This is a dice game that is similar to Yahtzee with more strategy and special abilities. (20:07)
This week on Board Games with Scott, I’m going to talk about Um Krone und Kragen, which is a 2006 dice game where your goal is to impress royalty by rolling dice well. In the game, you roll and attempt to make good combinations of dice. Many different combinations will bring royalty cards to your side, which you can then use to become more powerful for your next attempt.
While the game is for 2-5 players, I suggest you play it with no more than 4. In fact, at a recent event, I pulled out two copies in order to have 2 3-player games rather than one large game. The game doesn’t change much with more players and only gets longer.
