    3/5

    Roll Player est une expérience aussi intéressante que sa fin est décevante.
    En effet un thème du jeu de rôle très fort mis en avant pour la création d'une fiche de personnage qui se conclue sur une fin de jeu avec scoring et rangement dans la boîte, ça me laisse un goût d'inachevé.
    Cependant la mécanique de gestion des dés est très bonne, permissive et occupe suffisament pour catégoriser Roll Player de "bon casse-tête solo". Par contre l'absence d'interaction entre joueurs et le phénomène d'Analysis Paralysis me pousse à le déconseiller fortement en multijoueurs.

    Il semble que l'extension monsters & minions à paraître en fin d'année chez Intrafin Games lui apportera le renouveau et la profondeur qui lui manque, aussi Wait & see !

    3/5

    Roll player est un jeu qui s'adresse, dans un premier temps, aux nostalgiques du jeu de rôle car il a pour thème la création d'un personnage (habiletés, alignement, classe...). Mais ne vous y trompez pas. Si comme moi vous n'avez jamais joué aux jeux de rôles, vous pouvez totalement trouver votre bonheur avec ce jeu.

    Tout d'abord, le matériel est de très bonne qualité. Les illustrations sont magnifiques ce qui participe grandement à l'immersion du jeu. Roll player est un jeu de placement et de manipulation de dés. Le hasard rentre donc en ligne de compte. Mais vous avez tellement de possibilité pour modifier les résultats, que cela soit avec les cartes du marché ou avec vos habiletés, que vous arriverez facilement à le contrôler. Et si vous êtes vraiment poissard, il y a même des cartes qui vous permettront de scorer quand même.

    En solo, Roll player est un jeu à scoring. Vous devrez avoir le maximum de points possible pour vous comparer à une charte présente dans les règles. PNJ ou grand aventurier ? Cependant même sans joueur virtuel, le jeu est très agréable à jouer et on prends plaisir à maximiser son score. 

    Le point négatif : Mais qu'est ce que l'on fait avec son personnage une fois créé ? Et bien rien du tout. Et c'est là qu'apparaît le petit bémol du jeu. Il nous reste comme un sentiment de tout ça pour ça. Mais fort heureusement, le designer ne s'est pas arrêté là et propose une extension où vous pourrez vous battre contre des minions et un monstre final avec votre personnage fraîchement créé. Mais ceci est une autre histoire. Je vous retrouve sur la fiche jeu dédiée : Roll Player - Monsters and Minions

This game rocks ...i have played this several times in a row with my wife and we both really enjoyed this excellent game. I was a RPGer but my wife was not ...so I was immediately attracted to this title but a little worried my wife would not enjoy it. There was no need to worry... This game has a surprising depth which is not immediately obvious from reading the quite lite rules. The components are awesome...thick boards with slots to place your dice, and a huge bag of large heavy dice (73) ...card stock is very good although i would suggest sleeving the individual initiative cards as they are used the most other cards are chosen and left next to your board. It has been one of 2016 highlights and it will take a very long time to become bored with this game ...I would rate his 11/10 ...

    Very good and amusing puzzly game which, for my tastes, needs some tweaking in the initial setup in order to prevent some very nasty unbalances between players...

    Wow ...of all my Essen 16 games ...this game has seen the most table time. Simple rules, with an excellent theme plus great quality componets makes for a very successful formulae. I am an retired RPGer so the theme appealed to me instantly, however my wife is not but this did not stop her enjoying this marvellous game equally as much as me ...Infact I have so far been unable to win against her playing this game...highly recommended game which plays quite quickly, has plenty of replay value and great decsion choices ...
