Dice King has been available in popular game stores, bookstores and supermarkets for 5 years. There has been one for two years now Board game based on the game principle based on Kniffel. Reason enough to devote ourselves to the game and take a closer look. You can find out who Dice King could be for in the following review.
Finally you are king. You look over your beautiful country - over the green meadows, the wide fields, the high mountains, the clear rivers, but something is missing... The population! So it's straight up, through the cities, mines, workshops, orc villages and enchanted forests to proclaim the virtues of your kingdom. But other kings also promote their kingdom. With skill and luck, you try to lure the best citizens into your kingdom. But beware of the villains and dragons, otherwise you will have to watch as someone else is crowned the greatest Dice King.
Dice King is a “tricky dice game” for 2 – 5 Dice Kings. The aim is to collect the citizens who will ultimately score the most victory points by skillfully rolling the dice. The course of the game is simple. There is a citizen per location who is currently visiting it. At the start of our turn we roll the dice up to three times. We try as far as possible to fulfill the conditions of an outgoing citizen so that he can join our kingdom. If we manage to fulfill the condition of a citizen who has the same color as the place where he is currently located, we will receive the top card of the place in addition to the citizen and thus additional victory points. At the end of the round, the citizens move on so that the now empty space is filled. A new card is drawn and placed first. However, if we fail to fulfill the condition of a citizen on display, we must draw a penalty card in the form of a villain. The citizen is then discarded at the last location and all other citizens move on one location. The game ends as soon as any stack (location, villain or citizen stack) is empty. Whoever has the most points wins the game!

Dice King is quick to learn and quick to play. A game lasted about 30 minutes. In itself there is no big difference to the classic Kniffel. Instead of fixed tasks, these vary round by round thanks to the rotating citizen cards and bring more variety to the games. In contrast to the classic, the crazy design appeals particularly well to children and is therefore a perfect game for families. The material is also very robust and should withstand a lot. But casual and frequent gamers will also have fun with Dice King, because Dice King is always good to have for quick rounds without thinking too much.
