From the manufacturer
Luck O' The Dice comes in a box that is nicely divided to hold the dice, coins and cards all separately.
The game contains:
- 72 Playing Cards
- 24 Green Dice
- 40 Custom Plastic Gold Coins
- 25 Custom Plastic Silver Coins
- 1 Instruction Booklet in English
Each turn consists of three steps:
- Leprechaun Play
- Dice Play
- Press Your Luck (optional)
During Leprechaun Play, players interact with their opponents by playing one of seven leprechaun cards: Subtracter, Snatcher, Sharer, Stealer, Skipper, Slicer, and Staller. As the names suggest, these cards allow players to impede their opponents' progress as well as speed their own. The Slicer, for instance, allows a player to cut the number of dice an opponent has on their next turn.
During Dice Play, players roll their dice up to two times to complete combinations found on the dice cards in their hands. Pot O' Gold rolls are combinations that require all six dice to complete and do not require a card. These combinations are worth the most coins. Press Your Luck is an optional step that allows a player to roll a third time.
End of Game
The game ends as soon as a player completes five dice cards. The player with the most coins at the end of the game wins.

Luck O’ Dice is a game similar to Yahtzee, and has similar luck but for different reasons.
In the game you will be drawing 5 cards from the deck to create your starting hand. Some of the cards will have goals; others can cause bad things for other players (which may also benefit you). Each turn you will roll six dice. You can then re-roll any or all dice. After the second roll you must declare what you are rolling for. If you do not get your goal you will be penalized with losing coins. If you meet your goal you will get coins. If you make your goal on the first or second roll you will gain bonus coins listed on the card. The object of the game is to gain the most coins.
You can roll for one of the goals on a card, or for one of 5 different “Pot O’ Gold Combos (which does not require a card), or you can roll a 3 of a kind and take three cards from they deck and decide how many to keep). In addition to rolling, you can play a Leprechaun Card that will hurt another player, and may also help you. You need to be careful how many cards you collect, for they do count against you at the end of the game.
The game ends when the first player gains 5 completed goals. The player that ends the game will get bonus coins for going out based on the roll of a single dice. The player with the most coins wins.
What sets this apart from Yahtzee is the player interaction, and having to draw cards for your goals. Remember that some cards will be played against other players so most players will need to gain additional cards to complete five goals.
I can say that this was is a great game that can be played by families, gaming night as a light hearted fun filler game, and by kids and their friends. Even if you are not a gamer, this game is easy to teach and only lasts about 20 minutes. This is a gateway game that is very portable and can be played anywhere.
If anyone is curious, because of the convention I have added a copy of this game to my permanent game collection. For those who sleeve their cards, the size is 57.5 x 89 for 72 cards. 4 cards are reference / Pot O’ Gold Combos, 13 are Leprechaun, and the rest are goal cards. It also comes with 24 dice (six for each player), 40 gold and 25 silver coins. The box is divided into three sections (dice/cards/coins) which makes cleanup a snap.
The attached picture shows the Reference card and Pot O' Gold Combinations, some of the Leprechaun Cards, and some of the Goal Cards.
