I am looking to pick up a dice action game along the style of the ones below. Seeing if there are any I have missed.

Alien Frontiers: Being very hard to find and the various editions and add ons make what looks to be an awesome game less appealing.

Kingsburg:The expansion makes this a fun game, I have played it but fear it might get stale fairly soon.

Troyes:I owned it, I felt the 4 players was too chaotic, and the whole game was too short.

Castles of Burgandy:fun little game, but the die mechanic in this doesn't feel like it offers enough choice for long term engagement for me.

Bora Bora:Have not played this, but I am concerned that it looks like players will be fighting the dice to try to achieve goals more than making the dice work for them. That isn't to say it is a bad game, just not what I am looking for.

Are there others out there I have missed? Am I way off base on any?

Livingstone - it's different in that you're all choosing from the same pool of dice. Once you choose, you can't take a dice with a lower number, you so have to balance quantity versus quality (if you really need a specific die).

Alien Frontiers is worth the wait but I don't recommend it with more than 3 people. Garden Dice is actually a slick game as well.

I am vaguely remembering a recent release that had a stone-henge feel to it,but I can't remember the name, any help?

It's also one of the main mechanics in War of the Ring (Second Edition).

Alea Iacta Est and Seasons are two that might work.
