Chaos and Dice

I have been designing a game for quite a while at the request of my son called "That'snot Pumpkin Soup" which is about goblins in a food production factory making concoctions for other monsters. It's not original but the boy was only 4 when he came up with the idea so give him a break.

I have made a game with the theme and he likes is (mainly cause it has poop in it) but its a bit of a grind to play at the moment. Last night I was working on it and thought "this is lacking some chaos". In my head I have the feeling I want players to have... They should be spinning plates and hoping that everything doesn't come crashing down. But at the moment I have a more euro feel turn this colour cube into that colour until you get points.

I want to inject Chaos, but just the right amount.. And the topic is born!

Our second topic somewhat spawns of the back of the first. I often here people saying they don't like dice cause they are too random. I feel that this is incorrect, but I'd like to hear your views about dice.

Making it easier to take part in!

I recommend using apps or websites to make the Twitter chat easier to follow. Here are a couple to try: or or Tweet Deck or Hootsuite to follow the hashtag chat. Of course you can just use twitter but sometimes the amount of #boardgamehour tweets can be challenging to keep up with.

Hope you can make it!
