Rolling dices.
The faces of the dices determines the action.
First you have to collect the movement in order to collect the discovery point. Some interactions when you use opponent dices.

Dice game, which has Some interesting choices: do i choose a discoveriecard for collecting sets or straight point. Do i use other persons dices, with a risk that they night be call back

Essen release Quined Games : https://www.quined.nl/

Played 2 player game.
Cards can be used
to build with combination of resources (10 types are available) or
to get resources by putting it on a level of a card. This can be done by built cards or yourself of your opponents cards. Sometimes by laying a card on a level, the resource will be available all the time, until the building is destroyed.
A building card has several level. Each level contains resources and scoring point.
In the beginning on your turn you can destroy one of your building and score the point of the level of this card.
At the end of your turn you get one card or three cards (if you destroyed building). When you pass and do no actions, you can get cards until you have 7 cards in your hand.

Most scoring points wins.

8. Board Game: Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King [Average Rating:7.48 Overall Rank:153]

http://de.trictrac.net/news/plattchen-legen-preis-bestimmen-...

Isle of Skye, one of the most beautiful places in the world: Soft sand beaches, gently sloping hills, impressive mountains: the landscape of Isle of Skye is breathtaking and fascinates everyone.

In this tile-laying game 2 to 5 players are the chieftains of 5 famous clans. The players try to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible. But in each game only 4 of the 16 scoring cards will be scored. Each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies.

To have enough money is useful in all games: In each turn the players can buy a tile from another player. The seller determines the price, but to do it wisely is the most interesting part of this game: A high price will lead to wealth, if someone buys this tile, but if there’s no buyer, the seller will lose the money spend on this tile.

And in the end the player with the best kingdom will become the sovereign of the island, not the richest player!

Isle of Skye is a gateway game for the whole family.

9. Board Game: Lutèce [Average Rating:6.85 Overall Rank:4754]

Game : Lutece
Designer : Nicolas Sato
Publisher : Superlude Editions / Black Rock Games

look at http://ludovox.fr/tout-savoir-sur-lutece-le-futur-superlude/

Bruno Faidutti about Lutece:
"Neither the setting nor the basic systems of Lutèce are very original, since the game is about bidding for buildings and artisans trying to get majority in various types of activities. The game, however, has a very light feel and is full of small clever systems. The half-secret auction system, in which players play a bidding card face down but can then add gold pieces over it, makes for some tricky bluffing. Lutèce, with its fun mix between tactics, psychology and a little bit of luck, is a highly enjoyable little game"
