I designed this one with ease of learning in mind, since my audience wasn’t gamers, but the fickle, predominantly senior festival crowd. I took inspiration from games like Farkle and Train Dice, but brought the die count down to three, since I was hand-painting the dice and under time pressure.

The Print and Play version has some rule changes, now that I’ve had a couple years to revise the design.
