Featured Game Spotlight: GoodCritters

Posted on: February 13, 2019

It’s the most anticipated moment of any heist: time to split the loot! Of course, everybody trusts the boss to divide everything evenly, right? But maybe the boss will only pay off a few of these critters and keep the rest of it…


In GoodCritters, you are members of a truly wild gang that makes a business of stealing piles of loot. After each heist, everybody eagerly tries to get the biggest share possible by collaborating with, or confronting the Boss who distributes the loot (however they want) among the crew members. In this animal house, the crew has the final say, so through a vote, the boss (and distribution of loot) can change each round. In the end, the critter that collects the most valuable stash of loot wins!

GoodCritters, released this past November, has been stirring up a lot of ruckus the past few months. This newest edition to The Dice Tower Essentials line of games appeared for a time on BoardGameGeek.com’s THE HOTNESS list, and also made appearances on several Top 10 2018 lists:

Dan the Game Boy Geek lists GoodCritters as one of his Top 10 games of 2018. He says, “It’s a quick and easy game. It takes about 30 minutes to play. It’s probably one of my favorite, if not my favorite pure negotiation game I’ve played, ever.”
