Description Edit | History

Survive the Players, Survive the Island, Survive the DICE.

Playtime - 30 minutes plus. Players can set a time limit or set the playing area for shorter or longer games.

Game Play:

Choice, Strategy, and Chance will be used each turn in the attempt to unite the island or eliminate your opponents. More strategy than chance.

Each turn you will roll SIX dice simultaneously.

Three dice will determine your movement, your income, and your chance at more population.

Three more dice will be chosen from the eleven additional option dice. They include native movement dice, the Protection Die, the Restriction Die, the Kill Die, and the dreaded Cataclysm Die.

With all these results, choose how and when to resolve each die to further yourself and your own survival. Will you choose to attack, run, fortify, or do you have something else in mind?

In Island Dice, players carefully select combinations from a variety of custom dice to implement strategies in order to bring peace to the island. This can be achieved in one of two ways: First you can protect all 4 of the native bases simultaneously, bringing peace to the island OR you can wipe out all of your opponents and when there’s no one else left to fight, you have brought peace to the island, and you win.
