One player rolls two dice. Play is simultaneous. Each player plays at the same time on their own scoresheet. Each player chooses how to use the two dice. Other players may make other decisions.
One die shows the location (area) for the construction while the other shows the shape of the area that can be renovated.
Each player fills in their chosen shape type within their selected area. Players should aim to cover the squares containing the triangles and leave the squares containing the circles uncovered.
If you can’t draw a shape, you must cross off a ‘no throw’ box. The game ends when someone has crossed off all three of their ‘no throw’ boxes. The player who is furthest through their renovation wins.
Any number of players can play the game. Palatial is also ideal for playing online via videoconferencing.
To play, you need two regular six-sided dice. If you don’t have any to hand you can just ask Google to roll some for you. Click on blue square with the ‘6’ on to add more dice to the roll.
