Roar and Write! – An Animal Kingdoms Game
It’s time for the Selection Committee of the Animal Kingdom to choose the new monarch to rule over all. Now it’s up to you to appease the five council members on the Selection Committee to win the Regency. The catch…each Committee member is appeased in a different way, so you must choose wisely as you can only appeal to one each Age.
Roar and Write is a competitive press-your-luck game about impressing different council members on the selection committee, garnering favor throughout the five kingdoms, and completing your own personal objectives to rise to the top of the selection committee’s choices for the new ruler of the Animal Kingdoms.
Do you have what it takes to impress the Selection Committee over your opposing candidates?
Roar and Write is played over 5 ages, and in each age a communal pool of 6 dice is rolled three separate times. You’ll select dice in order to make offerings to members of the council and gain favour in the 5 kingdoms, ultimately trying to meet a council member’s unique preferences (such as a certain sum, all 1’s, only odds, etc).
The more selection council members you appease throughout the 5 ages, the more you are rewarded. The sooner you write down your last council offering of the age the better. But don’t forget your own needs too! Fulfilling your own personal agenda will boost your score as well.
At the end of the 5th Age, your personal agenda is revealed, scores are tallied, and the new Monarch is revealed!
