Cab e Quinal
Ruleset: Fixed Die


See the game Cab e Quinal for more details.


The value of one die is fixed for every throw.


In this version of Cab e Quinal, as described in Alfonso X's Libro de los Juegos, two dice are thrown and the value of the hypothetical third die is fixed, as decided by the players at the start. The starting position is also slightly different.


Two dice are throw on each turn. Players choose a value from one to six, which will be considered the value of a third die. One player places fourteen pieces on the sixth point of one quadrant, and one on the point directly opposite it on the other side of the board. The other player places fourteen pieces on the fifth point of the same quadrant as the fourteen of the other player, as well as one on the fourth point in that same quadrant.
