Sometimes the best games for people who aren’t familiar with more recent board games are those with dice. The luck of the dice can be a great equalizer for everyone involved. WizKids has announced a new game with a great price tag available today, Dice Stars.
WizKids is pleased to announce the release of an all-new dice-rolling game, Dice Stars, in North American retail stores. From the designers who brought you Mr. Jack, Dice Town, Cyclades and many others, Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc are mixing fun with strategy in this new dice game that will have you seeing stars.
Players will take turns drawing and rolling 1 to 3 dice and building a reserve. Use your roll to collect dice of the same color or value to strategically fill in your score sheet and win the most points. But watch out for stars: these faces can be powerful multipliers but they come with great risk… When you fill out the special line of stars, make sure you complete the line to get double points, because if you don’t, you’ll score zero!
If a player rolls the dice and it’s possible for them to fill out their sheet, they must do so. If there aren’t enough empty spaces left, the player must take a penalty! At the end of the game, players tally their final scores and the person with the highest total wins the game.
Pretty simple, right? See if you have what it takes to make the right choices and win Dice Stars!
