Quadwrangle is dice game played with a board with 9 columns. Each column has a counter that starts in the middle and you attempt to move a counter by rolling certain dice combinations to your scoring area. (It is a bit like playing 9 games of tug of war simultaneously.) The winner is the first to get 3 counters in their scoring area.
The dice are rolled in a manner similar to Yahtzee: Roll 5 dice. Keep the ones and reroll the rest. You may reroll up to three times.
The nine columns are marked:
- Number (from 1-6): Roll a pair of those numbers move the counter 1 space in the column, triple 2 spaces, etc.
- Run: You are trying to roll a straight (12345 for 2 spaces, or 23456 for 3 spaces)
- High/Low: You are trying to roll a total over 23 or under 12. There are bonuses for rolling more extreme totals.
