While at GenCon we were introduced to the game Square Shooters. Square Shooters are 9 nine dice that are printed with a full deck of 52 cards plus 2 jokers. Their patent-pending design places the playing card faces on the dice in such a way that popular card hands from poker to rummy can be rolled. For instance, every straight and royal flush card for every suit is on a different die; and every rank card is on a different die! You literally can use them to play almost any playing card game!
The dice are specially designed so you can roll hands for rummy, poker, 21, etc. It’s great when playing with little ones who understand the games but can’t hold 7 cards in their hands. I love that the directions not only come for playing a Square Shooters game, but they list directions for a ton of other games. It is a self contained game, and that can easily throw it into a purse, backpack, or bag and be taken everywhere!
Square Shooters can be literally hours of fun for you and your family, because there are just soooo many games you can use this to play with. I highly recommend this for everybody!
Not only that the wonderful people that created Square Shooters is hosting a Q4 2013 contest which invites creative gamers to submit game designs to their Square Shooters Game Design Forum (Forum.SquareShooters.com). Submissions will be judged and a grand prize awarded for the best overall game design, along with prizes for “best in category.” For registration go to www.thats-how-i-roll.com
So check out this game out and if you are a game design maybe you should try your luck!
