An adult version of peek-a-booh?! It may seem a bit simple but it also seems like a lot of fun!

Bought this together with Kenya. Don't know wheter it is a good game but since one of my nephews is crazy about penguins I am quite sure this will make the table quite often.

I have always liked the card game very much, but in our rounds, it never picks up speed for some reason. Hoping the dice version will help take care of that.

Intrigued by the minimalism of this design and the interesting scoring options. The artwork seems like an in-between job, though.

Being a Finca fan, it's obvious that this title tickled my interest. Similarly, it promises short and fast player turns while leaving enough room for decision making.

If you're gonna play a roll-the-dice-and-pick-your-score game, Yahtzee (or any other name it goes by) remains the best there is. This is the first time I come across a variant that seems worth spending a little more time with.

Sometimes you just trust a friend when (s)he gives advice on what games to buy after a demo round. Wasn't on my radar at any time but curious to give it a try now.

The mini-expansion was thrown in as a freebie with the game as our group went home with a couple of copies.

Based upon reading of the rules, I expect this to be a fun dice game in it's genre and may be even the best in the Amigo 'Würfelbecher' series thus far.

Picked this up a couple of weeks before Essen at my LFGS and have played it a couple of times since. It has the lightness AND the weight of 'Love Letter' with a 'Werewolves'-like ambiance in a 'Citadels'-like setting. It all ads up to something worth having and playing.

Stumbled into this one while looking into the details of 'Bang! The Dice Game'. Was not 100% convinced after reading the rules but for 9 euro's I think it is quite an original card game.

Was not 100% convinced by this one, but Dominique's enthousiasm for the game on 'De Tafel Plakt!' and the package deal with 'Lewis and Clark' made me by this one after all.
