Twinkle, twinkle, little star. I know my dice collection won't be finished until they're as numerous as the stars. So, seeing a new dice game gets my attention. And that's what we have in Twinkle, a new game coming from V-Cube and being shown off at Essen Digital as well as on Tabletopia soon.
About the game:
In Twinkle, the boundless universe comes to your table as you build your own constellation. Having the role of a stellar creator, your task is to decorate the night sky using colorful dice as stars and win the competition among other creators who share the same goal. Choose your star-dice carefully, foresee your opponents’ moves and take risks at the right moment in order to claim victory.
A complete game is divided in 7 rounds. During the 7 rounds of the game, players gradually form their own constellation by adding one die per round. Each player’s dice combine to score victory points according to the scoring cards. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner.
The board has 8 Starting Stars, where 2 Stars of the same color correspond to each player. From these Starting Stars, players will begin to form their constellation, eventually placing a total of 7 dice and collecting victory points. In each round, every player in their turn selects one die and attaches it either a) to one of their Starting Stars or b) to one of their already placed die, adding a connector between them.
