Imperial Settlers Roll & Write
We all know that roll & write board games have gained popular momentum in the last year. With all that's going on with social distancing and working from home, roll & writes are easy to set-up, typically very easy to play and make for a great family game during these difficult times. Imperial Settlers, designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek, has been a wildly successful and popular franchise from Portal Games. It has spawned a new implementation (Empires of the North) that has been rated quite highly over at The Dice Tower along with a Roll & Write version. I was able to pick up a copy of the board game and it's been quite a hit within my family. As is the case with nearly all Portal Games productions, the artwork immediately draws you in. What sets Imperial (roll & write) apart from others, however, is the simplicity to learn along with the engine building. (For more details on the game you can visit Portal Games' web site here to not only learn about the various modes but also download the instructions.
Now, however, you can play the game on your favorite electronic device. It is now available in the IOS App Store here and on Android via the Android store here. For only $3.99 (USD) you get quite the value with this gem. It's current IOS rating is 4.8 (out of 5) .
