Roll your dice and try to create a pair, three of a kind, four of a kind, etc., or a straight by lining up your dice with the dice already on the game grid. But, here's the catch... You need to do this while doing what the drawn card says!
You might get lucky and only have to start your turn with a three of a kind. Or, you might have to "whistle while you work!" First player to get rid of all their dice wins in this LAUGH OUT LOUD strategy game for the whole family!
This was a game that I bought because the store said "spend over $100, get free shipping", there was a big sale on at the time and since I loathe their parking lot and I was buying a couple of board games anyways, so this tipped me over that $100 mark. Because I hadn't eagerly bought it, it sat on my shelf for a couple of months before it was finally opened, when a friend said we should give it a go. Now, the cover says over 100 dice, there are 101.... kind of a let down to be honest and if I had known that beforehand, I wouldn't have bought it because that's just annoying.
Anywho, a two player game you get fifty dice, three to four player game you get twenty-five dice each. The aim is to place all your dice, thankfully the cards can make this harder or easier. On your turn, take a card, follow any instructions, roll the yellow dice, which determines how many of your dice you then roll and then place. Most of the cards are silly fun, bound to bring out some giggles, such as "everyone asks you random questions during your turn and you must answer them all with 'Grandpa's Underpants". This is clearly an USA based game, one card makes you name the states of america, based on the total of your dice, this card is my nemesis!
This isn't an amazing game and I can't say that I really enjoy it, but if it is pulled down off the shelf I will at least play it and enjoy it enough to pass the time.
