Caylus with dice. Scratches not the same but a complementary itch as Homesteaders.

This game takes dice management to the next level. The board has 6 spots each for military, religious and civil influence. Players who have workers in these areas will get to roll dice of that color on their turn. After each player rolls all their dice they're placed on the table and used to pay for actions but first they must fight off any enemies (black dice) and events. This is where the fun begins. Besides the dice themselves there are two other currencies: influence points and money. Players can pay these to flip dice, steal dice, re-roll dice etc. On a players turn he can try to displace others in one of the dice spots or pay for one of the many cards available - which give special powers, money, influence, etc. You can also use dice to defeat enemies and earn victory points.

Overall, it's a very engaging game with a lot of interaction and some meaty tactical decisions. The dice and their values are used in a variety of ways. One of the better games to come out in 2010.

Love the dice, the influence track, actions & strategies to choose from. Watch out for combos! Build them for yourself, guard against your opponents getting them. Only one play, but I hope for many more.

This is a fantastic game. I've played it 4 times, and it's gotten better each time. Although there's a large amount of randomness with the dice rolling, it really doesn't *feel* all that random most of the time. The ability to manipulate dice & purchase dice from other players adds some strategy. It's a very player-interactive game, with multiple pathways to gain points. There are a lot of different mechanics going on in this game, which makes it fairly complex. They flow quite well once you understand how they work together, but I would not recommend this for a starter game, and even casual gamers familiar with things like Settlers or TTR may find it daunting at first.

The dice-as-resources mechanic is a great twist on this engine-builder, and the game itself is gorgeous.
