About


 Help build the town of Stormtryne from the Catacombs universe! In Catacombs Cubes, you take on the role of a Catacombs hero and compete to expand the small village into its full glory!

Use wooden cubes to build unique structures, and then add them to the Village Grid. Put a tile in the right place to enable combos that can quickly turn the tide of a game.

Strategic tile placement, efficient resource management, and timely combos will determine the victor!

We are excited to be releasing our first non-flicking game. We hope that you'll support us as we expand our catalogue with this familiar but yet very unique Catacombs title!

How To Play

 Note: Only the English manual is available for download.

The Quarry
 

 At the start of the game, the players choose whether they would like to play with dice or with tokens. The Quarry Foreman then draws or rolls the Quarry Offers, one for each player. During their turn, each player gets to pick a Quarry Offer.

                                      Each Quarry Offer allows a player to collect Cube Pieces or perform special actions, such as contribute to the town's Palace or transform one of their existing Cube Pieces.

Building a Tile
 

Instead of drafting from The Quarry, players have the option to Build a Structure on their turn.

Players can build either their Residence Tile, or one of the available tiles in the Village Plans. To build a structure, a player must have the adequate Cube Pieces in their Construction Yard or Warehouse to physically replicate the shape of the cubes on a blueprint.

Once built, the player places the tile in the Village Grid next to an existing tile. The player earns various rewards based on the structure they completed, and based on where they placed the tile.

Coins

Players can earn Coins when they build a structure in the town. Coins can be spent at any time during a player's turn which allow them to perform additional actions. Otherwise, saving coins can potentially earn players some Victory Points during the end game scoring.

Contributing to the Palace
 

 Unlike other structures, the Palace is built over the course of the game by all players. Each contribution a player makes earns them some rewards. To contribute to the Palace, a player must get the Palace Action Token or spend a Red Coin.
 

Only the player that contributes the last cube to the Palace gets to actually add the palace to the town, and reaps extra rewards.

 End of the Game

Once the Village Grid has reached its maximum size, the game ends. The maximum size is determined by the number of players, for example, a 4 player game ends at a 4x5 Village Grid. 

 Players who decided to hold on to their Coins for the end of the game will get extra Victory Points for having the most of one type of Coin.

The player with the most Victory Points wins!
