Another quality Easy Play game. This is probably the least complex, least strategic of the ones I've played. However, when you play with all four players, it creates excitement similar to a craps table. Everyone is yelling at every roll and waiting for their turn. This filler tends to drag out a bit with two players but shines with four.

A perfect example of the Easy Play line: nice presentation, luck and strategy. Would be much better with the frog theming it had at one point.

Numeri is a fun racing game, which could easily be rethemed as bicycle racing (you have breakaways, the main group working together to catch anybody getting ahead etc). Numeri's only problem is that sometimes the luck factor gets overwhelming and your decisions don't really matter or you can't even get to make them.

Another fun filler in the Easy Play line. Great to play with the kids, Takes about 2 minutes to read the rules before you're on your way. Quite a bit of luck involved with the die rolls, but some tactics come into play later in the game.
3 player game worked very well. The 2p game I played had a runaway leader problem due to some lucky early rolls to get all of one color's pieces on the board followed by multiple chains of 3 allowing extra turns.

I acutally like this alot. Yeah, there is a fair amount of luck, and you can lose sight of scoring actual points, rather than trying to move ahead, but I think this is a great filler.

You can see the inspiration for Cartagena as soon as you sit down to play Numeri, and it's just as entertaining. In fact, the die actually makes Numeri more accessible, and thus Numeri is packaged for kids. Don't get left behind! The perfectly-themed original, Fröscheln, is even more a rare and special treat.

Clever game. Interesting tactical options. Trade-off between trying to advance high valued pieces which move less often or easier-to-move lower valued pieces. Make sure your moves don't help others too much.

{80+ plays • 2, 3, and 4 player} Once again, Easy Play puts out a good, solid little filler. (and thanks to BrettSpielWelt for giving me the chance to play the crap out of this).

Way better as a 3 or 4-player game - the 2-player game can be a crazy lopsided suck - there are juuust enough decisions here to make winning a skill (or feel like it, anyway), balanced by the 10-20 minute game time which takes the sting out of any dollops of die luck that may come up.

And yeah, even in the 3 or 4-player game, a handful of bad early rolls can totaly turn you into a participating observer, but that's the exception, I've found, not the rule.

Also, it's definitely one of those games you play again right away, if you're one of those people that like/do that.

Nettes Spiel, was sich schnell und einfach spielen läßt. Gepaart von Strategie und Würfelglück kann man das super gut zwischen durch spielen. Aber es bekommt von mir eine 6, da es mir auf Dauer zu einfach ist und ich keinen Langzeitspielspaß darin sehe.

BSW play only.

A pretty simple roll and move, sort of like a quick version of Verflixxt in some ways. There are few or no choices at the beginning, until someone has crossed the magic line. Fortunately that happens relatively soon, so you do have to think a bit about which piece(s) to move to maximize your chances for taking repeated turns.

Not a heavy game by any means, and after a few plays I don't think it's as interesting as Big Points or Finito. But it is an interesting diversion and it does cause some fun anticipation-angst when you roll the die!

My highest score so far: 201 (3er).

--- Summary ---
- roll d6; may move your matching-numbered token (* is wild but moves only one token)
- move it to the next free space on the track
- after any player's token has crossed a line (varies with number of players playing), rolls of 3 4 or 5 may be split between 2 of your tokens (3->1-2, 4->1-3, 5->1-4 or 2-3), but only if you can move both these tokens
- if, with your move, you create 3 adjacent tokens of your color, go again (may do it repeatedly)
- game ends when last 3 spaces of the track are occupied
- final scores (for each token):
... (token number) x (number on that token's space)
... the multiplier for tokens never played to the board is -5
... highest sum wins

Probably it's more fun on BSW since you can just click fast through all non-decision moves. I guess it would be to slow / boring with real dice.

A lot of people complain about the luck of the die in this game. While it is there, I think good play is vitally important. Poor decisions will invalidate good rolls. Granted, if you roll too poorly, you are in trouble. Like its relatives (finito and big points) it is relatively quick. [01/08/2011]

Coming in second after Los banditos, Numeri is a solid entry in the easy play series. The game is a remake of an earlier publication and the rules are simple and straightforward. This game share many similarities with Cartagena where a group of pawns are moving on a linear track leapfrogging over each other in order to arrive at the finish line. Pawn movement is governed by a die roll, but the die roll can be tactical split apart to move more than one pawn each turn. The trick in this game is to move most pawns as a group. Lagging pawns will certainly be left behind since movement is retarded by not bring able to leapfrog. Excellent and difficult decisions to be made on a small board.

I have played this more times than I have recorded plays. This is an interesting filler. You are trying to move your numbered pawns to scoring spots. At the end you score the pawn number times the spot it is on. The die has 1-5 plus a wild so you move according to a die roll. You can split the die between 2 pawns after the early part of the game. This makes it easier for you to move the 1 than the 2, 2 than the 3, 3 than the 4, and the 4 than the 5. So in most games your 4 and 5 on on lower multipliers. Good game.

Random die-rolling filler that I got to play at Lobster Trap XV. Some strategy, but not really my cup of tea, and that's saying something considering how much I love dice. It's ok, but there are lots of other fillers that I would pick before this one.

Super random, but still has a little charm to it. In the end, I'm not sure you really make any important decisions... mostly just rolling the die and making the obvious move. However, I still found it a half way pleasant method of killing a little time.

An ultra-light filler with pieces moving forward to the next empty space, which piece being dependent on your die roll. Your score is the value of your piece times the value of your end square so you want to progress your highest valued pieces as far as possible. Roll 1 (or a 2) and your move is automatic - move your 1 (or 2) to the next empty space. Your only choices come about when you roll high and you have the option to do a combination of tokens (adding up to that amount) rather than the high value piece rolled. And which piece to move when you roll a wild. Inputs to the decision are the length of the jump on offer, whether you're setting others up for big jumps, whether you land on a scoring space or not, and whether you can get 3 pieces together for another roll. But it's usually pretty straightforward and as a result this is real fluff, but it can still be enjoyable fluff as it's the right time length (10-15 minutes), living and dying by the dice with the occasional decision to make. The end-game moves can be pretty random as well, another reason not to get emotionally invested.

The 2 player version can be more interesting, with the opportunity to manipulate things so as to get a "train" of contiguous pieces together, leapfrogging them in concert so as to get multiple free moves, so there are better decisions to make re how and when to move which pieces. Still, fluff.

You have maybe 2-3 meaningful non-obviously decisions in the whole game. 1/2 of your turns will be without any choice at all. But worse of all, the game is a foregone conclusion at about the 1/2 way point. Still somewhat fun on BSW, where games can be played very fast.
