Positives

  • Short, simple rules make Dice Miner easy to introduce to friends who prefer light social games

  • Multiple game modes – includes a solo game and rules are online for press your luck game using the tunnel dice, Liquid Courage (pdf)
  • Sharing a beer mechanism creates some fun and exciting interaction at the table

Negatives

  • Cardboard mountain needs to be partially disassembled to fit back in the box. This is a minor inconvenience and could led to wear over time
  • The dwarf miners theme is fitting, but thematic gamers will not find it strongly tied to gameplay
