This came in my email this morning.

Not a bad deal but shipping might kill it.

Both do sometimes go on sale a lot on certain sites. I wonder why.

Mal: Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us? Zoe: Big damn heroes, sir! Mal: Ain't we just.

Looks like Dice City is on clearance at Miniature Market for $22.
The expansion is part of their Christmas in July sale for $8.

So $30 for the pair, before shipping. Cheapest shipping is $5.95 (for just these two). So around $36 shipped, vs. Massdrop $34. Not a significant difference, but for someone looking for a deal it's better than a poke in the eye!

The game is really basic, but excellent!

I enjoy it as well, but it can drag with 4 players.

I'm playing it tonight along with Valeria Card Kingdoms. They share some similar mechanics. Two games will enter, but only one game will leave.

I like Dice City. But between the two, I'd go with Valeria. I do however own both games.

I own Machi Koro, but feel like I should dump it in favor of either Dice City or Valeria. The problem is, I haven't tried either.

Sounds like Valeria is better-liked?

So far, I have a 100% vote for Valeria over Machi Koro among everyone I've played with. Absolutely everyone has liked it a lot more.

I keep Machi Koro around for non-gamers. So that's a big consideration. Easy to teach and understand.

I really enjoy Dice City...there's a good amount of strategy there even though it's pretty simple to play!

It can be mean, but I feel the game discourages a player from being intentionally destructive to other players. When you have the choice to use military to disable someone's building, there's almost always a non-player target that will get you more points.
