Product Description

Product Description

Mobilise your fingers for the ultimate six-sided skirmish! Field an army of cubes and then place them strategically on the board. Each cube has special powers: Strikers and Skulks are strong on the attack, while Grunts are better for defense. Once your cubes are in position, sound the trumpets and let the flicking begin! Try to knock your opponent's king off the board, aiming carefully not to get caught behind enemy lines. Triumph in your quest and crown yourself the Cube King! This game is easy to teach, different every time you play and challenging to master. Brothers Oliver and Gary Sibthorpe have created just the right mix with Cube Quest – a game that perfectly meshes strategy with skill. You can tell that they put many hours into perfecting this balance evidence by the unique group of cubes included within. Be sure to experiment with different mixes of cubes as well as formations.

Box Contains

  • 50 custom cubes
  • 2 cube guides
  • 2 playing mats
  • rules of play

A very fun game - purchased as a gift for my 7-year old son's birthday.

It's a simple game to play - flick your cubes and try to knock the enemy king cube off the board. As your cubes get onto the enemy side of the board, the have several faces that make them 'captured' and you need to roll to see if they are killed or you take them back to your castle. Using more advanced rules you have special cubes that freeze enemy cubes, heal some of your dead cubes and vanish in the enemy territory to reappear later. Games are pretty quick - just a few minutes per round.

The game mat in the box was two square pieces and there was folds that were hard to get rid of. Luckily there was a very helpful reviewer who mentioned that you can get better mats by complaining to Gamewright - so I opened the box very early and wrote to the company who sent me new mats free of charge. The new mats took a couple of weeks to arrive (from USA) and arrived just in time for the birthday. The new mats are a different material and are split into three rectangles. However I haven't tried folding them up - I keep them flat outside the box when the game is stored away - so I don't know for sure if the new material is fold-resistant. If you get three mat pieces in the box it means you have the new product.

I disagree with another reviewer who complained about the cubes being hollow plastic and light and saying they should be solid wood. If you give these cubes are very hard flick your finger nail will hurt, so I can't imagine enjoying a game with solid cubes, my fingers would hurt too much!

My wife and I both enjoy playing this with our son, and I can see the game coming out at Xmas also to play with his uncles. And it's easy to balance skills - the stronger player just leaves some cubes out from his side. Actually I lose most of my army when playing my son, but I guess I'll gradually get more of my army back as he improves at the game.

Very fun dice flicking game! This is a great little game. It comes with 50 custom dice and three mats that you line up to form your board. You take 25 dice each and place them in your castle in order to protect your King dice. You are trying to knock your opponents King dice off the board. There are different dice with different powers and a cool little capture system.

My copy had one wrong mat in and I am currently waiting for a replacement. The mats don't lie completely flat but it isn't as bad as some have found. The dice are plastic with stickers but this makes them easy to see.

My 5 year old son loves this, we play a simplified version without using all the powers, but we are slowly introducing them and it's great to see him grasping basic tactics which could be used in other games.

The biggest downside is that set up can sometimes take longer than gameplay but both are quick and you will definitely play more than one game in a sitting!

Disappointing as this was a Christmas present,

Unfortunately the mats provided were very creased making it very hard to play properly. There was one cube missing in our copy, with an additional cube in its place, meaning we couldn't play the game properly either. However a quick email to gamewright, the publisher has promised a new version 2 of this game to be sent to us.

The game looks like it should be quite good, so waiting with anticipation for the new version.

This game is a great laugh, yet also strategic, tactile and skill is required to be victorious. My mat was creased, so I emailed Gamewright, they sent me a replacement within 2 weeks. This game may look bad, but when you play, you will totally have a blast ! Cheers Gamewright :)

Loads of block-flicking fun for the whole family -- just make sure you're in a nice open room, as crawling under furniture and lifting sofas to retrieve stray cubes isn't exactly exhilarating.

Only problems I've had are that the mat comes folded, rather than rolled, and thus has creases. Not great, but I just treat it as a terrain feature. I haven't tried ironing it flat or anything yet, though.

Some of the stickers on the cubes seem to wear and chafe easily, and the cubes themselves could easily chip (they're thin plastic) if shot around a non-carpeted room with force.

Still, it's a great little game for some head-to-head laughs. Very simple to play, and lots and lots of fun.

LOVE this game ! It has a classically simple concept, defeat the enemy army by knocking the opposing King off the board. Easy to get started and in no time you have mastered the basic game and are flicking cubes around the board with great gusto. A game lasts on average about 10 mins but can sometimes be over sooner if a player produces a few lucky shots.

Then the tactical side of the game plan dawns on you . What cubes to select to make up your army and give it a balance of special strengths and abilities, where to position your King so that he is not vulnerable to attack and how best to build your defense around your King . THEN YOU'RE REALLY HOOKED !

From 7 to 70 year olds, everyone will enjoy playing Cube Quest. Great family fun and equally addictive for serious game players with a killer instinct .

This game is just fun. A simple dexterity game (the mats didn't bother me that much, if anything they added an aspect to the game) but it's just fun... definitely a must have if you're thinking about kids, but fun for any age.
