Why It's On The List

  • Designer Wolfgang Kramer took his classic 6 Nimmt game & converted it into a delightful hoot of a board game - and one I'd rather play than the original card game.

Tips & Tricks:

    • One of the key decisions in the game is "when do I buy more tiles"? Making that decision correctly gives you a better chance at victory.
    • There is actually more visible information in Tanz than in a standard game of 6 Nimmt... and the ability to pull back tiles when you step in the poop can really mess with what happens next.


    • You do not need to have played 6 Nimmt/Take 6 in order to understand "The Dance of the Bulls". Everyone is pretty clear that you don't want to step in the poop.
    • A new 6 Nimmt board game was released in Germany back in 2019... while I enjoyed it, I like this one better.
    • This is the second of three Wolfgang Kramer games on this countdown... and weirdly it's right next to another of his designs (#68 - Downforce).
