In this game, players are drafting various colors of dice in order to use them as stats in creating the "ideal" role-playing game character. Each character has a set of stat goals to meet for points, as well as special abilities and bonuses for certain colors of dice, and players can purchase skills and equipment that help manipulate the dice. I have to say that this one is extremely tempting.
Nina and Pinta (Yes, it is actually "Nina" and not "Niña" even on the BGG page.)

In this game, players are reenacting Columbus' voyage to the New World, with a twist: the ships travel to alternate universes. The game designers have a good track record, and as a bonus, this game includes rules for solo play. I'm leaning toward backing, but I want to see either the full rules or a gameplay video first.
