InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that three of its clients, inventors from Lowell, Mass., have designed a game that pits players against each other in a race to accumulate a predetermined amount of points or uncover an instant win card. This invention is patented.
The "Dice Board Game" would be designed to allow for simultaneous game play. The invention would combine luck and strategy, featuring specialized dice and movement spaces. These features would allow for a variety of movement possibilities and multiple ways to win. The Dice Board Game would be ideal for use when entertaining friends and family, and easy to learn.
The object of the game of Dice Board Game would be to outmaneuver the opponent to be the first player to accumulate a predetermined number of points or find the "Game Over" card. The game would consist of a game board, small and large point cards, covering cards, tokens, dice and barriers. The board would be a 15-inch square piece of wood, plastic or cardboard. The game board would feature an interconnected series of movement spaces, home bases for each player along two opposite edges and a protection space in the center. Each player would have five home-base spaces. Each home base space would be connected to a start space, which would connect to a series of movement spaces. The special space in the center would be called the "Center of Protection." The small and large point cards would read 10, 20, 30, 50, 100 and Game Over. If the player receives the Game Over card, then that player automatically wins the game. The Game Over piece is always positioned in a home base space. The large point cards are used to keep track of each player's points. The small point cards would be placed under the covering cards on the board. Each player would begin the game with five tokens that would be moved around the board to collect points. The dice are specially designed for this game.
They would feature numbers on five sides and an X on the sixth side. The barriers are used during game setup to conceal the positions of the points cards. The barriers would also serve to hold the large points cards. To begin, players would set the barriers on the game board and place the small points cards underneath the covering cards on their side of the board. The first player would roll the dice and both players would move the tokens corresponding to the numbers on the dice. This means that an opponent may move his or her tokens during the other player's turn. If a player rolls an X, then that player gets to take another turn. Players may move diagonally or laterally (backwards moves are possible if a player's token reaches the Center of Protection.) Each time a player lands on a new space, they would reveal the small point card and receive the appropriate amount of points for that card. If a player jumps another player's token, that token is return to its home base space. If a player reaches an opponent's home base space, that player receives 25 points and can choose to move backwards or re-enter the board on one of his or her home base spaces. A player wins by being the first to receive the predetermined amount of points or turning over the Game Over card. Additional rules are available upon request.
