Wow, I loved this game. I didn't expect to; my expectation going in to it was that it would be overly complicated and simulation-y. But it is neither. Sure, it's got complication, but all the complication seems to be DOING something; it's not just there for bragging rights.
I'm surprised by how much I like this game. It is so very, very, random, and yet it doesn't bother me that much. I need to play it more to really decide my feelings on it. With more plays, the randomness might get too much, or I might see areas for tactics and strategy that weren't immediately obvious to me.
Rating after only one play. I think the rating will go up if I could play it more often; the first game was mostly figuring out what I was doing. I like the dice mechanic for action selection, and the ability to buy other people's dice. It's like Yspahan on crack. It feels less dry than Caylus, but I think Carson City is probably a better fit for me.
