Different feel from the auction-oriented board game but still so much fun. It plays very fast so we usually play the best 2 out of 3.

I'll play this anytime, anywhere.

What do I think? Just behind Roll Through the Ages as the best dice game. It doesn't have developments from RTTA, but it still lets people diverge on what they do.

And the scoring is very familiar to the Ra crowd. You can still chant Ra if you really want the round to end.

I liked it plenty and see it hitting the table a lot.

This game is a 7 if I'm playing with 4 players and probably about an 8.5 for a 2-player game. The speed of the 2-player game is awesome.


*********EDIT*********

I've bumped up to a 10. I love this game with any number of players. It's quick and violent with 2 players and changes a lot as the player number grows. The game becomes strategic and the focus changes to long term planning. It works great with any number of players and generally plays pretty quickly. I love this game.

Probably the best dice game I've ever played, and I am a fan of dice games. Better than Airships and To Court The King, and more interactive than Roll Through The Ages. Have not tired of it and, at this rate, never will.

An Excellent, Classy, Fun, Quick-Playing, Press-Your-Luck Euro!! (A category not easily and successfully done, IMO.)

This is Knizia's Egytian-Themed Ra, but with Yahtzee-Style Dice-Rolling and with No Auctions. It really really works!! It's casual, light, fun, tactical, slightly strategic, easy to play and teach, colorful, well-designed, and has a great feel to the gameplay. Custom Dice !! You don't have to like RA at all to love this!!

Casual Game!! Beer-N-Pretzels Game!! Family Game!! Gateway Game-ish.

11-26-12-haven't played this as much lately (cult of the new plus obsession with Kingdom Builder!) but it really is a fun game and glad we got it out today. won't let it go so long again without playing!

12-31-11-This is absolutely our favorite game. No one EVER says no to another game of Ra Dice. The more we play, the better we get and the tighter our scores. Many dismiss this as a dice fest and Yahtzee cone, but once you're familiar with the scoring, you can usually play it much more smartly than would seem at first glance.

Played 3 times today, once 3p, and twice 2p. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a favorite! At first it seemed confusing, but then it came together very quickly. Still couldn't seem to pull off a clean win though. Tied for 1st once (3p) and lost the other 2 games, the last one by one point!

Casey's favorite because it's fun and so quick.

This is an outstanding game. The different areas of scoring (which mimic the original Ra) create many juicy decisions in this dice game that utilizes the Yahtzee reroll mechanic. Each game seems to play out interestingly, providing its own "narrative". Good, meaningful decisions; just enough luck; high replay value; quick playimg time. A perfect dice game.

Good game! The various scoring mechanisms keep things interesting. With 2 the Nile and Pharoah tracks are a bit too easy, but with 3-4 this gets very competitive and tough on all fronts.

Initial rating of 9. It's RA...with dice. Shocking, I know. Knizia has taken one of my favorite (if not #1, certainly top 3) games and turned it into a quick and easy dice game while retaining a lot of the tension of the original. Nice components, great artwork, and superb gameplay. This has become my new favorite dice game.

Has replaced Choice and even Decathlon as my top favorite dice game. Like many of the latest Reiner games, this plays very quick and despite short rules offers surprisingly deep gameplay.

If you like dice games like Yahtzee and you like Ra, you must get this! Excellent synergy between the two. Scoring mechanism of Ra coupled with a nice variant of the Yahtzee mechanic. After nine plays, still enjoying this. One game seemed to go on too long since 1-2 suns were rolled very infrequently. This resulted in everyone maxed out on Pharaohs and Niles and the monuments being almost completely built be everyone. Still, that's dice for ya!
EDIT after >30 plays, this is proving to be a go-to filler. Very quick with 2.
