I was walking around the ASTRA convention in Nashville, TN a few weeks ago when I came across the booth for Tenzi. I stopped and played with three other people and was impressed at how fun it is. I left with a review copy and so here we are now.
I have had the chance to play this game several times now with multiple people and each time I really have fun. You can play this game is so many different ways that it’s always fresh, fun and quick game that provides a good amount of laughs. You can all go for the same number say 5, and see who rolls all 5’s first. You can pick two, three or even 6 numbers and see who the first to roll all ten dice to get through each number first. You can stack a tower as you roll the numbers etc… There are a lot of different ways to play Tenzi which makes it fun and more fun than you would think. There is even a good amount of table talk about technique for rolling dice! My daughter who is 10 years old, loves this game and wants to play it all the time now.
There isn’t much to this game. 40 six sided die and a rules sheet so the components are not really an issue.
Based on the simplicity of this game I am going to rate it 6 out 10 stars but please don’t let that seem like it’s not a good game. It is a fun game that is just really simple. There is nothing deep about it as far as strategy goes but sometimes simple is best.
