Dinosaur Island: Rawr ‘n Write is a roll-and-write version of the critically-acclaimed game Dinosaur Island.
Dinosaur Island: Rawr ‘n Write is a unique game in which players draft dice and then use those drafted dice as workers in a worker placement phase. Then, a fun polyomino puzzle ensues as you try and fit all your attractions and Dinosaurs into your park while buildings roads and routes to the exits for bonus points. At the end of the game, have more victory points than your opponents to win!
Excited for the solo challenges - but oh man! am I coming in with low scores! I look forward to seeing if I can improve at this game. Oddly, many of the dice worker placement spots do NOT matter which die is played at the location and I see that as a real lost opportunity. Takes what could have been a dynamic and meaty decision point - and makes it stale and flat.
Easy to play for newbies. Unfortunately, my kickstarter-version was faulty and the pandasaur support ignored all my messages so far, thus I won't buy there anymore.
Really good Roll and Write that gives tons of variety in the cards that come out each game! It seems that strategy is dictated by those card draws, which makes for a fun puzzle.
