Podcast: TNTM’s How to play Buccaneer Bones by WATTSALPOAG

Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play the dice rolling game Buccaneer Bones by WATTSALPOAG Games. This is a game for up to 1-4 players ages 8+ and should take 15 minutes for a complete game.

Official Description

Sail your fleet of galleons to the Murky Isles, hiding place for some of the greatest pirate treasures ever buried. Roll the Buccaneer Bones (landlubbers call them “dice”) to send ships out to sea. When you reach the island, you get a special bonus just for being there. But the best part is the treasure! Find the treasure and bring it back to port, then set sail again. The first pirate to bring back three treasures claims the title of “Scourge of the Seven Seas”! Arrrr!!!

Each player in Buccaneer Bones starts with six ships on the six numbered ports of his player mat; each ship is in a sailing lane that consists of a port, a sea space, and an island. On a turn, the player rolls four dice, then rerolls as many as he wants; if he now has a pair, he advances the ship matching the number rolled one space (from port to sea or from sea to island) and if he has a three-of-a-kind, he advances the appropriate ship two spaces (from port to island). When a player has a ship on an island, he receives a bonus:

When on islands 1 or 6, he rolls one extra die; on islands 1 and 6, he rolls two extra dice. When on islands 2 or 5, he can add or subtract one from a rolled die; on islands 2 and 5, he can do this twice. When on islands 3 or 4, he can reroll any number of dice one extra time; on islands 3 and 4, he can reroll two extra times. When a player has a ship on an island, if he has a three-of-a-kind matching that island number, the ship grabs one treasure, then returns to port.

If a player can’t advance a ship, he can place his first mate (1) as a scout on an island to grant himself that power on his next turn, (2) as a thief on a treasure owned by a player with more treasure than him, giving him a chance to steal it next turn if he rolls any three-of-a-kind, or (3) as a defender to remove a thief on one of his treasures.

The game ends the round that a player collects his third treasure. If he’s the only one with three treasures, he wins; if multiple players have three, then the tied player who has more ships farther from his ports wins. Buccaneer Bones includes a couple of play variants, including rules for a solo game.

We have a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

TNTM: Talking Table Top Dice Games

Top 5 Dice Games

In this episode, Trevor and Danny give you their Top 5 list of Dice Games. There is much debate as to what constitutes a dice game. The common definitions are below. There will be some argument to these classifications I’m sure.

1. Pure dice games which include only dice and maybe some scoring or resource markers. Part of the appeal of such a game is the tactile experience of rolling.

2. Hybrid dice games which include dice as an important aspect, where dice are used in a key game mechanism as more than just a randomizer.

3. Board games that happen to have dice as a randomizer. The influence of the dice is isolated to resolving a particular kind of action, Outside of that action, it doesn’t matter that dice were used.

For this list Trevor and Danny consider games that fall into category #1 and 2. Dice must be an important factor in the game. Hopefully this video will help you make an informed decision about trying out one of the games mentioned.

As always, keep playing games!
