In game creation settings it is also possible to select additional timer of 0 or 120 seconds.

Customer Reviews


Never encountered any bugs and the game can be run at a very fast pace (if you're impatient like me.)

AI is also excellent. Unlike many other games I've tried, the higher difficulty does not mean the dice are just better roles for the AI.
