Sample Moves

  • Basic Info

    We used to play knucklebones back in our school days - in corridors and classrooms during breaks, on football fields and in backyards after classes, or simply at home - with friends or family - really with anyone who wanted to have some fun. But the game itself is much, much older - it goes all the way back to ancient Greece, where it was played with small rocks. The basic rules have remained the same through the centuries - players would toss up and catch the knucklebones on the back or front of their hands - all in various combinations, depending on the currently performed move.

    Our goal is to reintroduce this long forgotten game to new generations and to be honest - get us all offline for a bit.

    We’re all so entangled in our online presence that we often forget the most basic forms of fun and interaction. And so - we have taken the original concept of Knucklebones and pushed it to the next level - we are introducing cards, 2 new game scenarios, 3 new speed variations and a bunch of extras. The original scenario of our game enables 4 completely different versions of gameplay!

  • General setup

    1 to 7 players (in reality there’s no real maximum amount of players - you only need to keep in mind that the more players participate, the longer the gameplay gets). From our experience, the game is suitable for 7+ year old kids.

  • Classic game scenario

    This is the way we used to play back in our schooldays.

    The goal is to perform (5+1) basic moves one after another - 1Up, 2Up, 3Up, 4Up, 5Up and the Joker. The last move determines how many points you get in each round. If you fail on any of first 5 moves you don’t get to the Joker, you don’t receive any points and have to pass on the knucklebones to the next player. Round one is finished once all the players have finished performing (5+1) their moves. You can play as many rounds as you want - we suggest 5 rounds for quick play (around 15 min. for 3 players), or 10 to 20 rounds for longer and more challenging games. The player who collects the most points in all rounds wins.

  • Friendly or Aggressive mode

    Friendly

    In this mode, the knucklebones cards come into play for the very first time! The cards are divided into 5 point groups (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 points per card). There are 5 cards in each group, so we have 25 unique moves! There is also a Joker card and 5 special „Joker Score” cards.

    In this friendly mode, each player draws cards from the deck and tries to perform randomly selected moves (one card per player, one player after another). The players have only one chance - if they complete the move, they keep the card and the points assigned to it. However, if they fail, the card goes back to the bottom of the stack.

    The sum from all the gathered cards through the gameplay represent the total number of each players’ points. We suggest to play a minimum of 20 rounds, but you can go all the way and play until all the cards from the deck are spread among the participating players.

    Aggressive

    All modes are fun, but this one brings a bit of the gamble into the gameplay! The game features an attacking and a defending player. They switch roles during the gameplay, and they can both earn and lose points. Moreover, they can also pawn the points they achieved in order to take over a move which the other player failed to perform.

  • Time/speed modes

    Max in 90

    Your goal here is to get the maximum amount of points within 90 seconds in classic mode. It’s really challenging :) Once you get to the last move - the Joker - it get’s tricky and exciting at the same time - you need to quickly choose - speed or precision! And than - you need to repeat all 5+1 steps as many times as you can within the set timeframe. Remember - as in classic mode - you’re scoring only in last move, so first 5 moves have to be super quick.

    Super Speed Mode

    In this scenario you will need to get a stopwatch. Perform 1-5 moves of classic mode and record your time. Fastest one win. You can perform as many rounds as you want. Before the start of the game simply agree with your opponents how many rounds you want to play and you’re ready to roll!

    Super Perfect Speed Mode

    Only for super experienced players. You need to perform regular super speed mode with perfect joker on top if it (all 5 knucklebones must land in your palm). It’s really tricky, bet hey, if Chuck can do it, so can you!
