Nada Review (Blue Orange Games)

What It Is

Nada is a dice game where two to four players roll dice and try to find matching images to win the dice. The game comes with 18 white and 18 orange dice with images of anchors, palm trees, butterflies, ghosts, cherries, rockets, rabbits, skulls, and more. You randomly choose and roll six of each color dice. Then players race to find matching pairs that include at least one from each color and shout them out. The first player to shout the match wins the dice. Play continues with the remaining dice until all the dice have been collected. If during a roll there are no matches, the first player to shout "Nada!" and put his or her hand on the dice wins them all. If that player is wrong, though, the penalty is steep, and he or she sits out until the next round. This game is played in three rounds using 12 new dice each time, and the player at the end of the three rounds with the most dice wins.
