I didn't say I didn't like the game with dice. It is good too (and better than some of the similar games). However, I find that if there is some form of hidden information which is partially decided at random, that makes it more interesting too (although Game Courier and Zillions do not support this).

George Duke: You say I have "over half a dozen of the fifty", but I don't know if you want to count 123456 Chess because although it uses dice, it doesn't use randomness (Chaotic Chess is the other game with this property) (maybe randomness should be another category).
