    I like the concept. It reminds me of Ra, where you bid with numbered tokens (each player has 3) after each other and the winning bid-token is replaced by the one in the center of the board. So you might actually improve your bidding power if you manage to win a bid AND exchange your bid-token with a higher value one.

    It’s very engaging and I guess that’s what I’m missing a little bit here: if some cards are just very good then what’s the strategic choice I’m making? I will always just use my highest die, and so will my opponent. If I win: yay, and if I lose, I get 2 good dice, so the high-stakes bids are actually the least interesting and come down to chance.
