In Cubist, you and your opponents are
architects competing to build a grand and inspiring new Modern Art
Museum including its interior sculptures or installations. Aptly
enough, your building materials are cubes, or more precisely, dice!
On each turn you roll two dice and place them in your studio as raw
materials for your cubist sculptures. From there you position these dice
to complete commissioned installations for the museum. Dice with
identical numbers can be stacked on top of one another to give your
sculpture elevation and grandeur. Dice with adjacent numbers go next to
one another to construct unconventional footprints of modernism. You can
press your luck by committing to a certain risky commission hoping that
no one else will complete it first or play it safe by locking up your
dice for later use.
You can also use your dice to enlist the aid of masters of modern art
like Juan Gris, Franz Marc and Olga Rozanova. Each installation you
complete allows you to contribute dice to the building of the Museum
itself. You will have to sculpt cleverly but quickly to get the new
Museum named after you!
