Today most games are prettier than ever with components which make the game worth having in your collection. SUTAKKU is worth buying if you want some really cool looking dice and a dice bag, but play-wise, the game is not terribly challenging or, well … very much fun.
Game play is simple; each player per round (five rounds in a game) rolls dice in groups of three with the objective of stacking them on the nifty board as shown. To stack the dice, you MUST stack at least two of them. To stack them , the lowest die must have the lowest number in the stack. For example place the three on top of a two. You then either push your luck by rolling three more dice in the hopes that two of them are at least a three or higher. Once you are done rolling, take the top number on the stack, multiply it by the number of dice stacked for a total then the play passes around the table until everyone has rolled. Do this four more times, then add up your totals and high number wins. There are a couple of special rules if doubles or a triple are rolled, but there you have it in a nutshell.
As dice games go, SUTAKKU is not one of the best play-wise or most engaging, but the dice, if you’re into dice collecting makes the game worth buying (which is why I bought the game).
On a scale of one to five I will have to give it a two, but only because the components are well made.
