From the run through, it looks like there's actually a fair bit of strategy and luck mitigation through rerolls, etc…? October 27, 2014 Reply JasonDBG That is right up my alley October 27, 2014 Reply kurunirek damn You Rhado !!! 😛 i wasn't interested in this…. i wasn't….. 😉 Looking good i must say this runthrough got me interested in this. Thanks 🙂 October 27, 2014 Reply Alexandre Djioev Hi rahdo, thank you for review. Is this print quality just as "good" as nations? 🙂 October 27, 2014 Reply TyphoidBryan Hmm.. some of the dice icons could be a little more distinct, but nevertheless, this is a cool game! October 27, 2014 Reply Jerry Wolfe Is this a prototype? If not the quality looks bad. The score board is warping, not a good sign.Also you never explained trading dice to get either Gold, Food or Stone, 2 for 1 as free actions.If you had traded 1st or 2nd Age someone would have been able to get a leader because of all the wasted dice, just saying 🙂 October 27, 2014 Reply Jason Wayne Speicher dice brewing vs nations: the dice game. is my question? October 27, 2014 Reply Carried Away 10:02 You actually rolled 2 stone, not 2 culture 🙂 October 27, 2014 Reply Anarchosyn The turn structure of incremental small moves really reminds me of Terra Mystica, oddly enough. It is probably the theme and end of round scoring that strikes the similarity too. /pointless observation of the day. October 27, 2014 Reply Coalgolem Unfortunately it's not a prototype. I also played the game at the Spiel in Essen, and like Nations, the components are the weakest part of the game. I don't get it why the production quality of an Asmodee title is so damn cheap? The game is really good, but I am really pissed that Asmodee sells both Nations titles way overpriced for what you get in return (regarding components). Both are great games though. October 28, 2014 Reply Tom W hi, so this seems interesting. I was super into Nations but never got it because, I could already see my other "gamers" nick away after I explain the many rules. (weirdly enough I live in germany the boardgame country but most people around me dont play them. Its cruel) So this simplified and short dice version seems really interesting to scratch my civ building itch. You can explain it probably in under three minutes while setting up and be off to a good short game. And the best part since its so short one can play one round and then do another one right after because all the new player got the hang of it. (also it serves the small attention span of my partner gamers 😉 ) October 28, 2014 Reply SARMANTINE what are the nations? January 27, 2015 Reply Diana Rivera Wanted to share with rahdo these Halfsies dice. I think they're pretty, backers vote on colors, and not a bad price. I thought Jen might like them too, to use with some games. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johnwrot/halfsies-dice/comments February 25, 2015 Reply Jens Poder This looks awesome 🙂 Except for component quality, which looks like something from cold war era eastern europe. June 18, 2015 Reply Jonathan Grant It looks like a pretty interesting game but the art and component quality just isn't doing much for me…if I didn't have a few other great games calling me that have better presentation I might not care but as is I think I'm gonna have to pass for now. Will have to check out my FLGS to see if they have a demo copy I can fall in love with and change my mind. Until then, I think Discoveries is winning out for me. Can't wait for that to come! October 24, 2015 Reply MARK FERGUSON can you please explain (slowly) how the score cards in the middle work? also setting up of those square thingymabobbers. Keep up the good work. Love your channel April 10, 2018 Reply supercommando440 hey just caught this video… SO maybe you can help me; I'm looking for a good solo dice game, something simple like DeepSpace D6… Roll For the Galaxy is too heavy… This game is a little too heavy as well. Still considering Favor Of the Pharaoh but as I said, not sure it would be fun solo. The only other resource/dice building game I've seen that looks very solo-able is Istanbul Dice. Just wondering if you would have any other ideas for these kind of solo games. OH… btw, I just picked up Escape The Dark Castle…. dice, cards, not a lot of resource building but looks cool. Havent played it yet. I also play Space Base solo… super fun… roll, gather cards, build your scoring "engine". OK hope you have a few suggestions. This game here… Nations… pass 🙁 October 31, 2018 Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
