And we are not talking craps....
I think we have used this game mechanic as a theme before, but not sure. It will be a real challenge for people like me, who find dice games a bit stressful, as they never seem to come up the way you need them to, when you need them to...LOL.
Some examples are: first and foremost, our very own Doug Bass' Garden Dice, as well as Alien Frontiers, Quarriors, Seasons and King of Tokyo. These are just a few examples.
We will have several on hand, brought by different members. If you have a game that fits the bill and would like to bring it, please do! Note that we won’t limit ourselves to only playing games related to the selected theme, but everyone is of course encouraged to join in the fun if possible. It’ll be a great way to try out new games!
Theme Thursdays will be held every other Thursday meetup, roughly once a month. Theme suggestions are welcome anytime, so please email yours and I’ll keep a running list. They might range from actual theme (Horror, Egyptian, Sci-Fi, History, Gangster) to a game mechanic (tile-laying, card-driven, worker placement, dice-rolling) to a designer (Reiner Knizia, Vlaada Chvatil, Martin Wallace). Based on the feedback received, group organziers will decide on a theme and update the meetup description.
