Hi

My GF really likes this game."It's because of the dice" she says. The theme is not that important.

So can you help me find a game like Elder Sign?

Thanks in advance

Würfel Bohnanza is a great game with a similar but different take from ES.

+1 for King of Tokyo. You really have to change strategy quickly depending on what you roll. The one minus is player elimination, but the game is so quick that it's only a minor minus. It can be a pretty long time with a 6-player game though, but fortunately you can still participate by giving 'good' advice to the remaining players.

It's all about the dice.
But it's not like Elder Sign.

Check out To Court the King. It's all about dice and cards.

You start with 3 dice, and you can get more by obtaining some character cards that allow you to have more. Objective of the game is to roll 7 of a kind. Yikes!

Thank you all so much!

I saw there is a expansion for Elder Sign - is it worth the money?

Catan dice game is a nice variation on yahtzee.
+1 king of tokyo
+1 quarriors (tons (the metric sort) of dice with this one, and all of them custom and pretty)

the elder sign expansion is prolly worth the money in terms of materials,
but it seems to be mostly more of the same; more monsters, locations etc.
the question is: do you want more ES?

if not, king of tokyo seems to be the king of dice games currently,
but it works best with larger groups (4-6).

if she has an urge to collect unique and pretty dice, quarriors seems
like a must have.
as i recall the game is like a deck building game, but with dice.

It is unplayable with 2 players. (Starting player wins in 90+ % of the games.)

I know we are in the minority but me and my gf play it with 2 and really enjoy it. We only allow one point for staying in Tokyo as well as give the 2nd player cubes for going second. It seems to balance out. Sure it's way better with more people but it can still be a fun tug of war type battle.

Ofc you can make it playable with to by the use of house rules but if you use the regular rules the first player rolls a claw and goes to Tokio and stays there until he has won.
