We've teamed up with WIMO Games to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an iPhone 13 Pro to celebrate the launch of strategy board game RPG Dice: Heroes of Whitestone, which came out recently and can be downloaded from the App Store.


RPG Dice: Heroes of Whitestone is a tabletop-style strategy game where the goal is to roll the dice to move across the board, engaging in battles, buying goods from merchants, and completing quests.

In the game's story, the people of Whitestone are under attack and it's up to the player to lead heroes into battle against orcs, elves, and goblins to restore peace.

Gameplay consists of rolling dice to move around the board, and then there are also dice-based battles where an element of luck determines the attack you perform and the damage that you do. You can choose the attack to perform, and you will be able to select from various hero options.

Battles will reward you with gold and experience for leveling up your heroes, and there are different classes to work with. There are paladins, wizards, and rogues to choose from. In addition to defeating standard enemies, the game offers boss battles, dungeon crawls, hero gauntlet battles, and even player vs. player encounters. Gamers can join guilds to team up and fight in PvP arenas, and collaborate with friends to fight formidable enemies.

RPG Dice: Heroes of Whitestone is a free-to-play game so it doesn't cost anything to download, but there is an energy system that limits gameplay. There are in-app purchases to add additional energy, but it regenerates throughout the day as well so it can be played with no monetary investment.

The graphic design of this game is too incoherent for my taste, I can't find this aesthetically pleasing regardless how long I look at it ?

I don't dislike it.....but it really does look like a cartoony version of WoW. They even ripped off the font style.....

Edit: Looks like WoW and the old Dragonslayer had a game baby....that's actually kind of a compliment :)

I was going to give the game a try but it pops up the "Allow RPG Dice to track your activity across other companies' apps and websites?" dialog. This makes the game a no go for me. I know I can mark it as Ask App Not to Track, but now that I know they want to steal data who knows what they will do. Too bad the game looked interesting.

Nice giveaway, although I don't play games of any sort.
What do you do with all your time? :D

Just kidding – I think most of us feel we're short on time. But I still think it's worth to play a digital game now and then. I like the interactivity; you're not just passively watching/reading.

Apparently Gleam.io now requires a social media login, presumably to verify that you’re a “real person” (haha). Dang, nice while it lasted.

Edit: Hmm... required it using mobile, not on my desktop.

The screenshots do look nice but it's probably a subscription so I'm not even going to bother with the app!

I read 40-60 books a year. I write. I binge watch series TV 2-3X a year. Last game I played was Angry Birds during its peak. Tried Pokemon Go a few minutes and gave up.

I would gladly pay you 10$ - but I will NEVER EVER start a game that is based on Buy Gems - Because i KNOW you wont be able to progress unless you do so... Apple should ban this genre

If those are the games you played I can understand why you stopped. :D

No, but there are so many different kind of games out there – should be something for most people. But I understand some simply don't see the appeal. Lots of book to read too and also something that can pull people in and eats time.

Cool that you write – good luck with that. Always a special feeling you have created something yourself. :)

Has anyone won any of these giveaways?!
Yes. A few members who I communicate with on the side have won the ‘Mac plush pillows’ and a saddle bag.

I think you’d be surprised how many members don’t enter these giveaways or even click on the article.

I will say this, the giveaways have really increased in the quality of products over the last two years. Some really expensive items.
