This game is a variation on the game "Shut the Box". Pick a suit, lay it out face up ace = 1, all face cards 10. No bizarro cards (omnihedron, crone, etc. Only numbered cards or face cards, Dice:I'm sure most folks in our shared realm of gameness have a bunch strange dice. grab a pile of them. Game play: lay out all cards face up. Pick from one to 4 dice from your dice pool. roll dice. the total number of all dice is the number of points in cards you need to turn over. keep repeating in turns ( if multi player) or alone if solitare, until all cards are flipped or you bust and cant use your points up.
gameplay Player 1 All my acorn cards are face up. I choose a d20, d8, and d10. I roll 9 on d20 4 on d8 and 8 on d10. that totals to 21 points to burn. I can flip over a king and beast for 20, and the ace for one. or I can flip a 7, and a 3, and an eleven.
Player 2 Chooses 2 dice, d6 and d4 rolls 3 on d6, and 1 on d4. total 4 Can flip four points worth i.e. the four card, or three and one.
play goes back and forth until; one player cant go.
Had several gamed with my 13 year old son, good use for old dice.
