Entry for the ROLL & WRITE GAME DESIGN CONTEST.

This game is played with 5 regular d6 dice and with 5 dice with 6 different colors on each of the side (example is with brown, red, green, blue, yellow and white, but it can be played with dice with any 6 different colors.




Sheet comprises of 6 columns with colored gemstones (smoky quartz, ruby, emerald, sapphire, citrine and diamond) that match the colors on colored dice. Players are collecting gemstones by rolling dice and matching gemstone with values. Leftmost column (smoky quartz) is the least valuable gemstone that players try to have the least at the end of the game. Rightmost column (diamond) is the most valuable gemstone that players try to have the most at the end of the game. All columns from left to right should have ascending sum of gemstones.

By combining colored and numbered dice into pairs, the players try to have sums of all gemstones in sorted ascending order from left to right. Players must carefully choose pairs to achieve ascending sum of gemstones, but also to enable themselves enough options in future turns and leave less options to non active players.

For the dice with colored sides, have you thought of making a color-blind friendly way to tell the colors apart?

Hi Caroline!

That can be resolved in production by making dice with various gemstones having different colors but also different shapes (hence it can be differentiated by either color or shape).

Hope you like the game
