WATCH: I Played This Game For the First Time and Now I Need To Get One
I've played a lot of board games, but had never seen this unique dice game until a few nights ago, and it's amazingly addicting.
I was at Arcadia National Bar the other night playing some pinball and notices some people playing this game on a table and not rolling dice, but almost throwing them. It's called Tumblin' Dice. That makes sense.
It's hard to find though. None of the big board game manufacturers seem to make this. This board is homemade as are most you'll find for sale online.
Board Game Geek has a listing for Tumblin' Dice explaining the rules.
A dexterity dice game consisting of four sets of colored dice one either slides, rolls, or flicks down a stepped surface. Usually one slides the die for better accuracy. After each person has slid their 4 dice, points are scored. You score the die roll times a multiplier of either 1×, 2×, 3×, or 4× depending on which area of the board the die is on. (Dice which land in the 0× region are immediately removed from play.) High scoring rolls are targets for opponents. Four rounds are played and the player with the most points win.
This particular board had a -1x multiplier along with the 1, 2, 3 and 4x multipliers meaning too weak a roll and you lose points. You can also knock other players dice off the playfield at the risk of yours doing the same. The first person to reach 100 wins.
Have you ever played this game before? Where can I get one?
