About the game

A novel-based „dice-placement“ game with thematic elements. Tactical placement of your „gang“ (dice) could get you stars or more tiles for your hut, so you can reach the goal faster than the oppponents. But watch out, fighting the other groups isn’t always the best choice, use your „boys“ wisely to get to the perfect outcome for yourself.
