Dice Forge is a dice crafting game that supports up to four players. With many components, it may seem complex, but it is an easy game to pick up and play! However, the rulebook has a little more weight than it’s worth, so I would recommend watching a rules breakdown on YouTube. Expect a 45 minute play-through, which can vary with the number of players.
All players start with two dice, in which they roll every turn, even when they are not the active player (because of this, downtime is not an issue since you are still gathering resources). The active player rolls their dice and chooses to perform an action; like upgrading their dice or performing a heroic feat (purchasing cards). These cards can gain you victory points at the end of the game, have instant abilities, or recurring abilities that you can trigger during your turn. The game provides a second set of cards that offer more complex abilities after you have played a few games. The game ends after a few rounds, and you add up your victory points from cards you have collected! The dice are satisfying to roll, and after becoming attached to them after customizing them, you will want to keep playing and trying new strategies in the future. Dice Forge is an easy game to dive into, fun to play, and has a great replayablity factor.
Thanks for those who attended this past week, we hope to see players return to check out the other games we will be hosting! Next week we are playing Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr, a game where players are the nursing staff of a dying man who is tormented by his past. Gain his trust and uncover his memories in this cooperative story-driven game.
