The game board is divided into three parts - Thinking, Action, and Trivia. Thinking and Action make sense, usually, and make better use of the dice, but the trivia section just seems to be a bust. Many of the questions are so oblique that several people we have tried this game with are just stunned. There are some fun trivia questions that sort of make use of the dice, but with the 30 second timer, it's rare to get the answers. For example, roll an 12 sided dice and name that many Beatles songs in 30 seconds. You'd be surprised how that quick of a timer pressurizes that question.
The other sections also miss the opportunity to use all the dice well, and sometimes the winner of a card is determined solely on luck (roll one of each die and add them up - highest wins and moves).
Overall, the game has alot of potential - we're thinking about writing some alternate cards and ditching the trivia section altogether - especially since after playing the game twice with 4 people, we've already looped through ALL of the cards.
We also found the length of the game to be a little tiresome. This could also be helped with more card variety. If an expansion comes out with about 60-100 cards of each color, we might buy it, unless we follow through on our plan to write our own cards. Given the opportunity, I would not buy this game again.
I do like the fact that it includes so many dice, which is why I purchased it. However, after playing it, we found that the dice are mostly used in one section of the game. The other two sections involve mostly drawing and trivia.
Now here are the "limited" problems:
The Triviaville cards have no consistency, and ask questions ranging from "who is the author of Harry Potter," to "what does 'HTTP' stand for?" Also, there are so few trivia cards that they'll be memorized quickly. My only option is to replace the cards with an inexpensive trivia book or use trivia cards from another game.
The Thinkingtown cards are the most fun, and include the dice in the game. The creator should've made that section much larger since the game is called Dicecapades, after all. In fact the entire game would be more entertaining if there were nothing but dice plays.
Finally, the Actionland cards. My family almost threw the game out over these... I rewrote most of them, and taped new actions on the majority of these cards using index cards. Nearly every card is a drawing card, in which you roll a colored die and then draw the subject listed. The other players guess what it is, to advance. Well, someone explain to me how a person is supposed to draw words such as construct, Chairman Mao, burping, Summon, or arrogant? Seriously? We're pretty good at drawing games, but these were just ridiculous.Read more ›
