Encore - Roll & Write Dice Game
The ingenious dice game!
Score bonus points by being the first to check off all boxes in a column, and all boxes of the same colour. Will you score big?
What’s in the box?
- 3 number dice
- 3 colour dice
- Six pens
How to play:
On your turn, roll all six dice. Choose one colour dice, and one number dice, which you place in front of you and mark off the relevant box on your player sheet.
Any other player may now choose any combination (one colour die and one number die) from the remaining four dice and mark their own sheet.
The ‘?’ number and the ‘X’ colour dice are jokers. If a player chooses the ‘X’ they can choose a colour of their choice. If they choose the ‘?’, they can choose a number between 1 and 5. When a joker is used, you must cross out an exclamation mark on your sheet.
When you fill a column with crosses, you get the points below that column. If you do this first, you get the top beneath that column, the second player who fills a whole column circles the bottom number.
If you complete a colour, you can claim that colour bonus. If you’re the first to do so you get the higher value.
The game ends immediately after the turn in which at least one player succeeds in circling
The second colour bonus (the value does not matter, either high or low).
Whoever has the most points wins!
One of many Schmidt roll-and-writes!
