Description Edit | History

Your mission, Martians, is to swoop down on the pathetic denizens of the primitive planet Earth and scoop up as many of the inhabitants as you can manage. We are interested in samples of the Chicken, Cow, and Human populations so that we can determine which of them is actually in charge. The Earthlings might manage to put up a feeble defense, but surely nothing that a small taste of your Death Rays can't handle. Make Mars proud – be the first Martian to fill your abduction quota!

In Martian Dice you will roll 13 custom dice in an effort to set aside ("abduct") Humans, Chickens, and Cows. With each roll you must first set aside any Tanks, representing the human military coming to fend off your alien invasion. Then you may choose one type of die to set aside as well - one of the earthlings to abduct, or Death Rays to combat the military. At the end of your turn, if you have at least as many Death Rays as Tanks, then you may abduct the earthlings you've been setting aside. You can't pick any type of Earthling twice in one turn, but if you manage to abduct at least one of each you'll score a bonus!

With each roll you will ask yourself, do you feel lucky?

31 Custom Martian Dice Scoring Track
I don't like games that requires pen and paper. So I made this scoring tack for 9 players (9 colors) to keep track the scores. Enjoy...

10 Simple Martian Dice score sheet
This is a simple Martian Dice score sheet (not as cool as Topher Pierce's very clever player aid!). Each line has 25 dots you ink in for each score. The first line is for the player's initials; the last line is for the final score (because score can go higher than 25). Print double-sided and cut out the sheets. They'll fit in the tube. Each cut-out let's you track 8 scores on each side.

32 Player Aid/Scoring Track v1 for Martian Dice
UPDATED version 2.1: Fixed typo. User-created Player Aid/Scoring Track for Martian Dice, Version 2.0. Very basic turn summary, and an individual scoring track that uses a standard d6. These can be sleeved, but were designed and sized to be laminated. Laminated and trimmed, they should easily fit into the tube without bending.
