I dislike seeing good games with few reviews. So here is a very quick review for Octodice, just to get some more positive word out there:
It's themed after Aquasphere, but plays very differently.
It plays very quickly: about 10 mins or less.
It is a Yahtzee style game: throw dice, try to make the results fit as best they can.
There is also an upgrades system, to make future rolls more flexible/profitable.
As expected, there is loads of luck, and the skill resolves around making the most of dice rolls, and balancing probability/reward of future rolls.
There is some work to do during other player turns, as some opportunity exists to copy other player rolls--a nice touch, as one also needs to roll whilst keeping those opportunists in mind.
Also a solid solo game, aiming to beat one's own prior scores.
I like to keep this game near by, as it is short enough that I can reach over and have a solo play at a whim.
*** A good game. I give it an 8 on the BGG scale (as a better-than-most filler). It is different enough to attract the interest of the grizzled boardgamers I know, and has enough decision making to let them nod and scratch their chins, while they ponder what to get stuck into next ***
