For me, Dicey Dungeons is one of the best, most polished games I have ever played. The pacing is spot-on as you take in the many many mechanics but it’s all drip-fed to where you always feel in the know, the gameplay is just so smooth and exciting. I put on the game for a quick run but soon it turns I to hours as I get caught up unlocking the many episodes and new cards. It’s just a perfect game in so many ways.
