I wonder if any board game manufacturer ever though of what this game does actually. It really seems like it's based on snakes'n'ladders or ludo, but instead of a fixed die with the numbers 1-6 you get to choose between different dice each time, where numbers can be repeated. So the probability of the number you're getting is not 1/6 like a classic die. So, depending where you want to end up you can choose a die that has better probability for the number you want. You can also pay coins (if you have collected enough) to get a supposedly better die depending on your situation. All are great ideas to spice the old formula up!
