Sushizock im Gockelwok at Populuxe Brewing

Sean and I have¬†played Sushizock im Gockelwok on our own a few times, and I’ve also played in a larger group. Since we hadn’t played it in a long time, we took it along on a recent trip to Populuxe Brewing. Sushizock was one of the games I wanted to reevaluate to consider whether it’s really worth having around.

When I first heard about Martian Dice, I felt like I needed to get a copy, because Zombie Dice has been a hit with pretty much everyone I know. Martian Dice has some similarities, especially in appearance, but it’s a very different game with its own pros and cons.
