Rio Grande Games has announced two new games for third quarter release: Pressure Cooker and Rattlebones, according to hobby industry news website

Releasing in September is the dice-building game Rattlebones, designed by Stephen Glenn (Balloon Cup, 1st and Goal). Players build customizable dice (rather than a customizable deck in a deck-building game), by removing and replacing sides on a standard 6-sided die, to build the best set of custom dice to score points. 



The game is for 2-4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 30-60 minutes.

Releasing in August is a real-time set collecting game Pressure Cooker, designed by Kane Klenko (Mad City).  Players take rolls as chefs at the hot new restaurant Tres Yummy on opening night, out to fill their orders the fastest and win the coveted roll of Head Chef.  Over three rounds, players collect ingredient tiles to fulfill their orders accurately, thus earning points.  Things move more quickly as the rounds progress. The highest point total at the end wins.

The game is for 2-4 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 30-60 minutes.
