Quick wits, fast hands

Emerald Skulls is a fast action, push-your-luck dice gambling game for 1-6 players.

Test your wits and luck to fill the skull with dice and place speedy wagers on other players’ rolls. With virtually no down-time, it's always your turn to play!

win the pot
Gamble your gears

When the pot of gears runs out, the player with the most is the winner!

Start with 3 dice, or spend your precious gears to add more to your pool. But be careful - once you place dice on the skull, you can no longer put dice on lower tiers for the rest of your attempt.

push your luck
A skull full of dice

Each round, one player is the tumbler, rolling dice and placing them on the 5 tiers of the Emerald Skull. The more dice you place without busting, the better your rewards!

Keep an eye on your opponents - you can foil their plans by avoiding their predictions.

Will you chicken out, bust, or reap the rewards of the Emerald Skull?

Real-time betting
Place your bets

While the tumbler takes their turn with the dice, it's your turn to gamble on their final results. Wager on a wide range of unique outcomes, and even counter-bet against your opponents.

Be quick - The first to place their marker on a winning result gets the highest payout!

Use your tricks
Pick your move

There are lots of ways to roll for success in Emerald Skulls, from buying extra dice to... picking your nose?!

You may remove a die from the nose of the skull. Re-roll it, along with all your remaining dice. However, if you leave nose dice alone, you'll earn useful re-roll cubes. So don't over-pick!
