How to Play:
Your mission in Martian Dice, is to swoop down on the pathetic denizens of the primitive planet "Earth", and to 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. On You Turn: 1. Roll all of the available dice. (On the first roll of your turn this will be all 13 dice; on later rolls it depends on how many dice you set aside earlier). If there are no available dice, proceed to scoring. 2. Set aside all Tanks, adding them to any Tanks set aside earlier this turn. 3. From the remaining dice, choose ONE type (Chickens, Cows, Humans, or Death Rays) and set aside ALL dice of that type. Chickens, Cows, or Humans may NOT be chosen if you have already set that type aside this turn. If you cannot set aside any dice based on these restrictions, your turn is over, proceed to scoring. 4. You may choose to end your turn and proceed to scoring, or return to step 1 to continue rolling. SCORING: Only score if you have at least as many Death Rays as Tanks set aside. 1 Point for each die set aside that is Human, Cow, or Chicken. 3 Bonus points if you set aside at least one Human, Cow, AND Chicken.
My family loves games especially games that are unique. This game, Martian Dice, defiantly got my interest! Because my husband and I love to play games, it is nice to have games that allow for only 2 players or more. And, thankfully this game matches the criteria.
The game is really quick to learn and fun to play. I love games that are easy to learn. The instructions provide an example turn which is helpful to visually see how the game is played.
I thought the premise of the game was a lot of fun pretending to be the invading martians who need to collect humans, chickens, and cows while making sure their death rays will outnumber the human tanks.
Each player takes a turn with the 13 dice. You tally your points after each turn and the first player to reach 25 points win. The best part about this game is that if you don't want to go up to 25 points, then you don't have to. My husband and I had fun seeing you could the most points in one round.
This is definitely a game I recommend because it is fun and easy to learn! You won't be disappointed.
