Hugs and Bugs


This is a dice game with a few cards that affect your die-rolling options, and that of your opponents. The eight special dice have “happy symbols” on some faces and various “bugs” on others. Three to five youthful players can roll and re-roll these dice as they attempt to combine matching pairs to gain points. The re-rolling, however, requires the playing of certain cards… and there are only a few of these. At times, it’s to a player’s advantage to help an opponent with a “Hug” card. Points are recorded by means of small gems on a scoring card, and certain cards can affect the scores as well. It’s a fun and fast semi-cooperative game for the whole family.

This game can be played by 3-5 players ages 6 and up. One game of Hugs and Bugs takes about 40 Minutes to play.
