Card drafting games are games in which players pick cards from a limited subset, such as a common pool, to gain some advantage (immediate or longterm) or to assemble hands of cards that are used to meet objectives within the game.
Dice rolling in a game can be used for many things, randomness being the most obvious. Dice can also be used as counters. The dice themselves can be unique and different sizes, shapes and colors to represent different things.
Typical Eklund... more simulation than game, but I absolutely love the theme and, once you get over the learning curve, the game is simple to play/teach. Dice play a (possibly overwhelmingly) large part in success or failure in the game, but still worth a play.
It's good, not great. Quite heavy to learn for such a small box. Only played two players and would say you kind of have to be a nerd to play this one. Thankfully I am, cause this would probably pretty boring otherwise. Some okay strategy here and some luck.
Like most Phil Eklund games, the rulebook is dense and it can be challenging to really wrap your head around the flow of the game, but once you do it's very enjoyable. You don't HAVE TO learn anything, but that's still part of the fun for me.
