The Tabletop Spotlight is on Dice Town – Dice, Dollars & Fun!
If you’re looking for a fast, fun game with an old west setting that tickles the gambler in us all then look no further than Dice Town:
Our friends at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy brought this one over for us to check out and I’m glad they did. It’s a cool spin on using Poker Dice as the primary game play mechanic. This game takes luck, tactics and bluffing to the next level and keeps you coming back for more.
The goal of the game is to become the towns richest citizen. Players each have a “hand” of dice they roll, and the best hand gets to go first. You take your hand and you get to visit the town’s different shops. Each shop rewards you based on the hand you have – these rewards can vary from gold nuggets, to cash, to various other items. At the end of the game the player with the most VPs wins.
The Rules are free to download and the game is deceptively fun! I really like the card-hand mechanic as you’re forced to choose a hand based on what you roll. You can try to re-roll your dice to get what you need but other players can see what you’re rolling for and that is where the strategy comes in. Most games only take around 45 minutes and it’s super easy to reset. It’s in stores now so go check it out!
Welcome to Dice Town, the city of luck and prosperity! Here, we admire the brave and love winners; especially those willing to bet their future on a roll of a dice! But you’ll find that being clever also pays well, if you know how to adapt and bring your own luck to the table.
Opportunities are everywhere in our proud town: gold nuggets are knee deep in the mine, the bank has too many dollars and the mayor is a quick dealer when it comes to handing out Property Claims. Unless you fancy a Sheriff’s badge or just want to hang out in the Saloon?
In Dice Town, you’re the boss, and anything can happen!
