Enter the Inaugural Tomato Growing Competition and flex your horticultural muscles in the art of growing the red fruit. Your goal is to seed, grow and harvest the most valuable tomatoes. All sorts of chaos is happening in the garden so slipping your opponents the less attractive tomato dice or any rotten pieces will most likely go unnoticed... Or will it?
Diced Tomatoes is a light-hearted dice rolling and pattern building game for 2 to 4 players. Deceptively simple game with light strategy and "take that" elements.
Try to outdice, outsmart and outscore your opponents!
Please NOTE that some of the components (especially the player mat) shown in the reviews are home-prototype quality. The production copies will definitely be high quality.
Board, Deck & Dice:
"It's a very simple game but along with the simple mechanics come some interesting decisions which I don't often see in more complex games ... It's a really tight package. Yes, it's a light game, a filler game but it's one of the most fun filler games I've played for a while..."
"Diced Tomatoes is a super fun strategy game where you roll the dice and try and build vines faster than your opponent to harvest the highest scoring tomatoes before your partner does! This game requires you to screw over your opponent more times than one which leads to a really fun game day!"
Dad's Gaming Addiction:
"Diced Tomatoes is charming and full of theme. Choosing red and black dice to convey the tomatoes was a good move and I liked the idea of tomato tokens and the vines that result from them. Dice games tend to be fairly luck based but I am glad to see that players have a few options available to them when rolling poorly. For example, they can add low valued dice to their opponent’s tomato tokens so that they score less"
A Pawn's Perspective:
"It's light but it's got some really good choices here and it's just really entertaining especially with the family. It's fun to take places with you ... it takes 2 minutes to learn ... I highly recommend at least checking it out. I was a little dubious when I first got it in and read the rules but it turned out to be quite a fun, light game with some interesting choices"
"I think the game is actually really fun! It does a great job creating a big difference in a dice gaming category ... The depth is pretty interesting. There is a lot of room for influencing the game and getting an edge..."
Dice and Dragons:
"I do enjoy this game. It is a fun dice chucking game and I definitely can see getting it out to the table when we have family over or while we're waiting for people to show up. It is similar to Yahtzee but with more depth and strategy."

Your goal in “Diced Tomatoes” is to score most points. To do that players must seed and grow their tomato vines until the vine is completed. Seeding the tomato vine happens when the first die is placed on the tomato token. That die becomes the score the owner of the vine will receive once the vine is completed. Growing the vine is a process of adding additional dice to the seed die either in straight sequence or as a set of the same number matching the seed. Dice can be added to either side of the tomato seed die. The vine is competed when the fourth die is added to it. When there are four dice in a vine, the tomato is diced and it scores the value listed on the seed die (the die situated on the token itself).
There are Rotten (black dice) in the game that cannot be placed onto a tomato token but can be placed on a vine. These dice count as negative points at the end of the game.
Completing (placing the 4th die) other player's tomato tokens earns gratitude points. Those points can be traded in to change a die roll or to clear an undesirable tomato vine.
Game ends when a sixth tomato of any player is diced OR when a player starts a turn without any dice to roll.
After the game ends players add up the dice values from their player mat and subtract 1 point for any rotten die in their possession.
The player with the highest score is the winner.
