Polydi Challenge, Run, or Hide™ - Polydi Game Rules
  View Polydi Attributes from the Polydi biography pages.

Summary: This is an entry level ROLE PLAYING GAME that requires strategic thinking as well as basic addition skills.  Each player has a choice of ACTIONS. They will select these actions based on the attribute levels of the Polydi on their team.  Two or more players.

How to Play 

Each player starts with an equal number of Polydi on their team.

Each player takes a turn selecting who to face in competition.

Step 1: ALL players secretly place ONE Polydi in the palm of their hand without other players seeing the Polydi they have selected.  Once players make their selection, they will hold their sealed hand out for all to see that they have officially selected their Polydi.

Step 2: The player who’s turn it is, selects ONE other player to be their opponent.  Those two players will be the only players in the first duel. 

Step 3: The two players will declare which ACTION their Polydi will take to begin this duel (they let everyone know if their Polydi plans to Challenge, Run, or Hide).

Step 4: After announcing their “Action” plan, the two players now show each other the Polydi they have selected for this duel.

Step 5: The first player will now roll their Polydi.  They continue rolling until they land on a number.

Follow the chart below based on the “Actions” the two players selected and the roll of the Polydi.

  • Tip: If the Polydi Symbol is rolled, it can have a significant effect on strategy.

Follow the instruction below based on the ACTIONS selected by BOTH players in the duel. Important: The method of scoring will change if either player rolls the Polydi Symbol and chooses to change either players originally selected action.  Keep in mind that the actions may change more than once in a duel if the Polydi Symbol is rolled more than once.

The goal is to capture all the Polydi from the other players.
