In Ninja Dice, a push-your-luck dice game with a Japanese theme, players compete to see who is the greatest Ninja.
To play, every player rolls House dice to create unique combinations of challenges including Locked areas, Guards, and nosy Residents. A Player rolls their Skill dice to come up with three ways to beat these challenges - Stealth skills, Fighting skills, and Lock picking. Players can also roll special Fortune faces that augment dice, but only if the dice they are augmenting lie in specific positions on the table, a system that is new and unique to games of this kind!
Beat the challenges to gain points and escape, and the next player can try to beat a new house. Fail and the player can escape with what they've stolen, or remain and roll again - but each re-roll adds the threat of the other Ninja, who can now roll Threat dice, allowing them to shoot the active Ninja – and each other – to steal treasure! Constant interaction between all the Ninjas forces all players to be alert at all times.
Play continues over three rounds of increasing difficulty with the highest scoring player winning.
