DICE HOSPITAL: Patients are asked not to die in the corridors.

Weee wooo!
Staff Announcement: Incoming Patients With Bloaty Heads!


Quick, gather some specialists to check them out.
Does it remind you of anything?

But here, it's not about your average bull...frog.
It's a boardgame that won 2 of the 2019 UK Game Expo awards: Judges and People's Choice for Best Dice Game.

Dice Hospital is a worker placement game where players must treat as many patients as possible to appease the local authorities.

Players use their hospital staff to treat patients on their personal hospital player boards. Players draft specialist staff and new treatment rooms to improve their hospital and be able to treat and release patients and score points more efficiently! You use worker placement mechanisms for placing the staff on your individual player board containing treatment actions to treat your dice patients (where low pip values indicate low health).

Of course, the player with the highest reputation wins the game!

Curious about the game? You can play it now by clicking here:

We would like to thank the game designers Stan Kordonskiy and Mike Nudd, as well as their publisher Alley Cat Games for their kindness allowing BGA to host their game.
And guess what? We're even more thankful to the developer, alkinor, who achieved an amazing work by bringing the game to your favorite Online Board Game Platform. Wee-Woo-to-you!

So now is your time to write your own Michael Crichton-esque series with a roll of dice, or two...
And, obviously, we apologize for the amount of litter...

Enjoy your holidays, it's always sunny on Board Game Arena!

EAGLE!

Love the multiple references to Bullfrog / Theme Hospital (one of my fav PC games of all time) as well as Scrubs (just finished watching the entire TV series with my spouse a week ago). Looking forward to trying out this game. :D

I'd recommend Dice Theme Park too from ACG. There's more to it than Dice Hospital. I think the KS just finished though.

Alley Cat Games make some fantastic things, I've got Eternal Palace arriving in the next month or so too.

This is a game I own and have just recently discovered the hard modes. It completely changes your strategy and makes it really hard to get points. I love it. If you haven't played this game yet you should. This is game is very unique. I've never seen another game like it. Very glad that it is on here.

The title is a reference of Theme Hospital, a wacky but well-reviewed hospital theme retro game.

It's worth getting your game on here for the Flander's tie in!
