TWICE AS CLEVER OVERVIEW
Doppelt so clever follows the model of 2018’s Ganz schön clever. Each turn the active player rolls six dice, chooses one of them to mark off a space on their scoring grid, places any dice with lower numbers on the side, then re-rolls any remaining dice. The white die is a joker and can be used as any one of the other five colors. After the active player chooses at most three dice, then the other players choose one of the set-aside dice for use on their scoring sheet.
Doppelt so clever has five new dice-marking challenges and a new action beyond the re-roll and “use one more die” actions of the earlier game.

TWICE AS CLEVER REVIEW
6.8 out of 10
Twice As Clever is a very satisfying follow-up to its predecessor, That’s pretty Clever, and feels like its own brand new stand-alone game. The base mechanic of the game shows incredible ingenuity and is worth your attention, if only once. In a category that is blowing up and can sometimes feel dull, Twice as Clever is a fun, smart and interactive roll-n-write game that should stand up to the test of time.
TWICE AS CLEVER HOW TO PLAY
In the game, you have a score sheet with five distinct scoring areas that work in different ways. One is a grid where completing specific sets of numbers give bonuses, one scores the difference between two numbers, one has to go in numerical order, etc. It feels like a traditional rolling game that quickly makes you do a double-take and say to yourself, wow that was clever.
