Sidescroller (Working title)

Components
Hexagonal Board
7 Dice
1 distinct die (I'm using a color die, but any will suffice)

Mechanics
Dice Placement
Set Collection
Push-Your-Luck

Idea
The board has 6 sides and is rotated based on the roll of the distinct die. Each side of the board will have 3 die places where only a specific number may be placed. Every die roll you must be able to place at least one die, if not you lose all your points. Points are earned by rummy-style set collection of dice numbers placed on the board.

Theme
I'm thinking since this game only has the one component to design I can make multiple themed boards. Each of the six sides can be a different scene or world.
The original will be an 8-bit sidescrolling video game (My 4-year old's suggestion)
Other themes could be Space, Zoo, Sports, Princess, etc.

Thoughts?

When I first saw the name of this I was thinking of something completely different. And since you're not doing it it's probably the next idea I'm going to try to develop.

BTW, yours sounds really interesting. Looking forward to see where this one goes.

What theme were you expecting?

My 1st thought for sidescroller was a series of cards that you have to face as if you were in a sidescrolling video game, and then I thought if I did a hexagonal board and added a die I could replace the cards.

Didn't end up having time to get this developed enough to even start playtesting, so I'm going to save it for next year.
