Dicewars DS is a multiplayer version of a popular Flash based strategy game Dicewars for Nintendo DS handheld console. Your task is to conquer the whole game field by rolling dice. Each turn you may attack any opponent’s territory from one of your adjacent territories as long as your territory has more than one die on it. When attacking, If you roll more than the defender, you win.

At the end of each turn, the greatest number of adjoining territories you have is calculated, and you are awarded a bonus of that number of dice, which are placed randomly on your territory.

Author notes:

I’m currently preparing the version 0.4.0, trying to make sure all the known bugs are fixed for it. Expected release date approximately one week ahead.

24/09/07 update – I’m currently mostly waiting. For updated sound effects, new website layout, getting the server application debugged thoroughly. Meanwhile, I’ve been playing around with ad-hoc networks and trying to get two DS’s to communicate with each other without internet / wireless access point. Hopefully in the future Dicewars DS can be also played locally with 2-8 DS’s.
