Why It's On The List

  • Imagine Yahtzee crossed with Magic: The Gathering... using card powers to manipulate dice in order win favor with the King.

Tips & Tricks:

    • It's a little slow with 4 or 5 players... I like it best with 2 or 3.
    • You need dice - and a few dice manipulation powers. Going the other way (dice manipulation powers & a few dice) will lose you the game.

    Extras

    • Tom Lehman (the designer) showed me something nifty that makes me like the game even more - but my lips are sealed.

    So you have a blog that you created so you can shair your interests and experiences with a small amount of followers...but you won't shair a silly little seceret you learned for the game designer to make the game more fun?! Why would we want to read or follow your blog if your not going to be loal to your viewers?

    Part of reading a blog by someone who occasionally gets to hang out with game designers is acknowledging that I have information about prototypes & design ideas that I'm not allowed to talk about in any detail.

    Just know that Tom is playing with some stuff that (if published) could make To Court the King even better.
