In Dice Brewing, the players become young, novice brewers who fight to become the head Brewer in a local brewery. Their goal is to acquire resources needed to brew the beer and to get new recipes and rewards that come with them - gold and mastery points. To do so, each player uses player board along with marketplace and black market cards that let him develop the resources he owns and acquire special ingredients tokens and action tokens.

How does the special effects cards works?
After spreading all the elements of the game, the player randomly selects 3 cards special effects and puts them face up over the recipes. From that moment the effects of work card counts for all players in each round. Cards effects are activated depending on what actions will be implemented by the players (eg. Thrown an appropriate value, or do not play the recipes cards, or action chips).
Examples of the effects of two cards:
- To the rescue - if the penalty roll of the dice in the penalty phase of the throw is "1". The player on the left side of you will come to the rescue and flip again chosen dice of the value of "1". You can re-roll only one bone, once per round.
- Recycling - if the brewing process you are using 4 or more dice, after cooking you can choose one of the dice that is designed to brew and move components back to the warehouse.
