It’s time to prepare your ofrenda, tonight is the Day of the Dead! Make your altar the most beautiful of all, decorate the borders with papel picado, shower it with marigold flowers and bring only the freshest bread, food and drink, so the souls of the deceased can rest and eat and drink, recovering their strengths in their long trip between the land of the dead and the living. As night falls and the moon rises, light the candles and incense, let your altar become a guiding beacon for the spirits going home.
The Ofrenda Variant takes the Die of the Dead dice, caskets and steps, and transforms them into a dice drafting game in which players attempt to make their altars the most appealing to their ancestors. Instead of putting dice in caskets players are drafting dice from caskets, to reprsent the bread, candles, incense and marigolds which will adorn their altars.
The Ofrenda Variant offers a puzzle based spin on Die of the Dead, for players who love the theme and beauty but prefer something less on the luck side of things. In order to enable more people to play Die of the Dead to celebrate Dia de Muertos this expansion also contains a solo mode, something only possible with the cerebral nature of this variant.
