Pen & Sword

A trick-taking dice game for two players

Pen & Sword is a quick-playing, easy-to-learn dice game for two players. Players begin each round by rolling their set of 10 dice behind their screen. They then play through 9 tricks until only one die is left. Games generally consist of 3 rounds. The first player to 14 points wins.

Tricks are won by the highest number of symbols. Ties are resolved according to one of two rock-paper-scissor-type hierarchies of colour and symbol. The green die beats all the others. In the case of identical dice, a challenge is triggered and players play additional dice until someone is a clear victor in a winner takes all scenario.
