  • special board printable here-->[1]
  • 1 six-sided number die
  • black ice house die (hop,tip,wild,swap,aim,dig)

Rules

  • Roll die

****Rolling a one or a two releases and navigates the small piece
****Rolling a three or a four releases and navigates the medium piece
****Rolling a five or a six relaeases and navigates the large piece

  • If land on a “?” symbol, roll black ice house die provided with stashes.


* hop--->move piece placed on “?” its pip count
***large move 3 spaces
***medium move 2 spaces
***small move 1 space

*tip--->place opponent of choice back to start
***must move same sized piece UNLESS impossible, then move opponent closest to you

*swap--->switch places with opponent of choice
***must switch with same size piece again if possible. If not, choose anyone.

*dig--->move opponent of choice back as many places as pip count

*aim--->move your own piece ahead its pip count

*wild--->choose any option (hop, tip, swap, dig, aim)

Extras


*If you must move your opponent back its pip count and such a move happens to fall on a “?” symbol, player DOES NOT re-roll on his/her next turn, but instead, simply rolls the black die.

*If a piece is approaching an occupied space, bump opponent occupying the space back to start!
