As influential sovereigns, grow your estates through trade and commerce. Combine the dice to your advantage and discover the strategy that will lead you to victory. The famous strategy game now an all dice game!
The "dice version" of The Castles of Burgundy.
The game comes with 5 dice: A timer die, 2 color dice, and 2 number dice.
Like the board game, the goal is to fill as many things on your board, and get the most points, mostly by completing color regions.
One player rolls the dice, and then all players pick 2 dice to use: A color die, representing a type of hex on the board, and a number.
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 on it, and its own reward.
When completing a region of hexes, you score points, as well as a reward that you can then cross off to activate, such as workers and monks that let you treat a color or number die as having any value, and silver that lets you use a second combination of dice on a turn.
The timer die makes the pace of the game, and also triggers a "shipping" action, where players can cross off collected crates for points.
There are 4 different board layouts, Solo mode is also included.
