Defcon Dice pits two players in a battle to claim dice before their opponent. Each player has a single action to either claim a die or modify the die. Players must carefully decide when to modify dice, and when to claim them. Players may also sacrifice dice, keeping any player from claiming them.
The game is played in a series of three rounds. The round ends when there are no more dice to claim, either because players claimed them all – or some have been discarded.
Each round players refill their hand back up to six cards, meaning any remaining cards in a players hand hang around until they can eventually claim a die to get rid of them.
This luck based game has a surprising amount of strategy all wrapped up in a quick fifteen to thirty minute game.
Designed for two players, the expansion that was released allows for up to four players in a battle royale or tournament style game.
Set in the cold war, players take the role of either the United States or the Soviets. The theme is only has light influence, mostly providing flavor.
Please Note: Defcon Dice is no longer in print due to the cost of manufacturing its custom box size. Our remaining inventory of boxes is now depleted as well. We do have a handful of decks remaining. If you’re looking for one of our dice games, consider Wilderness Dice: Bring Your Own Dice and it’s expansions.
