How To Play
"Luck O' The Dice" is a game of dice, cards, and coins for 2-4 players (ages 7+). The object is to accumulate the most coins by completing dice cards, rolling Pot O’ Gold combos, and stealing coins from other players. Each turn consists of three steps: Leprechaun Play, Dice Play, and "Press Your Luck."
During Leprechaun Play, players interact with their opponents by playing leprechaun cards. There are seven types: Subtracter, Snatcher, Sharer, Stealer, Skipper, Slicer, and Staller. As the names suggest, these cards allow players to impede their opponents' progress as well as speed their own.
During Dice Play, players roll their dice up to two times to complete combinations found on the dice cards in their hands. Players can earn more coins if they complete the combination in one roll than if it takes them two rolls. Pot O' Gold rolls are combinations that require all six dice to complete and do not require a card. These combinations are worth the most coins.
"Press Your Luck" is an optional step that allows a player to roll a third time. If unsuccessful, the player may be penalized.
The game ends as soon as a player completes five dice cards. The player with the most coins at the end of the game wins.
The video below shows just how easy it is to play "Luck O' The Dice," but please remember to watch it in HD (click on the gear on the bottom right side of the screen and select 1080p). You can also watch this presentation at your own pace on our website.
"Luck O' The Dice" has evolved throughout the development phase. The initial game did not have coins, leprechaun cards, or "Press Your Luck" rolls. These elements were slowly added to the game as we experimented and played the different versions of the game. Click the link below to view the different versions of cards. We hope that you enjoy seeing how the game has come to be what it is today.
We recently had our first impartial review of our game. David McMillan is part of Nashville Area Gamers Association and approached us about receiving a copy of our game to test. We sent him a copy for his review and to get feedback from other gamers in the Nashville, Tennessee area. He really enjoyed the game and said that other gamers in the area also enjoyed the game.

Risks and challenges
Quality Control: To make sure that the product we produce is of high quality, we have requested sample products from our potential production companies. Once we choose a company, we will first request a beta version of our product so that we can approve the quality of the materials and ensure the outcome of the final product.
Regulations: We will follow all of the laws and regulations set in place for the production of board games.
Production Cost: Although we have estimates and quotes from multiple production companies, we could face unexpected production costs. For this reason, we are attempting to produce a higher quantity of games so that the cost per game is reduced.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We have estimated a cost of $9,000 for the production of 2,000 copies (the minimum amount we can order) of the game with cardboard coins. This does not include cost of shipping the games. The $11,000 will be used to produce 2,000 games and help cover the costs of shipping and any unforeseen expenses in getting the game produced.
