pivoted to a minimal design that complemented the dice-based solution that players were already gravitating toward, while making practical tweaks to its usability – such as maximizing the space between each die and ensuring the board was the size of a trading card for easy transport and storage (and to give it a proper place among the card-size outlines on those FAB playmats).
Going deep into the imagery and iconography of Rathe to evoke an item / armor piece that fits seamlessly into the world was the final polish needed to call this one ready for tables across the world.
Each Majestic Dice Board fits 12mm Chessex dice (we presume other brands in this size as well), but we did find that the Marble Chessex style was very tight. Dice of the Marbled style are actually larger than those of the other Chessex 12mm styles we tested, so be aware that even though they “fit”, they will be much tighter. Styles we tested without issue: Opaque, Speckled, and Frosted
The boards are cast using a unique resin and wash method, and backed with dark gray felt. No two boards using this process are the same, with variation between how “battleworn” the borders and interiors appear.
Here are a few more reasons why we love them:
- Rigorously playtested in real games for balance in theme, function, and feel.
- Art-forward design creates a more engaging story, every time
- Felt-backed to prevent scratching surfaces (and because it just feels nice)
- Laser-cut to exceedingly precise measurements, with intricate border textures
- Easy recognition and comprehension at a glance
- Made using exclusive techniques pioneered on this line
- Designed in-house at Covenant in Tulsa, OK
- Manufactured in small batches in Tulsa, OK
You can see this board revealed and in-use during our The Calling testing streams – the first of which is below!
The appearance of your Majestic Dice Board may vary ever so slightly from the renderings and images shown here due to color variations in displays, cameras, resin, and process. Note that because they are resin, Majestic Dice Boards may warp if left in hot places for a long period of time (a car in the summer, for example). If this happens, heat it up again, lay it flat with a heavy object on top (like a book), and let it cool. Problem solved!
Majestic Dice Boards are third-party accessories produced and sold exclusively by us. Though compatible with the Flesh and Blood TCG, they are not associated with or officially endorsed by Legend Story Studios or any other entity.
