The Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game - a small paper and pencil dice game based on The Castles of Burgundy board game.

The Loire valley in the 16th century. As influential sovereigns, grow your estates through strategic use of the different dice.

The Castles of Burgundy: The Dice Game comes with 5 dice: A timer die, 2 number dice, and 2 color dice. Like the board game on which it's based on, the idea is to fill as many spaces on your board, and get the most points, mostly by completing colored regions, by making the best use of the dice rolls.

Each round, one player rolls the dice, and then all players pick 2 dice to use: one color die, representing a type of hex on the board, and one number die. A hex can only be filled on the board if it's adjacent to an already-filled hex, or your starting castle, and each type of hex has its own rules for which number can be used to fill it - and its own reward.

Completing a region of hexes scores you points and a reward which you circle to indicate it's now available. Rewards include: workers that allow you to modify number dice, monks that let you change the color of a color die and silverlings which allow you to use a second dice combination in one turn. Each reward can only be used once. When you use a reward, cross it off. 

The timer die sets the pace of the game. When a double timer icon is rolled, it also triggers the Shipping action: players can immediately sell their crates of goods for points.

The 200-page score pad includes 4 different board layouts. Rules for solo play are provided in the rulebook in addition to multi-player rules. 

Contents: 1 200-page pad with 4 different estates, 5 custom dice, 5 pencils, rules.
