Party Game No. 1 – The Dice Is NIce

The one and only party game – finally on your iPhone & iPod touch with realistic graphics and sound effects.

Mäxchen (also Mäxle or Meiern) is a game of dice which is very popular in Europe.
For those of you who don’t know the rules yet:

It is a dice game which is very easy to learn and suitable for any number of players. Each player throws the dice in turn and tries to get a higher number then his/her predecessor. Bluffing/lying is possible because the dices are covered. The real or imaginary number is announced to the subsequent player, who may decide to believe or not. If the subsequent player detects the bluff correctly the first player gets one point taken off. Is the subsequent wrong then he gets one point taken off.

The order of the dice numbers: 31, 32, 41, 42, 43, 51, …, 65, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 21 (also called Mäxchen/Mäxle/Meier).

If one player announces a Mäxchen to his subsequent player then he/she can do the following:
– believe the result without seeing the dices -> he accepts the result and gets only one point taken.
– don’t believe the announcement but it was correct -> he gets two point taken off
– don’t believe the announcement and it has been a bluff -> the first player gets two points taken off

One turn is finished when a player gets one or two points taken off..
On the first turn the best looking player starts, the following round the looser of the previous turn.

The aim of the game is not to get points taken off but to get your friends loose as often as possible.
