How to play?

Are you ready to enter the tales of the Grimm brothers? The time has come to start writing your own story in this magical world. Dice Upon a Time is a family game with clear and simple rules, yet enough depth for more experienced players. In Dice upon a Time you play a Grimm character with a unique ability. Your main goal is to collect Adventure Points by completing quests that you get in the Town or from the King. To do so you will need to collect and deliver resources (apple, gold, bread) or a special quest item. To move around in the world of the Grimm Tales represented by the game board functioning as a map, you use a set of 5 special dice.

In your turn you place a die on the map to activate the path you’d like to take. Move your figure, and take advantage of the effect of your die’s special face.

If somebody has been there before you that round, you’ll place your die on top of theirs. But be careful, there can be maximum 3 dice on top of each other, so it’s easy to get blocked.

On your journey you will encounter the well-known characters of the Grimm Tales, who influence your adventures by Story cards and Magic Item cards. Story cards were prepared by Lady Fortune, while Magic Items will wait in your pocket until you use them to save your plans or balk others’.

Why is it Fun?

Original Grimm characters Do you want to be your childhood’s favourite fairy tale character? They are still awesome and now they are waiting for you in this game.

Special dice
Do you like dice? This is a game for you. Here you will find a pile of unique dice. Place them with special face up to activate their effects on you journey.

Optimal rules
We took the game into schools, and played it many times with families. The rules are optimal for kids, but the game mechanism has enough depth and ombinability for more experienced gamers.

Unique dice tower building movement mechanism Do you like to build towers? You can do it here with your dice. You’ll quite often need to override previously placed dice to get to your destination or to win a bid – or to trap the opponents.

Peaceful game OR messing with other players?
You decide. The game offers you both ways: live and let live (or even help your fellow players) – OR – using your dice and Magic Items to balk your opponents’ plans.

Having bad luck? Keep rolling!
There are four special fields in the corners of the board where you can place even your lowest value dice. The Spirit Animals will listen and help you by granting you advantages for the next round. This way you can turn your snag into an asset.

Dice upon a time Little Red Riding Hood received a quest from her beloved mother, to take some food to her grandma. he knew, this 2 Adventure Points quest could be her road to the victory, even if the road was shadowed by the wolf. She chose the latter one and activated the Wolf Field. This choice made her become part of the Grimm Tales, and thus one of the many characters you can choose from in Dice Upon a Time.
