Players roll the dice and multiply their totals to find their positions on the board.
By creating lines and squares of four counters players score points and take territories.
You have two choices , will you block or will you build?
BUT… The true aim of the game is to roll Vapoosh!
Vapoosh! Always Wins!
But…. beware of Vapooh –it’s not as gross as it sounds .
Includes all your old favourites: extra go, special squares, miss a go, point scoring , point losing, taking other players pieces and taking most of the board, the pointlessly mean rule and best of all the chance of coming up trumps even when the odds seemed stacked against you.
