Dig Down Dwarf

A dice tossing, gem snagging, thrilling race to the Throne!





Dig Down Dwarf is a fast-paced dice game where each player takes on the role of a character vying for the empty throne in Black Mountain.

On your turn, you draw two random gems from the tin and place them on the table, adding to the mine. You then roll four six-sided dice. Gems require a certain number sequence in order to mine them; roll that sequence, and you can take all the gems of that type available in the mine! As the game progresses, more and more gems will be added to the table, giving players more choices as to which gems they want to try to gain. Sometimes you’ll need to press your luck in order to succeed! Failure to roll what is required is not a death sentence, as you will gain a relic card when this occurs. Relic cards will give you a scoring oportunity, or can be discarded for their one time use.

Each character is also unique in that they each gain bonus points for acquiring the most gems of a certain type. They also each have a unique persistant ability.

The game ends when no gems can be added to the mine and all players have had an equal number of turns. The player with the most valuable collection of gems will be crowned the new King of Black Mountain!



The super tense MineShaft Mayhem returns, but it has been completely revamped! Now you can play Dig Down Dwarf in a strategic and blood-pumping solo-mode! MineShaft Mayhem will be a FREE Print and Play file that will fit on a single sheet of standrad 8.5 x 11" paper. You will only need to print it one time. I am super excited to offer such a exciting solo experience for both my solo-play fans and my PnP fans! Enjoy!
