ElemenZ is a simple to understand and relatively quick dice-rolling challenge game. Incorporating a push-your-luck style of play with 4 sets of custom dice. In each game, multiple tactical 'combo' options allow a player to drain opponents of their dice, while trying to control the wild element 'Z' and convert it to one of the four main elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water. Each player chooses from four different alien races, Master of a single element, each with variable race powers - in a battle to become the Master Zee.
The game is actually 2-in-1. The 3-4 player challenge game and a very different 2 player tug-of-war game, as players attempt to control the flow of energy and energise the monolith with their element dice. ElemenZ is an easy game to learn but nonetheless offers much tactical depth, easily grasped by both kids and adults.
