LUCHADOR! Mexican Wrestling Dice 2nd edition – Backspindle Games

Shameless self-promotion time…

This project goes live on Tuesday so GET IN THERE!


The high-flying hit of Essen 2013 is back to create a hard-hitting second edition! Lay the smackdown on some of Lucha Libre’s finest!

Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice brings the flamboyant and colorful world of Lucha Libre Wrestling to your gaming table.

The first edition was launched last October at Spiel in Essen where it rose quickly into the top 30 on the Boardgamegeek GeekBuzz listings for most popular game, eventually finishing twenty-sixth out of over 600 new releases at the event.

That first edition is now close to selling out and we’ve been listening to the exciting feedback from Luchador! players around the world as well as working with the designer Mark Rivera to make the game even better.



I will put up the Kickstarter link on Tuesday when it goes live
