Martian Dice: Swoop, Scoop and Score!

More details


Add to wishlist


In Martian Dice, your mission, fellow Martians, is to swoop down on the pathetic denizens of the primitive planet Earth and scoop up as many of the inhabitants as you can manage. We are interested in samples of the Chicken, Cow, and Human populations so that we can determine which of them is actually in charge. The Earthlings might manage to put up a feeble defense, but surely nothing that a small taste of your Death Rays can't handle. Make Mars proud ? be the first Martian to fill your abduction quota!

In Martian Dice you will roll 13 custom dice in an effort to set aside (abduct) Humans, Chickens, and Cows. With each roll you must first set aside any Tanks, representing the human military coming to fend off your alien invasion. Then you may choose one type of die to set aside as well - one of the earthlings to abduct, or Death Rays to combat the military. At the end of your turn, if you have at least as many Death Rays as Tanks, then you may abduct the earthlings you've been setting aside. You can't pick any type of Earthling twice in one turn, but if you manage to abduct at least one of each you'll score a bonus!

With each roll you will ask yourself, do you feel lucky?

From the package:
1. Swoop
Roll great big handfuls of Martian Dice. Every roll will be some combination of pesky Tanks, sizzling Death Rays, and terrified fleeing Humans, Cows, and Chickens.

2. Scoop
Set aside the Tanks, then decide whether you want to keep the Death Rays (for zapping Tanks) or abduct a type of earthling (for points).

3. Score!
Keep Swooping & Scooping until you are happy with your haul or run out of Martian Dice. Earn points for your abducted earthlings, but ONLY if you've got enough Death Rays to fight off the Tanks.
