For fans of Dragon Farkle, Yahtzee, Scrabble, and other dice-rolling-word-making games you know.
It’s the best double-entendre, dice-rolling, word-making, screw-with-your-neighbor game out there! Roll your dice, collect consonants, and make words that fit the category for bonus points.
To start the game, have the person with the longest first name roll their two dice to determine the bonus category. Words that fit this category will get 5 bonus points per letter.
To start each round, all players roll both of their dice at the same time. Players pick one die to save, then pass the other to your neighbor (to the right on odd rounds, to the left on even rounds). These two dice correspond to a consonant (see the scoresheet), which players write into the ‘letters’ box for that round. As you’re rolling and writing, be thinking about the bonus category and the best word you can make with your rolled consonants and as many vowels as you want. (Vowels score no points.) Words must have four letters or more.
Repeat this process of rolling two dice, passing a die, and writing a letter until one player announces ‘Word!’. Everyone else except for that person rolls two dice one last time to get one more consonant, then has 30 seconds to make the best-scoring word they can. You do not need to use all your letters, and unused letters remain available for future rounds — after you’ve made your word, cross off the letters you used.
Each person needs one score sheet, one pencil/pen and two D6 dice. Print off one ‘Bonus Category’ sheet for the table.
