Lucky!!! 14 Jan 2014
By Elle M. Newman - Published on Amazon.com
I love the fact that this is an indie game and made in Winona, MN the town I live! I am an avid card player and love to discover new games though usually they fall far short of my hopes. Not so with this game!

I thought posting basic rules for playing CARDS vs. DICE (Strategically Lucky) would be very helpful for someone who has never played the game.

Number of players: 2 to 4 players
Contents of the game are: Two dice, 24 cards (4 each of 1 through 6), 25 "LUCKY" cards and the “Rules” card. All in a nice compact plastic case.

1: Each game typically lasts 5 to 10 minutes. Before beginning decide how many rounds will be played. The player that wins the most rounds wins the game.
2: Shuffle the cards and divide them evenly amongst the players.
3: Put out the stack of LUCKY cards facing up to form a draw pile.
4: Decide who goes first by having all players roll the dice, the person with the highest roll will start the game (game moves clockwise).
5: You roll the two dice and try to play cards from your hand to exactly match the sum of the two dice. You can discard one or as many cards as you want as long as the card(s) you are discarding match exactly the sum of the two dice. You can discard only once per roll and then it’s the next person's turn to roll the dice.
6: You collect a LUCKY card every time you play two cards from your hand that exactly match the pips of the two dice. For example if you roll a 5 and a 1 on the dice, you would need to discard only the 5 and 1 cards to collect a LUCKY card.
7: If on your turn you can't play any cards to match the sum of the two dice, you must take all the cards on the table others have played and add them to your own cards. Then it is the next player's turn.
8: There are two ways to win. The first is to discard all of the cards in your hand before your opponent(s). The second is by collecting 7 LUCKY cards before your opponent(s).

TIPS:
1: I like getting rid of my 1 cards right away, as I don't want this to be the last card on my hand. Remember you are rolling two dice.
2: Having a 6 as the last card in your hand gives you the best chance of winning the game by a lucky roll.
3: The game is recommended for 2 to 4 player, but works best with 3 or 4 players.
4: Write things on the back of the LUCKY cards to turn it into a party game.

Cards vs. Dice is a good, clean and fun family game that both kids and adults can enjoy. It has good replay value, you'll always end up playing it for several rounds. 5 out of 5. I Highly recommend it to everyone.

Addicting, and brilliantly simple little game 5 Mar 2013
By MFan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Whenever we end up playing this game, we have to go for at least 4 or 5 rounds, or until lunch break is over. It's quite addicting and engaging. Brilliant in its simplicity and design. I'm usually not much for card-based games as I usually get lost in the rules, but the rules for this one are quick and easy to grasp, yet the game is solid and never predictable. It's rare to see this much fun packed in such a small package!

I was gifted this game and just love it. I ended up getting it for a few of my family members so we can play when we go visit them and they enjoy playing it too! It's fun to play and easy to learn the rules. Get it!

Fun game, though maybe overpriced. 26 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I don't write many amazon reviews but there's a lot of very unhelpful ones for this game, so here's my take. The game works basically like this: You roll the two dice and try to play cards from your hand to match the sum of the dice. If you can play all the cards from your hand, you win instantly. If you can't play any cards to match the dice though, you must draw all the cards on the table others have played. To make things a little more complex, if you can play two cards from your hand that exactly match the pips of the two dice, you draw a lucky token. Do this seven times and you win. The decision making comes from the fact that the two win conditions are sort of at odds with each other. Hold a lot of cards and you can collect lucky cards easily, but someone else might get a lucky roll and go out in the meantime. The nice thing is, in any given game every player is probably going to have a chance for a lucky winning roll. Luck, of course, is the key factor in this game. If you can't stand to play something like yahtzee for that reason, then you probably won't like this. However-like yahtzee, there is a fun amount of decision making to do, even if it ultimately won't sway the game nearly as much as the dice themselves.

One last thing- I received this game as a gift and had a lot of fun with it. Maybe more than four stars worth. But before spending $14.99 on it here's a warning. The contents of the game are: Two dice, 24 cards (4 each of 1-6) and 25 "lucky cards". The quality of the cards and packaging is not particularly good, and as you might have noticed, it could easily be played with any deck of cards, two dice, and 25 of anything you have lying around. Get this for someone as a gift and they'll probably enjoy it. If you're concerned with getting your money's worth though, a deck of bicycle cards is much higher quality, more versatile, and a fifth the price.
