Nations: The Dice Game is a dice building game for 1-4 players that takes 10-15 minutes per player and shares many concepts with the civilization-building game Nations while still offering its own challenges. The game is played over four ages (four rounds). During each round players roll their dice, then take turns assigning them until all everyone has passed. The available actions are:

-Buy a tile
-Build a wonder
-Reroll some or all your dice

Building and military tiles provide dice. Colonies and wonders provide resources and victory points. Advisors provide rerolls. New tiles provide benefits immediately, so you can roll new dice at once.

At the end of each round, the War and Famine card drawn at the start of the round is checked for each player, giving you victory points if you match or beat the values. Books are accumulated and scored. Player order is checked, with high military strength going first in the next round. At the end of the game, whoever has the most victory points wins.

Unrest, the first expansion for Nations: The Dice Game, includes eight new asymmetric nations. Four additional new concepts are included: Green dice - Unrest (which makes dice rolling a bit more challenging), Star rerolls (these respond to dice showing Unrest icons), Bonus tiles (something else to aim for each round), and Pass first tiles (get more benefits).
