NadaIf you are like me, you like dice games, but the problem is that most dice games are ones that rely entirely on the chance of rolling the best side of each die and if you are like Nerdarchist Dave your dice luck just might be not up to snuff.

So let me introduce you to Nada.  Nada is a dice game. I.e. a game involving lots of dice but the rolling of the dice is rather inconsequential to the final outcome.   The real way to victory is to recognize a pattern or  duplicates and call them out before your opponents do.

The design is quite simple.  You grab the correct dice out of the dice bag roll all of the dice call out any symbol that has more than one die face showing that.  You claim the dice you call out.  When there are no dice left in the center with duplicate pattern call out nada and place your hand palm down over the board gamesdice.  If you are correct you claim the leftover dice.

If you call nada or a pattern that are not duplicates you are out for that round and your other opponents get to continue the round without you.  It is a very dangerous position to be in if you are only playing this with 2 players.

After the first round is complete you do the process 2 more times and then count the dice in front of you.  Who ever has the most dice wins.  It is very simple, quite fun and you get to work on your perception skill while you play.  Fun all around in this dice game.

Now the other supreme advantage is that this game comes with 36 dice.  18 white dice with orange symbols and 18 orange dice with white symbols.  You get a wide selection of cool and crazy symbols on this dice.  They are sharks, bunnies and palm trees.  You get flowers crowns and cherries.  You even get rockets, ghosts and skulls.  With all of this you could play a game called nerdy or not.  They can be used to increase your dice collection.  You can even use the dice for chaos effects in an rpg or even as battle markers or tokens if you are playing on  a grid.

The last thing I see as an option for these cool dice is you could even make up your own rules/games using just the dice here or adding other cool stuff from other board games.   So head over to here, and get your copy today.

Until Next Time, Stay Nerdy!
