Dice game

Hi

I was involved in making this little print-and-play dice game:
Dawn of Nations.

Check it out - it's good for 20 minutes of fun, (non-computer-based) dice rolling and arguing with your friends...

Looks like fun. Inspired by CheapAss games?

Reiner is awesome. I don't think there's a single game of his that I haven't enjoyed. I can't wait until my children are old enough for board games.

I've read the rules, but I can't seem to understand the Technology mechanic. How many dice can I record if I get multiple in the same turn? When and how many times can I use the boon stated on the list? Can I use them once, or every time that I want? Do I have to record the corresponding tech's die before?
Moreover, you speak of 7 goals, but I can only see 6 on the player sheet.

You can only gain one Technology per turn.

You can use the boon as many times as you want, but you can only use one technology per turn.

> Do I have to record the corresponding tech's die before?

Yes, when you record the technology's die, that enables you to use the technology from that point on.

> Moreover, you speak of 7 goals, but I can only see 6 on the player sheet

Technology, Divine Favor, War, Exploration, Trade, Flood, Wonder

Cheers
