Boardgames in Blighty News – Press release from Cubiko Games announcing JamSumo for 2015
Gavin Birnbaum, the driving force behind all the games published by Cubiko Games, showed JamSumo for the first time at Essen Spiele 2014. Every copy of JamSumo is handmade in Sapele (Mahogany family) by Gavin, this is why he will only have 32 copies ready for release on 29th May 2015 at The UK Games Expo.
JamSumo is actually 2 different dexterity games, Jam and Sumo. Each game is for 2 – 4 players and will take about 45 minutes to play. Both games are suitable for all gamers as they are simple to learn and simple to play – they’re just difficult to master.
Jam; Set your dice to number 4 so that you start the game with 24 points…bad points. On your turn flick your dice through the hole at the centre of the board to get rid of the bad points. Easy, just don’t miss and don’t make those 4s turn into 6s. When one player gets all their dice out, the rest of the players count up their bad points and the player with the lowest score after 4 rounds is the winner.
Sumo; Set your dice to number 3 so that you start the game with 18 points…good points. On your turn flick your dice to knock your opponents off the board (or though the hole). Easy, just don’t miss your opponents and try and get your dice to change to 6 for a high score. When one player gets loses all their dice, the rest of the players count up their good points and the player with the highest score after 4 rounds is the winner.
Jamsumo costs £30 and will only be available at UK Games Expo. To reserve a copy of JamSumo e-mail Gavin via firstname.lastname@example.org
