# Rainbow Roll Dice Game

Race to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but donâ€™t let any mischievous leprechauns trick you into pushing your luck too far!

Rainbow Roll is a push-your-luck dice game for 2 or more treasure seekers from ages 8 and up.
It includes 13 dice and a dice cup to hold them.

## Rules

### Dice Breakdown, etc.

I assume the Rainbow Dice are custom-decorated. Do you have a break-down of the different colours on the faces of each of the dice?

Scoring takes a lot of math... Have you considered scoring one point for every face of six, and then maybe one point for every face that matches the Lucky Die? Maybe one point for every die lower than the Lucky Die? This obviously reduces the score-attack vibe somewhat, so I'd want to hear your ideas on how much this affects your design goals.

There's kind of a Cosmic Wimp-Out and/or Zilch vibe going on with this game, and the shape of the cup is a nice touch. Seems like this would be a fun game to play with relatives when we just want to throw some dice around and see what happens with them.

### Every number/color

Every number/color combination is represented twice among the 12 rainbow dice.

Starting with a die comprised of a Red 6 / Orange 5 / Yellow 4 / Green 3 / Blue 2 / Purple 1, move each color down 1 (and wrap around) to get all 6 unique dice configurations x 2 per configuration to get the 12 dice.

There is a bit of math, but I could not find an elegant way and cohesive way to score smaller values. We're used to Farkle with a lot of math too (albeit with round numbers at least).

It's definitely fun and more interesting (more decisions) compared to something like Zombie Dice.

### BTW what ever happened to the Pencil Game?!?!

I thought that was a super GREAT little small game... Did you manage to get it into a school or a supply store?! I could easily picture \$5.00 for a set of 3 Pencils. Something that kids can AFFORD to buy when a parent gives them the option to...

It was called "Battle Pencils" I believe?!

Just curious because that design had real merit! It was simple enough that kids could understand and play and it was slick enough with fancy artwork to make the design look cool...

Anyhow, just curious.

The idea (and sell sheet) is still here on Battle Pencils. Zero publishers or pencil manufacturers have shown interest and I don't quite have the acumen or knowledge to run a kickstarter yet. I really want them to be made for my 3 kids and because I am a big kid myself!
