  1. No Escape The Curse of the Temple? That’s a cooperative roll and write! It should definitely be included

  2. Excellent list! Also, besides Fleet and 3 Sisters, there is now Motor City, and French Quarter in the series.

  3. Troyes Dice, Silver and Gold are two other easy to play and fun ones.

  4. Someone has made an expansion and campaign for Twilight Inscription for more full table interaction and replayability. You can find it in the variant section of bgg.

  5. I love Welcome to Dino World, because you have to make a Jurassic Park essentially and draw cute stick dinosaurs. But so far, Welcome to the Moon, Cartographer, Flett and Penny Papers (my honorable Mention) are all in our household and they come to the table pretty often. Either for game knight with my brothers family, or Solo, when I want to have some fun drawing stuff. Great list. I will check out Twilight Inscription. Looks massive and for a Roll and Write that is impressive. Can't believe I missed that somehow.

  6. Clever is really good, the whole reason im looking for more roll and writes!

  7. What did Janis G. wife say to him? (WRONG ANSWERS ONLY)

  8. Happy to see Railroad Ink on the list even if it's at the bottom of the top 10. I think it might be my favorite of the genre.

  9. Regarding Hadrians Wall:
    I did enjoy my first 15 Games of it, but then all the games felt kinda redundant… any advice?

  10. Tank you guys! Another great video!

    I think Welcome to… could be replaced in the future with Welcome to the Moon – really amazing game which contains a lot of different adventures, campain mode, legacy mechanic, cooperations and a bit confrontations

  11. This is a great list, I've never played a roll and write but I will definitely use this list as reference for when I do 👌

  12. Have you guys tried Merchants of Magick? Great roll and write

  13. What about rolling realms or merchants of magick?

  14. Have you tried "Silver&Gold"? Quite simple, but with lot of interaction and replayability – a flip&write. My wife’s favourite for a while, very accessible for newcomers, but I find it rewarding for gamers as well, because there is nice balance between strategy and luck. + thin box.

  15. I just started solo gaming this year and bought Hadrian's Wall. It is awesome! Great video guys! Can't wait to watch your other ones. Thank you!

  16. Joan of Arc Orleans Draw & Write – awkward name but fun to play

  17. Been waiting for this video! 🤘🏼
    I agree with Hadrian’s Wall.

    Three Sisters, Fleet, Cartographers and Joan of Ark Orlean are currently my top as a solo player.

    Now, did you make this list from a multiplayer view or lower count? I definitely would love to see a list for solo gaming as well.

  18. The only one that challenges Hadrian's Wall for my top spot is Welcome to the Moon. Original Welcome to is a classic that we love in our house, and my wife refused to mess with it. So I play Welcome to the Moon solo, and it's outstanding! Has some rules overhead every time you try a different board, as there are 8 of them, but well worth the time investment!
    Glad to see you enjoyed Fleet and Three Sisters!

  19. I played of the games in the list, but I'm very surprised it's missing one of the best roll & write -> Rajas of the Ganges: The Dice Charmers

  20. Great list! Only additions I would have would be are Rolling Realms (just so many options and variability for set-up), Super-Skill Pinball (super unique theme), Vengeance Roll and Fight (real time dice placement combat game)!

  21. Worthington make a line of roll and write wargames. And these are often quicker and simpler than games such as Twilight Inscription and Hadrian's Wall. If you want a different type of roll and write check them out.

  22. I can see Trails of Tucana taking also some space in your top 10 (missing from the video and didn't find any mention in the comments) – simple rules, but with clever decision making: going for fast points to get them several times or take the price earlier than others (as in Welcome To…) And trying to connect everything, but not having several key connections 🙂

  23. Awesome list! HW is our family fave too. We've been enjoying some Dino Island lately too.

  24. No Joan of Arc:Orléans r&w on the list!

  25. it was nice to know that you are from Latvia! Hi from Ukraine! you have a great channel!

  26. My top 5:
    1. Welcome to the Moon
    2. Trek 12 Amazonia
    3. Cartographers
    4. Long Shot the Dice Game
    5. Troyes Dice

  27. I keep seeing Hadrian’s Wall and gotta check it out someday… I think my pickup from this video is Long Shot though. Cool that it’s a semi-party game

  28. Another great series of roll-n-writes: Voyages and Aquamarine. From the same designer, print-n-play so very reasonable. Voyages even has a campaign for it’s five boards, and Aquamarine has four boards as well. Tons of content for just a few bucks. Plus the same designers have a new one coming out on KS this month

    Another gem: Fliptown. Not sure if it’s available retail just yet, but the PnP version is. Deck of cards and two sheets is all that’s needed. Excellent Western/cowboy theme and gameplay, plus a 12-chapter campaign if you want added goals

  29. Explorers is a good one. Bonuses are also distributed based on who gets treasure First in each grid

  30. Been really enjoying Wok & Roll plus the Korean expansion recently. Bit of a yatze element to it, and the box itself is the wok that you roll in! Has more strategy than it appears to at first (I've still not managed to reach the highest score tier from the manual)

  31. My top 9:
    Welcome to the moon
    Guild of merchant explorers (this IS a flip and write, i dont care what anyone says)
    Twilight inscription
    Metro x
    Rolling realms
    Railroad ink
    Cartographers (heroes)
    Long shot
    Wecome to…

  32. isn't it the global consensus that welcome to the Moon is all around better than welcome to? I mean I have not play either but that's what I keep on hearing from different YouTubers

  33. Is long shot ok for just 2 players?
    Have you tried dungeons dice and danger?
    Thanks! Have a great day!

  34. Dinosaur Island: Rawr & Write is my favourite of the genre because it has lots of interesting decisions, beautiful components, doesn't take forever, and has a great solo mode.

  35. Great top and great video as always!! I miss Dinosaur island Rawr and Write!!!

  36. I like the postmark games, especially Waypoints

  37. you should try dino island rawr and write and also love lost cites roll and write

  38. Castles of Burgundy Dice is quick, fun and plays a lot like the “real” version

  39. Great video!! I agree with your list.
    Maybe I would add Rajas of the Ganges the dice charmers, welcome to the moon. And the lighter silver & gold, super mega lucky box.
    I’m also waiting for Dinosaur island rawr & write that I’ve ordered, I hope I’ll like it too.
