DareBase is a 2-player strategy game based upon the schoolyard team-tag game of the same name. It stirs in some capture-the-flag elements and uses interesting dice rules that give players a glimpse at near future possibilities. Several different scenarios are available to mix up how you play.

Cerulean 1 A great use of dice as controlled randomness. Well-tuned balance of luck, theme, and strategy.

Keith 1 I do like the way this game is designed. Clever game mechanisms capture the feel of the game I enjoyed as a child. The second addition addresses most of the concerns I had in the first addition about defense being stronger than offense. I do miss the original interlinked die queue but most of the magic of the mechanism remains.
nycavri 1 Fun change of pace from the other SDG games. Strong theme, well executed.
papa_bear 1 Very fun. The random element is just enough to bring suspense and excitement. Not knowing the next die roll means that making a break for it past a stronger opposing piece is almost as exciting as doing it in real life and hoping to outrun the other kid...
