Archery Dice is designed for four people to play at a time, but we found that even more could be included if you set up teams instead of just individual competition. Three flat targets are placed in a triangular pattern in the center of your playing field (a table or ottoman works great!) and four players (or teams of players if you so choose) stack their three colored dice on corresponding flat wooden disks outside of the triangled targets. We enjoyed trying out different spacing for the set up of the home base for our dice, but instructions recommend at least two target widths away. Players take turns "flicking" or thumping their dice in an attempt to have them land in the bulls-eye of the targets. Hand-eye coordination is helpful as you aim to land your die closer to the center than your opponent's land theirs and strategy comes into play as you bank targets for capture and try to knock out your opponents. The winner is determined when one person or team has claimed four targets.
