Two wacky and weird dice games, designed in collaboration with The World Alternative Games. One game is for two-six individual players, and the other a Tournament game for as many teams of three as you can muster. Both games are played with the twelve specially-designed dice, handily packaged in a card tube (doubles as a dice-shaker!), with rules to the two games.
So, if you've ever fancied the idea of bog-snorkelling, but don't like getting wet and muddy; Russian egg roulette, but don't want to risk getting egg on your face; or worm charming, but don't really fancy worms, now you can enjoy an encounter with all three in the safety and comfort of your own home - or, indeed (almost) anywhere!
The World Alternative Games were launched in our local town of Llanwrtyd Wells in 2012. For the 2018 Games we were asked if we could produce a dice game in association with the event, and The Alternative Games is the result!
The Alternative Games comprises two games, both using specially-designed and produced dice, with faces representing three of the events that take place as part of the World Alternative Games (bog-snorkelling, worm-charming and Russian egg roulette).
As part of 2018's World Alternative Games an inaugural Tournament was held at the Stonecroft Inn, Llanwrtyd Wells - you can see some photos of the Tournament, as well as some of the other World Alternative Games events, on our Facebook page.
The game is available to buy from the Stonecroft Inn, or, if you don't happen to be in the vicinity of lovely Llanwrtyd Wells, you can now buy it from our shop. All proceeds go to the World Alternative Games. You can find out more about the World Alternative Games at their website..
