A stand-alone sister game to his previous titles (Medici and Medici: The Card Game), the new dice game uses similar ideas, but is powered by dice-rolling mechanisms.

Fast to learn and simple to play, Medici: The Dice Game is a dice-selecting, roll-and-write game. Over the course of three rounds, 2-4 players will fill their ships with the goods presented at the wharf. On a turn, players will roll dice, to randomize which goods will be available and for what value. Then, players will select goods of different values to fill their shipby taking dice. They will earn money at the end of each round for having the most valued loads, as well as for collecting majorities of the different goods.
