A classic at my home.

**[Español]**Battle Line con dados y con mas combinaciones, al que le guste no se cansará de jugarlo.

Siempre quiero jugarlo. Junto con el Genesis y Can´t Stop los mejores juegos de dados que he probado. Tras numerosos juegos, puedo decir que es un magnífico y que es el mejor juego dados que se pueda recomendar a grosso modo, y eso que esperaba un juego malillo de Knizia.

Definitivamente este juego es casi un espejo al Battle Line en forma de dados, cambiando un poco de azar (calculado a la perfección) por una mayor rejugabilidad si cabe, y una mayor tensión (grandes finales) y más jugadas disponibles que salen más a menudo. El diseño del juego es impecable, estoy a la espera de que salga la versión multijugador, que tarde o temprano aparecerá.

Battle Line with dice- what more can you ask?? One of the best dice games I own along with Finito and Can't Stop. Quicker than it's bigger brother, but with more choices- plus the ability to abandon a losing battle and start a new one right away. I can't quite give it a 10 because I don't like that some columns are worth 3 points while others are only worth 1. I also prefer the certainty in that every number in every color is at least possibly in the deck versus the variability of the dice rolls. I also feel the straight is slightly overpowered.

This is a really good dice game. Excellent filler for two. I've called it "Battleline with dice", but I enjoy Los Banditos better.
One of my favorite Knizia games.

Similar to Schotten-Totten, but quicker and less complex. Of course it's more luck-based because of the dice replacing cards, but I don't mind, it's just a lot of fun and often players call for "just one more round".

Battle Line, the dice game. Nice, fast filler. More luck than Battle Line, but also shorter, so this is OK.

For the moment, my two-player game of choice. While it is simply Schotten-Totten with dice, the sum is much more than the parts. Summary: it is an excellent quick filler that has meet with universal acclaim in my group.

A fun little filler that plays fast and has enough decisions to feel like a game. Certainly very luck dependent, but a good time nonetheless. One of my more favored 2 player dice games. Initial rating 8.

A very nice little dice game, another winner from Knizia. It is little, very quick and simple to play, but as the rows fill up, it forces you into decisions. Definitely play again, for a 2 player game, it's a refreshing winner.

Yes, it's "Battle Line" / "Schottentotten" with dice, but much lighter and simpler than the original.
As a casual dice game for two it excels. (Silly name though - which language is this supposed to be? Certainly not Spanish, where it would be "Los Bandidos").

The comparison with Battle Line/Schotten Totten is inevitable. The play time is about the same, maybe a little bit quicker. There's more of a luck element and the strategy here is more simple. But it's still fun, a nice change of pace from the card game version and a lot of fun. I know there are some that don't like all these Knizia retreads but this one is quite a bit of fun.

A dice game that reminds me a bit of BattleLine without the special cards. The twist is that the players must draw the dice they will roll randomly from the bag, amking some combos possible and others not.

All in all a fairly fun and mindless dice roller but there are better ones out there.

Plays like a dice version of Schotten Totten, but not anywhere near as good (or skill based). Still a fun game, which packs a decent punch in its playing time of just a few minutes.

I prefer Battle Line/Schotten Totten over this one but it's a fun and very short diversion that can be played mindlessly but careful risk analysis, counting of chances helps you win most of the time. A good dice game adaptation of the games above and a lot more developed than the simple dice game adaptation of these games included in the book Dice Games Properly Explained (East-West).

Like everyone else says, this is "Battle Line - The Dice Game". You're trying to form combos on your side of various battles that beat the combos of your opponent, and this is done by drawing dice from a bag, rolling them, and then placing them.

There's a little less tension due to the "deck" of dice not being perfect information, and of course a lot more randomness in this game, but it's still a fun, short, two player filler.

Schotten Totten meets Shanghaien. I like both games, so I was quite confident I'd like Los Banditos. And I do, although it's the most luck-dependant of the three. It's also lighter and faster as a result.

Schotten-Totten with dice. Probably a nice variation if you're really into that game, not worth it otherwise. I think both games are OK, but I'm not a big fan of either. Knizia designed much better two-player games with similar complexity and playing time.
