Low amount of white die drawn and armor cards must have been discarded during setup (I don't look unless a card allows me to--I like to be surprised of my outcome).

Can you break down the score as you count it?
Only my 5th game of roll player, so could have gotten something wrong.

I could be wrong, but this is how I've totalled your score:

Atribute Goals
12

Class Colour Dice
4

Alignment Card
3

Backstory Card
6

Armor Cards
9

Trait Cards
5

Then as the custom rules for this challenge state, deduct 1 reputation for each skill card you have, so -1 in your case.

You are right, think I forgot the +1 from the armor matching my class color.

Turn 1: Disguise comes up. Well, that's an easy choice for the Rogue.

I bought Weak and swapped it for:
* Confident
* Humble
* Fearless
(rebuying Weak each time, great that it wanted to send alignment to the right)

I also bought Courageous and swapped it for:
* Honorable

I was collecting arbitrary valued Green dice for Dexterity with the idea to find Levitate, the second scroll was a bit late in the game. Too bad about not taking a red die; I had a large amount of XP I could have used to move dice about. I certainly didn't need it all for the monster fight...



I've only just bought the monsters and minions expansion, so there's a good chance I'm wrong here, but isn't your score 42? I've calculated it as follows;

Monster
8

Attribute Goals
9

Class Colour Dice
2

Alignment Card
3

Backstory Card
3

Armor Cards
0

Trait Cards
18

This challenge also states each skill card is worth -1 reputation at the end, so in your case -1.

I was rolling along in this session, but then a lack of blue dice throughout the game left me short of the full backstory. I believe only three blue dice came out at all, and two of those were in the same round. I figured I’d see more so I eschewed both of them and wasn’t able to get another in time.

I got the alliterative trait trio of Famous, Foolish and Fearless, and generally avoided skill cards with the one exception. I didn’t see where the skills on offerwould definitely get me more than the -1 point they bring at the end in this particular challenge. I picked up Move Silently primarily because I was afraid I would not get the second required scroll card, and it did come in very handy in the final round; without it, I’d have lost the challenge with just one scroll.

I murdered three minions, gaining the trophy for each of them to “reveal” the adventure cards. I was able to roll 8 combat dice in the final round, along with some XP left over for rerolls. I finished with two sixes, but these rerolled to a 5 and a 4, and I still had just enough for 26 without using my two honor tokens.

These challenges are quite fun and have helped to keep Roll Player fresh for me. I am eagerly awaiting the upcoming expansion.

I stumbled early on when I rolled three 1s against my second minion, the Giant Rat, and and the re-rolled another 1. Then I sweated it out as no scrolls appeared until the last few turns (and the dice stole Move Silently when I grabbed the perfect green 6 that turn). I tried to avoid skills but Concentrate was too useful to pass up and Search let me get my purple Wisdom die and fulfilled my Loyal trait. All in all, not a very successful game for me.

(Earned 6 stars from quashing the Giant Troll)

Greedy ended up helping so much I ran out of coins. Need to ransack more from my Raiders of the North Sea game.

This was 2nd playthrough tonite; first one was horrible with just 26 points. Dice rolled in my favor in Game 2, although I struggled with the backstory.

Really love this challenge each month. It keeps me getting the game to the table and never feels like a chore.

Quick question (didn’t see it in rules): I assume promo cards aren’t “legal” in the challenge since not everyone has them?

Ahh, my promos arrived in a separate mailing from my Monsters and Minions order and I didn't realize they were Lockup ones!
thanks!!!

You are right. I suspect I was thinking I had hit the Charisma goal. But 16-2 = 14 so I did not.

In my second try, with the help of my scrolls I collected a full set of leather armor. I also rolled well against the minions and collected enough experience to get 2 dexterity actions at the end which let me complete my back story.

I bought the M&M expansion last week and have played countless games to try and beat the current leader but it’s so much harder than the base game! Lots more interesting decisions to make I think.

Anyway, I think this is the best I can do:

You know you're in for a treat when the starting roll looks like in the below screenshot

I absolutely demolished the troll. I had like half of all of the combat dice. Apart from this, there isn't anything I would brag about. I liked the little rules changes. Being able to know the location, obstacle and attack cards from the start of the game is a real advantage.

The Rogue's ability to ignore Alignment moves and the special rule for this month made the skills too tempting! I took a 3 point penalty. I only used Move Silently once, but I used it to buy Search out of the discard pile after it came up when I had 0 gold. I used Search 2 or 3 times to hit Honest in all 3 columns for 9 points so that was worth it.

The unsung hero of this session was Reckless. It allowed me to have 3 stats I dumped low dice into without losing Reputation and gave me targets for the -1 half of Acrobatics.


08 Attributes
04 Class Die
03 Alignment
06 Backstory
04 Armor
17 Traits: 6 Reckless, 9 Honest, 2 Proud
-3 Skills special rule
