The innkeeper of "The Wild Boar" tavern is a sly old dog! While he
treats humble guests who don't ask for much to free rounds, for
hard-drinking boozers he closes the tap and keeps the cool brew for
Polterfass is a dice-rolling game without dice! Yes, the dice have been
replaced by small beer barrels, and the active player each round is the
innkeeper who shares his brew with players who keep their requests
The game includes nine barrels — two of them being special ones — that
are rolled out of a die cup. The normal barrel bases show numbers, while
the special barrel bases show symbols that allow the innkeeper to double
other values or cancel them. After each roll, only the values/symbols of
"standing" barrels count.
After the active player has rolled for the first time, the other players
secretly place cards with numbers in front of them. The active player
then decides whether to reroll, change the values, or end his turn. Once
his turn ends, the guests reveal their cards and sum them. If the
innkeeper's total is less than this sum, he wins this round, keeping all
the beer for himself while the guest with the highest card actually
loses points! If the innkeeper's total is higher, each player scores the
value of his played card, and the innkeeper keeps the rest.
When one player has at least 75 points, the game ends, and the player
with the most points wins!
