Includes the VivaJava Dice Game Game of the Year Expansion
As in VivaJava, VivaJava Dice has players making the crucial decision between blending beans and research, but with a quick, new twist. Players must now use the dice in their pool to blend a best-seller for quick points, then press their luck in subsequent rounds for bigger points but fewer dice as the blends degrade - or to research, which involves using beans to gain an ever-changing variety of dice-manipulating abilities, new ways to score, and paths that lead to aiding a competitor for a later payoff or hindering that competitor for immediate gratification. VivaJava Dice also offers a unique system of cooperative dice-rolling that can help you rise to the top, but at the price of someone else riding your coattails.
