Thrift Treasure: Sequence Dice
In the past few weeks you’ve seen a number of great game finds we’ve made that only cost us $1.38 each. For this week’s submission we had to splurge a little bit. But this game box came with not one, but three games! How much extra did we have to pay for the combination of Sequence Dice, Kings in the Corner and Chips? A whole dollar!
We are no strangers to the Sequence line of games from Jax Ltd. Sequence was a regular table game we played with some close friends over a couple (few) glasses of ChocoVine. About once a month we’d get together for a half-dozen or so rounds (of the game, not the drinks) and things would get a little silly. Sadly we haven’t done it in a while…our schedules just haven’t meshed lately.
So when we discovered this variation it brought back all of those fond memories and we were hoping this version would be as fun for the family to play. Our luck was with us again as all of the pieces were here!
If you’ve never played Sequence, it is basically a big game of tic-tac-toe played in teams. The object is to get five in a row by drawing cards and placing them on their corresponding spot on the game board. This dice version is much of the same; five in a row is needed. But instead of drawing cards you roll a die and place your colored chip on the correct number.
Play continues in order until you are able to make 5 in a straight line. There are some twists, such as rolling an 11 lets you play anywhere. Roll a number that is already all filled up allows you to remove someone else’s and put your own in its spot. This is where the strategy comes into play as you will need to plan a couple moves ahead in order to get your chips in a row. Playing with more than 2 people really throws a wrench into all those plans as you are now fighting against multiple people who have their own strategies (and grudges).
In our case the person who appeared farthest behind ended up winning with a couple lucky rolls of the die.
A good follow-up to the popular Sequence line and different enough to warrant your own copy even if you already have the original. Pick up a copy of this highly-rated game on Amazon for well under $20. You can also learn more about the other Sequence offerings on the Jax Ltd. website. Jumbo Sequence looks amazing!

That looks like such a fun game. I know my son would love coins – he obsessed with coins!
I love buying games at our local thrift store. It is one of the must places I visit in the store before I leave. They are always such a great price compared to in-store prices! Our thrift store goes through them to make sure all pieces are there and then tapes them up. You really got a great score!
I love to find treasures while thifting and board games are among my top faves! Yay for family game time!
What a cool idea! I need more games in my life! 🙂
We love playing games as a family. We’ll have to check this one out.
What a great idea to look for games a Thrift shop. I have never heard of this game, but I love trying new games. Honestly, we have tons of games that we play 2-3 times then we are done. Picking up cheap ones at the thrift shop is a great idea. I guess you just have to be careful to check for all of the pieces 🙂
I actually remember playing both of these games! Woohoo! I know one finally!

Oh wow, this looks like fun. We have never tried this board game before but we do have different board games at home. I love your girls satisfied faces!
It is a great find and man, you can’t beat that. It reminds me of the game that I found at the Rummage sale and paid the same amount. It was in a big square tin box like this one and it has three games in it too. My boy was only interested in playing the Chess.
We haven’t played a board game in ages. This is a great find for that price.
