Quick Comment: A fun, light game that manages to actually feel like a short Civ game with Yahtzee mechanics.

Nice review, can't say that about the tie.

Very timely as I was just thinking about picking this one up on Friday.

You missed the trading rules.

I believe that the dice are marked with a wood burner, so should not fade over time. This is why there is some variation between dice in contrast. Lovely review.

Now the dice have six different sides, and they're all the same...


All the sides of the dice are the same!? Now that's one way to eliminate luck in a dice game.

Just kidding. Couldn't help but hear this the first time through and comment. I know that it means each DIE is the same, not that the faces are all the same.

Thanks for the great review.

nice review.

How sturdy are the little pegs? They aren't going to break over six or seven games are they?

This looks good. I didn't notice the sheets before, and figured the game was limited to the board only!!
Now this is a must buy. Good review!

Nice review. Looks like a sure pass for me. I've never liked games where I have to record stuff on little sheets. Blech. Gameplay does seem more interesting than, for example, the Settlers dice game but I know I can buy something a lot more entertaining for $28.

Not a bad point. It's listed as a variant but I think it's a bit more than that.

I could be wrong, but I think that if you were so inclined you could swap out the pegs for cribbage pegs. That is, if the ones that come with the game are not to your liking... I've played a number of games of Roll Through the Ages in its play-test form and really liked it. It also really appealed to my fiance.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Hey Tom! Great review! One of your best in my opinion.

From the Boards and Bits advertisement:

Roll Through the Ages $18.80
The price of this game used to be fixed. If you paid $29.90 for this game you are a victim of price-fixing and an unscrupulous retailer.
