    I’ve only seen a couple of play throughs of this game (missed it sadly
    during the livestream… had to sleep sometime you know), never played it
    myself, but I think it seems a bit too simple for my taste and I think I
    would probably get bored with it quite quickly. Looking forward to next
    month though!

    I completely forgot that this was played on the live stream! Now that I do
    though, I remember it was a bit of a different experience, especially a
    viewing one, mostly due to all the things you guys brought up. I feel like
    I’ve seen enough playthoughs now (between you guys and TableTop) that I may
    just buy it.

    I saw you play on the livestream. I remember being a lot more confused then
    though. Not sure if that’s because I was tired or if it was because there
    were more of you.

    Recently I’ve been playing a game called Cosmic Wimpout that my dad gave me
    a couple years ago for Christmas. It’s really similar to Pass the Pigs in
    that it’s small (just a tube), and that the object is to roll for w/e
    agreed upon point goal, except with 5 dice with fun symbols on them (the
    three symbol is basically a triforce). It’s really quick to learn after
    getting around some of the quirky rules, and gets competitive really fast.

    Can’t wait for the next game of the month!

    Dice game for fame of the month?
    QUARRIORS!
    it’s essentially a deck building game… But with dice! Base set comes with
    130 dice in it, and the art is great

    I don’t think the games I played counted as dice games even though they
    involved dice… Does DnD count?

    You should get Power Up (the expansion you mentioned). It’s awesome cuz it
    makes each character unique instead of just being cosmetically different.

    BTW Cyber Bunny’s evolutions are generally energy-based. (There’s a card
    that lowers the energy cost for every card purchase, for example). The
    others all have some sort of theme, too. (Like Gigazaur has to do with
    manipulating the dice after they’ve been rolled)
