Double Dice guide - beginner tips and tricks

Posted by Jessica Famularo on November 2nd, 2017

Double Dice! is a stylish new puzzle game by Tigrido. It looks like a well made match 3 game, but we assure you Double Dice! will defy all of your expectations. The main gist is thus -- combine identical dice to create dice of a higher value to get as many points as possible before you run out of moves.

The game is actually a pretty deep puzzle game that requires a high level of strategy to master—if you're a fan of games like chess that hide innumerable techniques to master, Double Dice! is one to add to your collection.

If you're a beginner, though, we've come up with a few tips to help you go pro.

Try to link the number five dice

Don't match your number five dice right away. Wait and see if you can get another set of five nearby that can link with your first set. Number five dice clear out an entire row of die, so if you clear out another number five in the same row, you'll set off a chain reaction.

Tap the UFO

As you get to matching dice to create new dice of a higher value, you might be visited by a little UFO as time goes by. Tap on it quickly to get a nice coin bonus.

If you're stuck, make room for the crystals

Sometimes, though, you might get stuck. There are plenty of dice to match, but you may only have a few moves left, or you're not sure what the best combo is. If there's a crystal on your board, try clearing that out. It will change up the die significantly, giving you some fresh options that might inspire you.
