About this deal
Long Shot: The Dice Game takes 2009’s oft-overlooked gigi gamblefest Long Shot, and packs it into a small box. You can cross out the helmet which allows you to bet on this horse even when it has passed the ‘no bet’ line. If you bet too heavily on a leader, others will either hop on your coattails or run you into the dirt. Stepping through that turnstile is like entering another world, a Disneyland dedicated to debauchery.
People lose their minds when a horse that was in the back hits on 2 or 3 consecutive rolls of the dice. In this case you have 1 lap of a race track to determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place horse and make as much money as you can. If you’ve played Just One before, you already know just how satisfying it is to use those little eraser things on the end of the pens.Thankfully, Long Shot the Dice Game is edge of your seat fun without watching old people lose their life savings. Then check the horse card for that number (the game comes with a few sets of horse cards with different powers). This allows you to leave your bet till late, but will you be able to get enough on that horse before it finishes the race? It’s fairly easy to learn, fast to play, plays well from one to eight players, and has a satisfying mix of both strategy and randomness. After a game or two you’ll notice people saving these movement bonuses up until the end of the game, and it makes the last third of the game fantastic.
Plays really well at any player count as is simultaneous play, the betting is fun and the decisions are fun enough to keep everyone engaged. This creates a fascinating net of tensions where you’re forced to try and juggle the chances of a horse winning versus analysing who stands to benefit and by how much.
