I have a bunch of unfinished prototypes sitting around that might become BrainGoodGames, so I thought I'd post about em so that I have a reference for them and so you can let me know what you think!

This is Dice Port which is a dice game that involves building up an island of buildings that you activate with dice. You build up the island by buying new tiles with dice from the shop on the right and also activate previously placed buildings with dice. There are enemy ships that you can attack for the pip value on a die, and some islands where you can "ship" goods of the indicated type (duplicates, all less than 4, etc)...

I'm considering retheming the whole thing in the Solar Settlers aesthetic/universe as "Roller Settlers" (not joking).

Here's a GIF! I'll post about more of these over the next few days.

You roll the dice at the start of every turn. And then at some point you decide that you've done enough playing dice for this "hand" and click end turn.

Then you get all the dice on the board back, roll em, and start over!

I hadn't heard about these 'dice resource' board games until recently but I actually really really like the idea!
When I saw this on Twitter a while back I thought it was about building your ship on the ocean, I way prefer that it's building an island! I love that!

You are truly the most positive snake! I'm definitely playing with your "hiding" when too many enemies appear idea. Super thematic way to thing about dice in hand vs on the board. Love it.
