Alex:Through the Ages


Larry: Dice City by AEG

What it is: "Die Crafting” game where the dice themselves change the city you acquire and build each round.

Why it's fun: Die rolling, fun city building, fun puzzle aspects, with accessible but rewarding game play. I.e. looking back over your plans however well they went at the end of a round has been satisfying for me!


So I first acquired and played this one a little over a year ago and am glad that I did, once I played it I decided to get the expansions for more content. But it's not NECESSARY to have a good time with what's in the box. A comparison is the obvious Kingsburg from Fantasy Flight games, whereas that one eschews to the heavier end of the spectrum, this one tackles the same genre of general play in a lighter way TONE wise. The play is varied without as many moving parts, and the colorful and slightly more playful art style backs this up.

Verdict: Get this one if you like dice rolling, have or have played Kingsburg and want a different implementation of the same theme (dice rolling city building) and or are looking for another soloable game with depth enough to be fun, without being all that thinky!


Beyond the Box - Sleeves, Mats, Dice, customized. This episode: Aftermarket Insert/Storage solutions, and alternate carry methods.
