Crystal Palace features dice as workers.  Players do not roll the dice.  Each player begins the game with 4 die.  At the start of each turn, players will simultaneously and secretly set each of their die to the number of pips they want.  Once everyone has revealed their dice, the dice have to be paid for.  Money is tight and the number of pips a player chooses to use determines how much money they will need to pay.  There are eight boards where the dice can be played in turn order.  Each of the boards yield a different thing: resource, money, a character, an invention, etc. that will be used to gain victory points.  On each of the eight boards, the player who places the highest number die will get to take the first action on that board. The game is played over 4 rounds and works well from 2 to 5 players.  It has many choices, such as which of the 10 different nations will be your home.  Each nation has a slightly different board and slightly different objectives to gain points.  There is plenty of replay value in this one. – – 2 to 5 players – – 90 to 150 minutes game play.
