* Simple to learn/play
* Quick to play
* Gets old (especially when you play 10+ games in a row)
* People can't leave their dice alone.
This game is fun. its better when everyone at the table is going for one big point card, and you just happen to take it.
I always bring this game with me to game nights, it is simple, short, small and easy to carry, and a few people I play with absolutely LOVE this game! I however have gotten a bit sick of it, but don't have problems playing as long as its under 3 times in a single night. When you play for hours on end, you can tend to get sick of it.
It does get repetitive. I mean, you roll you dice, and take a die or more and place it next to one or more of the cards you are trying to get, then let the next person go until it is your turn again, then do it over. That is about it, no real strategy, mainly just the luck of the roll.
The fun begins when you don't have the required dice. You commit the dice that match to the card you hope to wrap up in subsequent turns. That means you slide your dice forward next to the card and leave them there, not rolling them the next turn. You can commit to multiple cards. And tension ensues when more than one person has dice committed on the same card. Who will get the die rolls needed first?
Now we have a house rule that if you don't commit any dice, you can change one to what you would like it to be. This keeps people from accomplishing nothing multiple turns in a row. A bitter pill for 4 and 39 year olds to swallow.
Why only four stars? While my six year old likes to get a game of this in with me before I leave for work in the morning (yes, it's very tender), I do like a little more depth to my games, and I don't like when luck can keep you from progressing indefinitely. Who likes that? Raise your hands. Be proud!
It takes about 2 minutes to teach someone how to play. I like it for that reason.
And the more people there are, the better the game play. When someone wins a card and gets the points, there are a lot more "losers" who get their dice back. It is harder to win.
I played the game with my son and we got through 3 rounds to 40 points fairly quickly. One round I got to 40+ while he had 7 points. So luck has a lot of sway in the game.
The price may seem high, but getting 8 sets of dice and the cards is no easy task. To match the quality I found that it would cost about the same to manufacture.
I'll be playing it a lot with teens on scout trips and with adults at conferences. It is good for about 30-60 minutes and then people lose interest. It is not that deep strategically. Still, we coupled our discussion with favorite movies, vacation spots, and other things to discuss. Each person had to say what theirs was while playing their turn. Added a lot to the game.
This attractive little tin is definitely the way to go if you want to play it with a group of 4+ people... It includes more cards & sets of dice, and it's about the size of Bang!, Hanabi or Sushi Go. Very easy to store and it's portable... All big pluses.
The price seemed a tad high before we played it, but for the fun of the game and its aesthetic appeal, this collectable(?) tin is absolutely worth it. This will be an easy-to-teach favorite for years to come. We're so glad that we ponyed up for this version, and I'd buy it again if I had to.
Here is the link for the Purple edition:
It is an easy game to learn, and a quick game to play (average game length is stated to be 20 - 40 minutes. I have not timed how long it has taken us to play it, but it hasn't seemed to take very long). I was able to teach my friends and family how to play the game in just a couple of minutes, and they really enjoyed how quickly they were able to start playing and enjoying the game.
This Deluxe version is for 2 - 8 players (and has nicer cards), and the Red and Purple editions are for 2 - 4 players (or you can combine both editions for up to 8 players). I bought all three editions of the game because we sometimes have more than 8 - 12 players at our game nights.
The games are small in size, so they are easily transportable. They can fit in a pocket or purse, and you can play them at places you go to, like restaurants or coffee shops.
I am very happy with this purchase.
