Panda Royale is an energetic dice drafting game for 2-10 players. With over 100 gorgeous dice in the box. During 10 rounds you will add new dice to your team to compete for the highest score. Each color of dice has special abilities, so you must choose wisely.
Each year as the mid-summer festival begins, the seven panda clans gather to celebrate their many years of peace and prosperity. After all the feasts, stories and games the Elders host the annual competition wherein the bravest of all pandas gather together to battle for honor and glory. The panda clans each have their own powers and abilities and the Elders consider those strengths carefully as they assemble their teams from members of each of them.
In this dice drafting game, you will play as one of the panda Elders and will choose pandas to join your team from among the seven clans (represented by seven colors of dice). Each panda clan will offer unique abilities to your team, so choose wisely in order to accumulate the highest score over 10 rounds.
Panda Royale is played over 10 rounds. Players begin with one die and add another die of their choice each round so that all players are rolling 10 dice by the end of the game. Each round consists of just four steps making it super easy to learn and teach. The entire game plays in about 20 minutes too, so you can enjoy several games in a single game night with tons of friends or family.
Players roll their dice and calculate their scores. Each color of dice is counted differently and impacts the gameplay in its own way. Purple dice are always doubled, while green dice are twenty-sided. Blue dice are the most common but can be double if you collect a special glitter die. Each color has unique properties that can affect your strategy. The included score sheets make it easy to tally your score each round.

Any players who have a clear rogue die may use it to steal a die from any other player. Use your steal strategically to gain an advantage at the right time without upsetting the wrong opponent. If you're playing with kids, leave the clear dice out altogether so no one gets their feelings hurt!
Finally, players draft one new die to add to their hand and continue to the next round. The drafting order is determined by each player's total yellow dice score. Gain yellow dice early on to get a drafting advantage, or steal another player's yellow dice to keep them under your thumb. Or risk it all and don't waste any turns collecting yellow dice so you can have more room for bigger-scoring options!
