  1. Two other games I'd add are Sagrada and Lords of Vegas. In Sagrada you draft dice and have to make a vitreaux but you can't have two adjacent dice of the same number or the same color, and your personal board also has some restrictions. In Lords of Vegas any casino tile of the same color as an adjacent tile forms a bigger casino but each tile has a die showing its owner, the person with the highest die is the boss of the casino, and you can pay to reorganize, you reroll all the dice in a casino trying to become the boss

  2. Castles of burgundy and grand austria hotel are 2 of our favorites!

  3. Euro Dice should this be called. It was nice, but I expected something… different.

  4. Would recommend: Pulsar 2849, Tiny Epic Galaxies and Tiny Epic Quest. a lot of re-playability 😉 Dice Throne looks amazing, added to list 🙂

  5. Great video as always, Shaggy. Totally agree about GAH, brilliant game! My favourites that you haven’t put on your list are Nemo’s War 2nd Ed, closely followed by Pandemic The Cure.

  6. Great picks! Troyes would be my first pick too. Magnificent would also be on my list somewhere, I love the colored dice building off each other but at a potentially higher cost, and boosting with gems feels good to be able to do more.

  7. Great idea for a list! Surprised to not see Woodcraft; was it disqualified due to not being a “traditional” use of dice, or too new, need to judge staying power, or just didn’t make the cut?

    Similar question for Wayfarers of the South Tigris—too new, disqualified due to lots of cards and worker placement, or just didn’t make the cut?

  8. You did not disappoint with number 1! Great video.

  9. such a good list , u gathered almost all of my favorite games , Lorenzo is also a gem!
    u earned my sub! good job!

  10. If you love dice drafting, have you tried Pulsar 2849. My family love it more than castles of burgundy. 😯 I know right?
    but the top for me would be Voyages of Marco Polo. I still love this game. Both are good but the tightness of the original is my preferred due to the tension it can create. teotihuacan, would round out my top three. But after watching your video, I really wan to try Macao/Amsterdam. That looks really interesting.

  11. My favorite board game channel. Shaggy, thank you for your videos.

  12. Good work as usual Mr Shaggs. All dice should be the same size as the ones from Twilight Inscription…

  13. Have you tried Dice Throne Adventures? add to cart.

  14. roll player with monster & minions expansion its a good game with dice too

  15. Totally agree with Troyes. So good and so fun.
    Also space base is awesome.

  16. I backed the upcoming deluxe version of Castles of Burgundy. Based on its reputation and how gorgeous it looks. I’ve never even played it! Did you back the deluxe?

  17. Try tekhenu 😊. Really tight and cool game!

  18. I've always liked games that use dice in interesting ways, so this was the perfect video for me.

  19. Great list. I would agree with you about Troyes. I feel it doesn't get talked about much. It's one of my favorite games! The Ladies of Troyes expansion also adds a lot of modules as well. Incredible game. Grand Austria Hotel is fantastic as well. Other games not mentioned that I love are La Granja, Lorenzo il Magnifico, Tiletum, and The Red Cathedral. Great channel and thanks for the content!

  20. Pandemic, The Cure. Savage dice rolls. Can be wiped easily. Teotihuacan: City of Gods, awesome worker dice placement game.

  21. Great list! Woodcraft is one that pops up in my mind too. Really cool dice manipulation. Teotihuacan is a great one too. And an upcoming game that from what's I've seen is also pretty interesting with dice is Scholars of the South Tigris.

  22. Really love the list! I think I share many of these. Troyes didn't hit with me (only solo) but the others you mentioned I liked. I also enjoy playing The Artemis Project – which is a dice game. It's not heavy but I tend to play a bunch back and solo mostly. I also love Creature Comforts for the same reason and the plus is my daughter loves it too! Thanks for the great quality content!!

  23. I love Troyes. Great to see it on this list. Black Angel is another one to keep a lookout for.

  24. Dice Miner is a great filler game with lots of set collection, open drafting, and mitigation die. Each character has their own ability to add to set collections. Also a great after work day game.

  25. Another great video, thank you! Any chance you have and want to play Hegemony: Lead your class to victory? 😊

  26. Great List! Castles of Burgundy and Teotihuacan are probably my two favorite dice management games. I have not played Troyes, but I do want to try it. I also want to try out Black Angel at some point to compare it.

  27. Great video as usual. I've been binging Marco Polo on BGA and I'm interested in the sequel bc it's more of the same, but a little looser. What's the game in the intro B-roll?

  28. Love the video. Great quality as always. Definitely one of my favorite board game channels. Also, at the end, you named exactly the two games I wanted to mention so I guess you know your audience, hahahaha

  29. Great list, Kingsburg is an oldie and one of my favorites

  30. Cool list! Madeira is such a forgotten gem, love it! Gotta try some of these I haven't yet.

    For heavy juicy dice drafting definitely look into Tekhenu and Trismegistus.

    Circadians: First Light is the only Garphil I like. Simple medium-weight sci-fi worker placement.

    Rollway Station for totally under the radar roll-n-write mixed with 18xx feel.

  31. Some of my favorites
    Castles of Burgundy
    Roll for the Galaxy
    Alien Frontiers
    Roll Player
    Fantastic Factories
    Steampunk Rally (Fusion)
    Wayfarers of the South Tigris
    Dice Forge
    Istanbul the Dice Game
    Railroad Ink

  32. First video for me. Excellent content. If you haven't tried it, I would suggest Origins: First Builders as an interesting use of dice.
