Stacks and Wits is a single player turn based strategy game. Your strength is in your number of dice. War between players determines the winner. Do you risk dice you have to get more or will your strategy fail you? Devise your strategy, take your turn. Let the roll of the dice determine your fate.
The goal is to control the entire map, by attacking opponents territory. Any territory that the player, the yellow ones, owns that has a stack of two or more on it can attack an opponents territory that it touches. The opponents will attempt to do the same to you and each other. The size of the stack determines the chance of a win on each move, that number of dice is rolled against the opponents. The greater the sum is the winner. Once you have made your moves, if any, the turn is ended by pressing end turn. Upon a turn ending the stacks on your territories are increased by the maximum number of connected territories. If you lose all your territory you lose the game. If you control all of them, you win.
Versions 1.3 has changed the opponents AI, the game should be slightly more challenging.
