Tenzi is a simple game of rolling dice, where each player races to be the first to roll ten of a kind.

If that sounds a bit too simple, there are variations such as Stackzi (stack each die) Splitzi (roll 2x 5 of a kind) or Stealzi (steal dice from opponents)

First to complete their goal shouts out Tenzi

Sam Says...

In some skewed way, I kind of admire the fact Tenzi has managed to establish itself as a product when it’s more a pack of dice than a game. Rolling all the same number was a tired concept decades ago, but the packaging (a pack of dice) and one imagines careful placement by the tills of bookshops etc has somehow sustained it. As a game, the fun is in the race, and that kinda wears off quickly. And there are games out there that have the fun of the race that are to my mind a hundred times better than this – the co-operative high-pressure FUSE, the ghost-is-after-you Midnight Party, the try-to-play-silently Magic Maze, the stop-the-invasion Flipships. At the risk of sounding po-faced, I find it almost tragic that there are people who might be playing Tenzi instead, which is like a slightly bendy custard cream when there is a box of assorted biscuits elsewhere.

Take That

It depends which variation you play, but aside from Stealzi it's all pretty minimal.

Fidget Factor

None.

Brain Burn

None.

Again again

Do you love rolling dice? Do you love rolling dice over and over with no demand whatsoever on your brain? If so, you might like playing Tenzi. Once in a while.
