Mark's #50: Konig der Maulwurfel
Translated into English, it means "King of the Dice Mouths" - and it's yet another wacky backstory for an even wackier racing game. In Konig der Maulwurfel, players draft their dice-mouths from a set of pieces: ramps, dice, # of special cards, heads (which have a numerical range), etc. On his turn, a player lets the die roll down the ramp onto the table. If he rolls a number inside the range listed on his head, he gets to move his dice-mouth next to where the die landed. The game is boardless - you simply set out gates for the dice-mouths to race through.
And you have fun. We've found that the game works better on a "live" table, where the 4-sided die bounces a bit. As well, you should use the advanced rules immediately, as the basic rules are a crock.
