Ever have that dream, the one where you're playing a board game, and then you wake up to find that it was all a dream?

Now, take that dream, and vividly remember it. Now, that dream, have it be that you're not only playing Dice City, but that you're teaching it to new players for your first game. Somewhat curious, you check the rules online on a whim, only to find that you had most of them very accurate.

I've never played or read the rules before, but I've watched Rahdo do his runthrough to get a feel for it, flipping through randomly. I remember more rules than Rahdo explained or went through, and can remember dreaming parts he flubbed a little (did not see video notes from my mobile phone). This is one of the four dreams I can remember within 2015.

Now I'm very confused - do I buy it to make it prophetic? Do I count the dream game as a play, and log it? What the heck is going on!?! I promised my wife I wouldn't buy any more games this year! If my dream self owns it, do I? Or have I fully descended into madness?

Absolutely - log the play!
If it happens on the dream plane, it occurred somewhere.

I am mostly vegetarian (seafood occasionally), and I abnormally have dreams that I eat bacon.
It's a strange feeling to wake up, able to taste it.
Or, in the dream to know I'm vegetarian and I don't eat bacon.
But I still do it.

I guess to answer the question about buying Dice City:
I still haven't bought and/or eaten bacon since I've dreamt about it… Or have I?

(The first time I had a dream where I ate bacon was just over 5 years ago.)

Bacon is the one good must vegetarians miss port my friends. Come to the meat side, we have bacon.

I had a game Sean this weekend but can't remember anything else except that vague memory I had one.

I don't think I've ever had this with a boardgame (a real one, anyway; I've made up several in dreams), but I've had this experience with a roleplaying game, back in the 90s.

Who needs comprehension when you have bacon?

Make sure you put this on your wish list for your wife for your next gift

That way she can get it for you and you still keep your promise and you'll make your dream reality

I think it would be funny to log it. Log it as is - as a dream. Someone will run into that sometime while scanning the logs and get a good laugh out of it.

I thought you were posting about the dream where you're standing atop an Aztec temple in sun-god robes surrounded by thousands of women throwing tiny pickles at you.

Or am I the only one who has that dream?

Mine is always I am at bgg.con and everyone is playing a game, but none of them look familiar. And when I finally find one that I want to play, I wake up.

And I'm usually naked.

Bacon smells better than it tastes, and is irrationally overrated compared to other delicious foods. Come at me.



My only dream is dropping like $1500 to buy my entire Wishlist at once. My first "play" session would just be to sit and stare at them. The 2nd would be unboxing everything. Only on the 3rd session would I consider playing anything.

You have no idea how freaked out I was to wake up, (1) remember a dream, (2) where I'm teaching a game, (3) that I've never played, (4) where I have the rules CORRECT (for the most part) for this game, and (5) I'm not allowed to get.

Got hit with a hefty household bill, so no sneaking money out (I don't need to, I've got enough now and coming via previous KS backings), however, now I really want to play the game in the waking world.

As for the bacon discussion, I've only this to say: https://youtu.be/wSReSGe200A

Your buying the wrong Bacon. But you are right that it doesn't compare to some other great dishes.
