Carcassonne: The Dice Game (2011)Carcassonne is exactly what it says it is. . . a dice game. I was given this game at the CGE booth at GenCon 2014 for helping out during a rush and retrieving an item they needed at the checkout for a costumer. It was a very special moment for me... getting a game for free. After that, the free games just kept coming. Mostly the games helped to pad out of my gaming club for my kids. This one, though, was not for them and has stayed in my collection. I might, at some point, take it up to the club. But for now it's my Day 2 game.
You roll the dice. You build some cities and you score points (first to 42 wins). Easy Peasy. It's about as quick a dice game as you can get. A nice quick game on those nights when you have to stay late with kids for Forensics practice, get home and walk, you have your special TV shows to watch that night, and still get in a game. Redic loved it!
