Core Mechanic : A 3d20 Dice Game

Each match of the 3d20 Core Mechanic Dice game is played in three rounds.

Each player has starts the game with three pools of points and three twenty sided dice.

Each die, and each pool of points is designated as Blood, Sweat, or Tears.

First Round.

Each player chooses a die to roll.

All three dice are rolled for ties.

The player must have points in a corresponding pool to choose a die.

If a player has no points remaining in any pool, they must roll their blood die.

Gambling phase, each player chooses to take 5, 10, or 20.

Rolling a twenty always wins.

…triangulation….

..tears is ten times blood, and sweat is five times blood.

..first round everyone has a plus twenty to their roll..flat role..

..gain points from defender pools..by multipliers..

..if tears are depleted one point of sweat become five points of tears.

..if sweat is depleted one point of blood becomes ?five/ten? points of sweat..

..tears convert..

..sweat transfers..

..blood destroys..

..if a blood die wins, all losers remove gambled points from defending total.

..if a sweat die wins, all losers reduce their totals by the gamble, and winner gains..

..if a tears die wins, all losers convert defended points into tears..that effects tears…..

..rotate tears to blood? well, wait. hmm..

..example..

..20 tears convert to 1 blood..

..if sweat is depleted and tears are depleted blood converts to sweat at 10 to one.

..if tears are depleted and sweat is deplete blood converts to tears at 20 to one.

..side gambles..common? ..second place..

..diverging..numbers..

The Match is over when,

Three rounds have past.

The winner is the person with the most blood.

When playing a game winning a match grants no additional benefit to the next match, only the balances of points are retained from one match to the next in a game.

The Game is over when,

One player has collected all the Blood Sweat and Tears.

One player rolls three*?! 20s on the third round and has at least one pool with the greatest total.
