I confess I am a game collector, and thus have walls of shame – unplayed games, games still in shrink, games I have forgotten why I bought them in the first place. My shelfies are fantastic, but frankly, all those games take up space both in my house and in my brain. When will they get played? Is it worth learning them? Can I fit another game in my shrinking space?
When my friend, game designer David Sheppard (his game Spookre successfully funded on Kickstarter last fall) suggested we split the cost of a vendor table and sell some games at our local game convention this coming weekend, I jumped at the chance. I have no qualms about being an enabler for other people’s collecting addictions, none at all.

The first thing I love about this dice chucking filler game is the size: it’s in one of those tins that fit in the palm of your hand. Right now, I have my copy in my purse just in case there’s a sudden urge to throw some dice around in the quest for the crown. And I might just have the urge to pull it out and play, because it’s fun.
Dice of Crowns, published in 2016, might have flown under your radar but don’t pass this one up if you have a crowd that likes light dice push your luck games with some take that (actually, a lot of “stabby, stabby,” as we started saying as we played) with some strategy decisions.

There is no lack of social games in the marketplace lately. Especially secret identity party games. Designer Ta-Te Wu from Sunrise Tornado Game Studio is throwing his hat in the ring with their game coming up on Kickstarter January 3, Kung Pao Chicken. It’s a crowded space right now, with many excellent games. Is there room for one more?
