There was also some confusion regarding how the Bid and Bet interact. The conclusion was that if there is a winner bidder, the Bets for that number are void. When the bets do go through, the payout is only one per token per die. So if there are three people on the number 5 Bet, for example, and two 5s are rolled, the first two players get a coin, but the third does not.
The "buy" mechanic has also been rethought. Rather than a progressively increasing scale for Dice and End Game, the game will have spots for players to increase or decrease the number. For example, the number of dice starts at six. One player could pay for +2, but another person might put on -3, so the net result would be five dice.
Overall, the game was about what I expected. There is some strategy and gamesmanship with the placement of tokens, but in the end a lot of it is pure luck. The rolling of a big handful of dice is exciting though, and I think that makes it fun.
