Welcome in Baron Voodoo, a dice game in which you don't roll the dice!
You're a Loa, a voodoo god who become the new god of death in place of Baron Samedi.
To take his place, you have to catch the more soul in one night, before the another Loa !
To catch a soul, the main mechanism seems easy: move one of your dice (of your color) to catch a dice. But after this action, you have a lot of optional possibilities who make the game more strategic:
- pay one skull to change the face of the die
- apply the power of the face of the dice
- pay 2 skulls to play a new turn
- Valid your combo of dice in putting them down on the spirit world of your player board to increase your score
As a Loa, you have also special power. At the beginning or the end of your turn, you can apply it for free or pay one skull to apply the power of anther player!
During the game, depending the quantity of "special white game" you will catch, you can also become the "Baron Samedi" and use all power for free.
The game finishes when a player have 18, 15 or 12 points, depending the quantity of players.
After that, all dice are getting down to the spirit world to look at the majorities on each colors and check who is the new Baron Samedi!
