Subject: Similiar games to Elder Sign, Age of War and Dragon Slayer? rss

Hey everyone

I'm a huge fan of Elder Sign, Age of War and Dragon Slayer. I really like the core mechanic of rerolling and droping a die if you didn't get the right result. I also really like the manipulation aspects of Elder Sign. Sadly I couldn't find a subcategory for this mechanic in the BGG-DB though.

I'm looking for games with similiar mechanics, especially more complex games like Elder Sign. Maybe someone can help me with this matter?

Well these aren't exactly rolling and dropping a die, but they do have rolling and rerolling to try and get what you want a limited number of times:

Pandemic: The Cure
King of Tokyo
Run, Fight, or Die!
Zombie Dice

How about Tiny Epic Galaxies?

I great little engine building game that gives you lots of options and chances to reroll.

You might try Bang the Dice game as well. It's not quite 'drop a die to reroll' but each reroll potentially locks dice into bad things.

Thanks for all the feedback!

I forget to mention, that king of tokyo and Bang the dicegame are already in my collection. I've checked the other suggestions and espicially Tiny Epic Galaxies looks really promising. It's time to watch some reviews of those games, thanks everyone!

I really really recommend Star Wars: Galaxy Rebellion it uses the same dice mechanism as Age of War and Elder Signs, but the results carry over to next turn and can be used by your opponent. And wooden dice.

Thief's Market just recently came out. Half the game is rolling dice (and stealing dice!). It's a dice/card game where you spend dice to buy cards which help manipulate your die rolls, and earn you points. 3-5 players.
