This week on family game night we played a really fun new dice game from USAopoly called Rollers. It was a ton of fun. A game full of matching, rolling, and strategic fun. We also got to try out some yummy cornbread crisps from Farmer’s Pantry. They sent us three flavors that were all really tasty.
Rollers is a fun dice game. The basic goal of the game is to roll dice to collect matching sets of dice to fill up your game board. Along the way use a bit of strategy to collect chips from other players. It’s a great game for a small group of players 2-5. It’s simple enough that younger kids can play, ages 8 and up. I actually let my 7 year old play and she had not problems with it. It’s fun, involves strategy and a great new dice game for all to enjoy.
In the box you will receive:
- 5 game boards (each a different color)
- 5 sets of game board pieces (each a matching color of the boards)
- 50 purple chips
- 25 white chips
- 6 dice
Who Would Enjoy This:
The game is designed for groups of 2-5 players. Suitable for ages 8 and up. My 7 year old played it with no problems though. If you enjoy dice games then you will love this game. It’s not to difficult so a large variety of ages and enjoy it but it’s challenging enough with the earning chips portion of the game that it’s enjoyed by older kids and adults as well. We all had a lot of fun playing it from my youngest at 7 years old all the way up to me and my husband in our thirties. It’s really hard to find a game that is fun for all ages since we have younger and older kids but this one was really great for everybody.
Is It Fun:
Yes it is lots of fun. Fast paced enough that it keeps you on your toes. The strategy portion with the chips keeps it interesting and competitive. The play is easy enough that everyone can have a lot of fun with it and enjoy it.
To set up the game each player chooses a game board (each one is a different color) and a corresponding set of game board pieces to mark your progress. Each player also receive ten purple chips and five white chips. Decide who will be going first by rolling the dice. When it’s your turn you simply roll the dice. You get three turns and you can save dice during your three turns and roll the remaining dice. You are trying to roll sets of numbers. So to get your 1 section you need to roll 1-1, to get your 2 section you need to roll 2-2’s, 3-3’s, 4-4’s and 5-5’s. On the sets you have two steps, first you need to open that number by rolling enough of each number (previously described). Once you open a set you can then close it by rolling 1 additional die of that number. So to open and close the 1’s section you will need to roll two 1’s and so on. You can open and close a section in one roll or you can just open it and close it in a later turn. The second part to this game is the chip earning portion. Once you have opened and closed a section you use dice that you have rolled in that section to collect chips from other players who have not closed that section yet. So for example if I have a closed 3’s section and I roll 2 additional threes in a later round then I can ask the other players who have not closed their 3’s section to give me 6 chips. The chips did confuse us a little bit at the beginning (so in our video we did not have the chips down yet but we quickly figured it out once we started playing). So chips are based on the number so if you roll a 3 you get 3 chips, 4 then you get 4 chips, etc. So you will count up the number of chips you get from each player based on your roll. At first I thought it meant you get a chip (either color) but then we figured out that you use the 5 point and 1 point chips to give them the amount they rolled so if someone needs 8 chips then you could give them a 5 (purple chip) and 3 (white chips) worth 1 each. Once someone has completed their board, opened and closed all of their numbers then that round is over. The person who completed their board first gets 2 points and the person with the most chips gets 1 point, it can be the same person or two different people. Keep track of your points at the top of the board with your board colored markers. The person to get 5 points first wins.
No concerns for this one. It’s a fun and educational game for all ages.
