Dice Tower Review

Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

I put the review of the base game up on the GTG and Sentinel Tactics FB pages. Overall, a positive review!

GtG is making you work on the weekend....that doesn't seem right.

......

Since the other admins don't show up that much on the weekends, what can you tell us then delete before they see it?

Eh, I could have waited until tomorrow. But why not?

I enjoy that you think that I would tell you anything. Now I get the fun of being secretive.

When you say "you", do you mean me specifically, or the forum?

Interesting that in the base game review he says he'd have preferred minis to the tokens, and then in the expansion review he complains that the minis aren't easy to distinguish and that unless you're going to paint the tokens are better. Make up your mind Tom! ;)


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Actually, I completely agree  with that sentiment.

Minis are more fun than tokens, but the unpainted minis are problematic such that the (beautiful!) tokens are better, even though they're just tokens.

I had been starting to fear that my money spent on the painted tokens was a waste, but after playing with the painted minis at the tournament, I am _SO_ happy I could afford to purchase them.

The pre-painted mini quality is fantastic. It is very high on my list of purchases once they hit the online store
