User Summary: Players choose to play either 9 or 18 holes of golf, and then navigate the course by rolling custom dice and trying to sink the ball in a few shots as possible, by collecting matching colored spots on the dice. Players who finish a hole under par collect colored gems, which serve both as resources that can be spent to modify a player's board position, or as victory points. The player with the most gems at the end of the course is the winner.
The Basic version of Box of Golf is slightly smaller than the other editions, and includes wooden gems and golf tees, rather than glass gems and figurines. Gameplay is identical to other versions.
