Second featured game for Episode 22 of the podcast - Orongo designed in 2014 by Reiner Knizia. In Orongo, the players are racing to get their Moai on the game board first by way of close-fisted blind bidding. Each round, players will secretly take a number of shells (the currency) from behind their player screen and hold them in their fist. Once all players are ready, they reveal their bids. The player who bids the most takes three circular tokens for placement on the board and places their entire bid on the reef. The player who bid second most gets to place two tokens BUT they retain their entire bid/shells. All other bidders also keep their shells and place a single token. If a player bids no shells they take all of the shells that have accumulated on the reef. The players then take their tokens to claim different combinations of territories in an attempt to erect Moai. If a player’s network of tokens cover certain resource types AND also cover a palm space at the periphery of the island they erect a Moai. Generally speaking, I don’t enjoy the uncertainty and punishing nature of blind bidding games. However, this game absolutely nails the blind bidding mechanism. Winning a bid is great, but coming in second isn’t bad and is often desirable as you get to keep your bid and still get a decent benefit. This clever design choice reduces some of the unenjoyable sting of many blind bidding games. Also, the shell economy shrinks over the course of the game as shells are used to erect Moai creating some very difficult auctions and valuations. This game is fantastic! If you like auctions this is a must try! If you’ve been underwhelmed by blind bidding in the past this game might change your mind about the mechanism.

Master dice! For as long as I have been doing this, I've been hesitant about sanding masters. I just didn't trust myself and was afraid I was going to mess it up. To be fair, I did. My first set was messed up with rounded edges on the d20s. Since then, I've gotten a lot better about sanding. I've discarded zonas and adapted 1000-3000 grit sandpaper then dremel polish technique and it has been a game changer. While I have not been making dice due to resin issues at first and now weather issues, I have been accumulating a nice stock pile of masters. Majority of the masters you see here (sans the coloured ones and one 8 pc set of Form labs printed dice) are courtesy of @revelbrokerproductions and their amazing patreon. The community that they've built there is fantastic. The unique dice coming out of their creative minds are just wild. If you haven't signed up, I highly recommend it! These masters and master dice makers are top notch! Looking forward to molding all of these in the future and getting some unique dice made for trades and sales! Onward, to adventure! #enchantedgrovedice #handcrafteddice #handmadedice #dice #diceset #diceporn #diceaddict #dicemaniac #resinart #customdice #rpgdice #dnddice #dungeonsanddragons #dnd #dnd5e #pathfinder #ttrpg #tabletopgaming #tabletopgame #polyhedraldice #polyhedralset #dicegoblin #dicemaniacsclub #dicehoard #dicemaker #d20 #dicemakersofinstagram
