This game is a solid "OK" in my book. Apparently we were all playing very "nicely" and didn't take advantage of the animals we could use to eat up other player's seeds and vegetables, but to be honest it never seemed worth it. We quickly figured out what we had to do to manipulate the die in our favor, and it was a very interesting mechanic with using the dice as our actions each turn based on what we rolled. Overall it was a cute, but somewhat forgettable game.

Pros: If you like Scoville, I think you'll enjoy this one.
Cons: If you don't like Scoville, I don't think you'll enjoy this one. Can run a bit long, I had trouble keeping track of what everything did and what I could use the dice for (or not).

Plays at Con: 1

We started our Saturday with a early game of Garden Dice with the publisher. The happy art style hides a very thinky game of strategic chain reactions. We were mostly happy with just building, but boy if the critters happened, this could have gotten cut throat.

First play for Nancy and I. If Doug had played before it was incorrect.

I was the only one to put a critter on the board -- but mostly I didn't have a better use for two 1's

I ended the game. If I had not, César would have had a lot more points.

I think this is a solid little game that anyone who can grasp simple math can have fun with. My 7 year old nephew had a blast playing it when I first bought it, and it has the added bonus of being entertaining for adults as well.

About Garden Dice and Garden Dice: The Card Expansion:

1) What is it?
Garden Dice is a game about buying seeds, planting them, watering them to become vegetables, harvesting them, scoring some points, get some sets and collections and, possible, using sundials, scarecrows or gnomes do help you out, or birds or rabbits to mess with the others - but this is costly and hardly the game will devolve into the curse of the were rabbit. This isn't a Thunderdome of vegetables, where two seeds enter and one vegetable goes out, leaving a patch of churned dirt and a seed, that was full of hope, now lifeless, behind.

In Garden Dice players will roll dice and use them to do the actions, the best way possible. The goal is to harvest veggies, which score, and again score in the end, by sets (having all types) and by collections (having lots of one type). Is all about points.

The main twist to the basic tile placement and set collection, is the chaining. When watering or harvesting, these actions will chain with nearby seeds and veggies, respectively, which can be used by players, not only to make one action worth more (by doing it several times), but also to try to use the actions of others to get the things you want. Therefore, positioning is key.

Garden Dice is easy to teach and to play (even for kids under 13, which is the recommended age for the game - we have one much younger, and he played well enough, needing little help and grasping all the basic actions, even if the overall strategy escaped him a little). The art and graphics are very well done and is pretty to see it on the table - it has a nice and pleasant "family" look. The player aid is of a kickass class, really great - is what a player aid should aim to be.

The game runs for a little too long. Nothing major, however - it would be nice if it ended in around 45-50 minutes, but it usually ends somewhat over one hour. And we found that the Garden Dice: The Card Expansion is, to us, key to make the gameplay shines more.

Still, Garden Dice works well, has layers and possibilities and it provides the positive interaction - you usually affect the others in a good way, by helping them with watering and harvesting actions, more than with harmful actions, which serves well for a family-oriented game (although, Garden Dice can also fit in gamers group also).

While the dice can turn some people off Garden Dice, the game provides ways to deal, up to a point, with bad die rolls. The sundial and gnome (and expansion, which comes with the base game) allow to manipulate the numbers on the dice, and the positioning of the scarecrow can make places on the board better for you, even when considering low numbers rolled. Yet, there is luck in the game and rolling high tends to be considerable better most of the time.

Robert ducked out of the group and his mum (Tanya?) subbed in for a game of Garden Dice. It was fun trying to figure out the best placements for your crops, etc as you're trying to leach off other people's actions but maximum points might be located elsewhere - but this all assumes the dice are kind to you too (although you can choose to mitigate the dice rolls a bit). Might need another play or two to figure out how to use the vermin to best effect
