Kickstarted. Played the Prototype with Doug. This game is great. It's amazing the amount of choices rolling 4 dice and spending them like currency creates. and being able to modify Dice is very rewarding

This is a great game. Consider getting the expansion with it too, it definitely makes things interesting with the expansion and is well worth it! Kudos to Doug Bass for getting this game to the people!

One of the best games of 2013, I think. It doesn't seem like much, you've only got a couple actions to plant, water and harvest, but the way they chain together just makes for a really elegant and compelling package. I love how you water or harvest something and it affects everything with a lower value in a chain. The set collection aspect adds a nice touch to make the choices of what you plant more interesting.

A cool dice and tile-laying game that suffers from the same downtime problem as Alien Frontiers. However, turns seem to go faster in Garden Dice, because you only ever have four dice to resolve, and your options are sometimes limited by what you roll.

My first game backed on Kickstarter and one with incredible production value (except for the woven baggies). The luck factor unimpressed some that I have played it with, but most of us enjoy it quite a bit. The creator seems like a nice guy, he replied to a whole load of my questions.

Caught me by surprise. It's a wonderful game, best played with 3 or 4 people. Would give it a 10 if the sundial's rules were a little less beneficial.

Give the sundial its own tile. One side is regular and the flipside shows a shadowed-out image. When "sunny," you get to change two dice by ONE pip. When shadowed, one die ONE pip.

I like the game to be a little more random, believe it or not.

Aside from the sundial issue, it's an incredibly good game. Will enjoy for a long time.

The finely tuned mechanics won me over and turned my into a true convert. Extremely well designed. Love the strategy afforded by limiting every possible move to the dice rolls. Long may the designer create new titles.

Good game. My maiden game I messed up a rule and made it harder than it needed to be, but it still worked. Good design, with a lot of interaction. I am pretty sure this will work well with my wife, despite the direct confrontation, since it does "build" things up.

Dice strategy game in the same vein as Alien Frontiers. There is a cool combo-y tile laying system which might appeal to fans of puzzle/match 3 games.

I liked this a lot with 2 players. People with AP can slow it down a lot as you're selecting actions from combos of dice, and considering optimal placements to leech off of the actions of others. The fact that 4 sets of dice aren't included upsets me, and makes me dock a half point or so... only sort of joking.

A great mix of luck and strategy means that it's fun for gamers and non-gamers alike.

It's also quite possible to include and exclude various parts of the game (sundial,rabbit/bird,gnome) etc. to make it simpler for younger folk or those new to gaming.

Definitely at the mercy of the dice,but there are some interesting strategy decisions that are there only because there is the possibility of bad luck. Refreshing player interaction nastiness. Great theme implementation. Overall a fun and original game. Note: it's heavier than the theme and box art imply.

A dice placement/utilization game that knows how to not outstay its welcome. Meaningful decisions each turn, without extended downtime. Significant player interaction and various strategies all in a remarkable presentation. Like Carcassonne or Ticket to Ride, you can play this as a friendly family game or as a more cutthroat gamer's game.

One last note, the components, graphic design, etc. for this title are amazing (you wouldn't guess it was the first title from a new publisher).

Light dice game, with some cool area control elements. I enjoy the set collection aspect of this game, as well as the chaining effect when watering and harvesting. Can be played peacefully or with the bloodthirsty rabbits/birds.

An easy pick when looking for a light, family style board game.

I enjoy this solid tile laying game, with dice rolled and used as actions. It's a little on the thinky side, and runs a little long for 3 or 4 players. It does scale just fine for 2, and I prefer it that way.

What a cute and fun game. Easy to play and using the special tiles can be such an advantage. I love dice games so this is right up my ally. Using the sundial helps you make the dice another number so you can put your seeds in a better area. Great art work on the tiles and board. Fun family game. I need to get the expansion now.
