Product Description

Roasted worms are a bird's delight. On one hand this is due to the fact that worms are the favorite dish of all poultry. On the other hand, the preference for barbecue worms is nobody else's doing but of Johnny Rooster Roaster. His Uncle Sam, a native from Chickentown Kentucky, had the idea to open up a worm roasting house at each corner of town. Johnny didn't hesitate to make this idea a reality and since their first days as worm-barbecue masters their roasting joints have found no lack of eager and famished customers. And the customers keep coming. All over the place, chicken folk have started to gather worms and supply them to Johnny. Whether Curry Worm, Roast'n Worm or Frankfurter Worm: poultry of all sorts are standing in line to taste one of these specialties. For Johnny and his new found business the following stands: from worm hunter to millionaire!

Deep, Fun, and Fast; Makes Yahtzee Obsolete
November 28, 2005
Misleadingly compared with Yahtzee, this game is both deeper and more fun. Like Yahtzee, and many other dice scoring games, players seek to maximize their points through a series of rolls of a set of dice (8 in this game), but the similarity with Yahtzee pretty much ends there.

Pickomino adds player interaction through the option to steal points from opponents by trying to roll to take a scoring tile they have already collected, it also adds the usual clever Knizia game leveling end mechanics (though the effects of failed turns, which force players to replace a scoring tile and remove another tile from the game) that turn almost every game -- nor matter how far ahead one play gets early on -- into a close contest. The nice bits, in the form of attractively and whimsically illustrated scoring tiles, add to the fun. If you enjoy Yahtzee, you will probably find that Pickomino a step up (you may never play Yahtzee again); if you've never tried a dice game before, this is a great place to start.
