Freshly brewed from Dice Hate Me Games comes VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game, a dice game about brewing coffee. The goal of the game is to brew up the best morning batch of coffee by rolling 5 custom dice with various coffee beans on them. The dice can be used to create a rainbow blend for one point with a chance for additional points on the next round, or they can be used to create the featured blend of the day. The featured blend scores one point the 1st time it is created but can be more valuable on the next few turns as long as it is really the best. Other things players can do with the various beans is to do research or to gain a flavor die for a better shot at the featured blend on the next turn. Research can gain a player additional abilities and can even yield points if you do it consistently. The first player to 21 points wins.

Grab a cup of coffee and a handful of dice to see who will be the barista of the day. The game includes 3 different research coasters plus an intern coaster to provide a good variety of game play. Only one coaster is used in each game. Also included is a solo variant where a player takes on one of 2 coffee conglomerates.

We have an open copy of VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game available in our Demo Games Library for you come in and try.
