|"Great Heartland Dice Game" with Tiffany Bahnsen|
and Adam O'Brien (r.)
I was tremendously pleased to get to meet Jason Kotarski (Great Heartland Hauling Company) in person. I got to playtest his dice-game spin-off, "Great Heartland Dice Game," with Shawn Purtell, Adam O'Brien, and Tiffany "Socially Inept Gamer" Bahnsen. This was a fun variation on GHHC, kind of Yahtzee with cows. Actually, there is an element of resource management, since having a gas reserve makes it possible to re-roll dice and score more effectively. It's also possible to sell of extra dice to other players for gas. The result is a clever little filler game that deserves a publisher's attention.
