Take turns choosing custom dice to roll in an effort to eliminate all opponents or capture all bases while trying to survive the Island

"Hey, that was really fun! I want to play it again!"
- everyone who's played Island Dice. Seriously.

WHY WE'RE HERE:

The designers at Casual Dragon Games are excited to announce their new tabletop game of strategy, chance and fun! Island Dice!

(Final packaging may vary from mockup shown.)
NATURE OF THE GAME:

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 occupy all 4 of the native bases simultaneously, you have brought peace to the island, and you win.

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.

A little about the game play: For 2-4 Players, with 1-2 hours for a standard full game. Recommended ages 8 and up. The game includes 21 dice: 3 standard six-sided, 2 eight-sided and 16 (really cool) custom dice, with variable hex gaming terrain and player pieces, money tokens, etc.

Here's a link to the semi-final draft of the rules booklet to be included, which also includes a breakdown of the special dice and their uses...

The replay value is extremely high because each new game is different. Just enough exciting variables to offer solid strategic choices and approaches, but also not too complicated once you're playing. Each game setup can be unique, in part thanks to the random hex board format and varied terrains. A player's strategy may change from game to game or throughout a single game.

Here's a brief four minute video of Casual Dragon's Lead Developer Jason Gough sharing a simple overview of how the game works, using one of the rough concept demo game sets—we're excited to replace those soon with finished, fully-funded & professionally produced copies of Island Dice. Woohoo!



JOIN OUR GROWING FAN BASE:

The designers at Casual Dragon have invested three years into the development of Island Dice since its conception. There have been literally several hundred very successful play tests at events, game shops and homes. Player feedback using just our demo mockup has been overwhelmingly and consistently positive. Heck, even some celebrity endorsements!

A few famous folks enjoying Island Dice...
