Game Overview



As a lifelong competitive dice fisherman, you are confident in your ability to catch fish with your remarkable rolls. But you can't be overly modest about your skills in this competition! Show your opponents you can walk the talk with your spectacular dice fishing skills and put these braggarts in their place!



In Dice Fishing: Roll & Catch, in each round players secretly bid how many dice they think they need to roll specific numbers (and sometimes combinations of numbers) to catch certain fish. Players bidding with the fewest dice will go first, but fewer dice mean less chance to meet the requirement. If they failed to catch the fish, the player with the second-fewest dice will have a chance, and so on and so forth.


You need to roll at least a 3, 4, and 5, and the total value of
your dice roll must be 17 or higher to catch this giant squid. 

When the fish cards are depleted, the player with the most points (hooks) wins the game!

All the fish has different requirement to be caught. Let's see how well you can fish with dice! 




Mini-Expansion (7 new cards)

Mini-expansion - Double Hook (2022)

There are 7 new fish cards and a set of new rules (compatible with the previous version) in the expansion. In each round, you will reveal 2 fish cards in 2 fishing ponds. When you roll the dice, you have a chance to win fish from both ponds!

This twist sounds simple but it creates very interesting mind-bugging changes when you evaluate your wager. Should you go early and try to catch the easy fish in the breeze? Or should you aim high with a ton of dice and pray that both fish are not caught by others before you have the shot? Try Double Hook, and have more than double the fun!
