Spy Alley Dice GameSpy Alley Dice Game

$12.99 SRP



In Spy Alley Dice, each player becomes a spy for their given country. Players roll the dice for a chance to guess their opponents identities. If a player rolls 3 of a kind, they may take a guess of any player as the spy that is on the three dice. If a player rolls five of a kind, they may either guess a player as any spy, or they may take a big chance and try to accomplish their mission. To accomplish their mission, the player that rolled the 5 of a kind must ask each player in a clockwise manner if they want to guess him as the spy identity on the dice. If no player is willing to make a guess and the player is the spy on the dice, that player has accomplished his mission and wins the game. Otherwise, the last player remaining in the game is the winner.

Garden Dice

Release Date: Nov 2012

$ 38.95

Garden Dice is a family strategy game that combines dice rolling, tile laying, and set collection. The game board depicts a garden as a 6×6 grid where seed and vegetable tiles are placed using dice rolls as coordinates. Players take turns using the dice to plant, water, and harvest five different types of vegetables with differing point values, from the lowly squash to the mighty eggplant. The game’s chaining mechanic allows players to water or harvest multiple tiles using a single action, enabling players to build upon each others’ chains. Players can also use bird and rabbit tiles to eat other players’ seed and veggie tiles, but not without paying a small penalty. Two other special tiles, the sundial and the scarecrow, allow players to modify dice rolls or protect their own tiles. Bonuses increase the values of tiles as they are harvested, and additional points are awarded at the end of the game for collecting sets. The player with the most points when the last tile is taken wins.

This Sounds like a good game to get and play with the kids. This is Meridae Games first game try it out and lets see what they come up with next.

Image Copyright of GCT StudiosI have finally managed to read through the quick start rules for Bushido The Game. While reading the rules I kept thinking does this work?
