The classic dice bidding game (with 6-sided dice)

Yes, this is a different set of Liar’s Dice from the one published last week. There are two differences. First, this set uses 6-sided dice instead of 4-sided dice. The gameplay is similar, but the increased possibilities make this game just a little more challenging. Second, these sets with 6-sided dice are much more affordable!

I have packaged three convenient sets (2 Players, 4 Players, and 8 Players).

Liar’s Dice is a fun, quick game that you can play between games, for light entertainment with company, or even as a mini game in your RPGs. Each player begins with five dice. On your turn you have the choice to raise the bid or challenge the last bid. When a challenge occurs, the loser must give up a die. The last player with dice wins. You can learn more about the game on this website or on its TGC pages: 2 Players4 Players8 Players.

The classic dice bidding game

Some games are very old. This game was apparently invented by the Incas and brought over to Europe by sailors. I have packaged three convenient sets (2 Players, 4 Players, and 8 Players) using four-sided dice.

A Fresh Take on the Traditional Suits

There’s nothing like a traditional deck of cards for flexibility on family game night. The little kids don’t need to be able to read; just recognize numbers, letters, and symbols. The number of games you can play with a regular 52 card deck is probably uncountable. The whole thing fits in your pocket. That is a list that’s hard to beat.

But there’s no reason you can’t have fun with tradition and give it a new spin. That’s what I did with this set of cards. I took the same classic suits and gave them fresh symbols. Sometimes that meant something reflecting real life more closely (e.g. hearts), and sometimes that meant playing with words (e.g. clubs). The face cards got a new spin as well. You can learn more about the cards on this website or on their TGC page.

Pen & Sword: A Trick-Taking Dice Game for Two Players

Pen & Sword is one of my favourite designs. It is an easy to learn, quick to play game for two players in the style of old fashioned trick-taking card games – only, this is a trick-taking dice game. The beauty of this style of game is that it is highly replayable. The more you play, the more you develop your skill at the game. That said, you are always at the mercy of lady fortune, meaning that experienced players and newbies can still enjoy playing together.

Pen & Sword is now available to buy print-on-demand through The Game Crafter (TGC), an American business based in Wisconsin. You can learn more about the game on this website or on its TGC page.

This game is perfect for date night, for playing between longer games, or for introducing new and young gamers to the delight of tabletop games.
