Einfach Genial: Das Würfelspiel, along with Keltis: Das Würfelspiel and Würfelwurst, is part of a line of dice games packaged in cubes from Kosmos.
On your turn, you roll your dice (which feature a differently colored and shaped symbol on each face) and score as many points for each symbol on the rolled dice as there are symbols on the dice in front of the other players. You can roll at most three times, so knowing when to keep your result or gamble for a better one is the difference between victory and defeat.
Players record these points on an individual scoring board with tracks for each color, and the first player to move all colors to seven points wins. Progress is complicated by three barriers on the scoring tracks, which cannot be passed unless all colors have been bumped to a certain level of points – thereby forcing players to push their colors evenly.
Einfach Genial: Das Würfelspiel was originally released as one of three games in Fantasy Flight Games' Ingenious Challenges. It is a slightly smaller version: here the score pad only goes 1 to 7.
