A few locals found a cavern that has proven to be Auriferous! You and some of your friends have decided to try your luck at striking it rich. However, you don’t have the knowledge or tools… yet! Upgrade your equipment and before you know it, you’ll be Striking Gold!

If you can strike the most gold from the mine, you'll win!


Auriferous is an easy to learn dice game for 2-4 players. Start off by just rolling five dice. Each turn, you'll be able to use those dice to upgrade your tools! Each of your tools allows you to alter your rolls and mitigate any bad luck. They might even let you find gold or steal it from other players!

On your turn:

  1. Roll your dice

  2. Use any tools your miners have unlocked (roll more, re-roll, bump, steal, save)

  3. Send a miner onto your player board mineshaft to add or upgrade a tool OR Strike Gold from the limited supply!

Every turn, your tools will get better and you'll be that much closer to victory! When the gold mine is empty, the game is over! Don't wait too long to strike!
