Yesterday Seth Jaffee wrote lengthily about dice version of beloved game on his blog: http://sedjtroll.blogspot.com/
What do you think about that idea? I am not sure. I have mixed feeling. Similarly I have mixed feeling about Roll for the Galaxy, announced dice version of beloved Race for the Galaxy.
I am much more delighted with 2 announced expansion for EmDo.

To be sure, the Eminent Domain dice game idea is a similar but distinct game to Eminent Domain. It shares a lot, but will be a lighter, simpler version of the game.

I'm very happy with the expansions to Eminent Domain, both Escalation and Exotica. Escalation adds a lot, and is really intended for players who are very familiar with the base game. Exotica is less intense, and may be a better "next step" for players who found themselves overwhelmed by the tech cards at first, or who haven't fully explored all of the strategies the base game has to offer.

I like both of them, and they will be able to be combined as well!

hmmm... expantion is a good news and more of it, there are 2 of them coming along?
Are these expantions come in separate package?
I like the game and honestly this one is surely a keeper even most of my gaming groups do not perceive that the game is that good to be played the second time.
A dice game version might also interesting and look forward to it. The biggest contender would be Roll for the galaxy but must check them deeper.

I'm a sucker for dice games, so just bring it on.

Honestly, whenever I play a new game, I imagine how to do an "express" version with dice - probably due to the large number of blank indented dice I have laying around at home for pnp and self designed stuff.

But I'll certainly take the EmDo expansions first if I have to ...

Blank dice you say? I should (make and then) send you sticker files for EmDice so you can try it out and help me playtest

I would love to playtest as well. In fact, I've already made a photoshop file of the six different die faces...enough to print out for three players.
