Today’s new arrival is the second edition of Knatsch from Abacusspiele:
Knights, a.k.a. Knatsch, is a dice game in which players attempt to capture cards to fulfill the victory conditions. Players may win by capturing four castles, capturing three castles and toppling the King, or capturing two castles and winning three tournaments.
Each card displays a dice combination that must be beaten to win the card. Dice are rolled several times with the player saving good dice, throwing out sixes, and rerolling others for a better score. Special cards add a lot of flavor to the dice battles. Some special cards add an extra roll or an extra die for combat; others help you defend or attack castles.
