Review #91 – Free Tabletop Game
ButtonMen, Roll the Dice and Fight!
ButtonMen is a two-player, free, dice fighting game. It's a really simple setup, but it's full of strategy and risk.
Each player chooses a character, and then takes the five dice that make up his or her fighting style. A character with mostly small dice (d4 and d6) is “fast”, while a character with mostly large dice (d12 and d20) is “strong”.
After the initial roll, player try to capture their opponent's dice with Power Attacks and Skill Attacks. When players cannot capture anymore, the round ends and they score points with each die they could capture from their opponents and keep from their initial pool.
This is not a complete explanation of the rules, but they are really easy, so you shouldn't have any problem with them.
And as a final recommendation, you should start with the “Fightball” Character Set. They don't have any special dice with special rules, and they offer seven or even eight starting dice for you to choose your pool of five, so it's easier to experiment and get the feel of each combination. Have fun fighting!
